Keir Starmer has rolled up his sleeves, taken off his tie and headed to Essex to unveil his six first steps for government.

Is Starmer looking for Blairite comparisons? Is there the same enthusiasm for change as there was in 1997? And what are the hard questions Labour still needs to answer, but won’t?

Later we speak with Lewis in Tblisi ahead of another critical day of protests by those fighting the Russification of democracy in Georgia.

And the big reveal today comes from Jon. Right at the end. Don’t miss it!
