Boris Johnson is cheered into Commons chamber - next to a grim-faced Corbyn: Jubilant PM welcomes his 'Blue Army' of MPs and taunts Labour by leading a pantomime-style chorus of 'let's get Brexit done!'
Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn came face to face today for the first time since the Tory election triumph - with the PM taunting that Parliament is 'vastly improved'.
As Parliament officially reconvened after the bombshell result, Mr Johnson was cheered to the rafters by his newly-swelled gang of MPs.
By contrast, Mr Corbyn was jeered as he entered - having been humiliated by voters last Thursday.
The two leaders endured an awkward walk side-by-side through Central Lobby to the Lords, where the Queen's instruction for Parliament to start sitting was read out.
Neither seemed to make any attempt to strike up conversation, after making clear their contempt for each other during the brutal campaign.
When they returned, Lindsay Hoyle was formally confirmed in the Speaker's chair without a vote.
And an elated Mr Johnson then said that 'democracy' had taken charge and the House could finally 'get Brexit done'
'I think this Parliament is a vast improvement on its predecessor,' he said.
'This Parliament is not going to waste the time of the nation in deadlock and delay.'
As he repeated the mantra of 'get Brexit done' that helped secure his stunning poll victory, Tory MPs chanted along with him.
In his own downbeat speech, Mr Corbyn said his job was still to hold the government to 'account'.
'The PM made many many promises and he must take responsibility to live up to them,' he said.
'He will be judged on whether he keeps these promises by the communities he made them to.'
The Father of the House, Sir Peter Bottomley, presided over the process.
He assumed the mantle of the MP with longest continuous service due to left-wing firebrand Dennis Skinner being humiliatingly ousted in Bolsover as the Tories smashed Labour's 'Red Wall' of northern heartlands.
MPs will start being sworn in this afternoon - a process that will take two days.
Earlier, Mr Johnson gathered his new 'people's Cabinet' after sending an emphatic message to Brussels that he will not countenance any further delays to Brexit.
The PM and his top team met in Downing Street after it was revealed that withdrawal legislation is being amended to rule out any extension of the transition period beyond December 2020.
Mr Johnson said the Tory victory in the election was 'seismic' and he was determined to lead a 'people's government'.
'The voters of this country have changed this government and our party for the better, and we must repay their trust now to change our country for the better,' he said.
He added: 'You ain't seen nothing yet.'
Mr Johnson carried out a few tweaks to his Cabinet last night, appointing Simon Hart to fill the gap at Welsh Secretary and elevating Nicky Morgan to the Lords so she could continue as Culture Secretary despite standing down from the Commons.
However, a much deeper overhaul of the government is being plotted for February, with suggestions a third of senior ministerial posts could be axed to streamline decision-making.
The premier told ministers they should have 'no embarrassment about saying we are a people's government and this is a people's Cabinet'.
The meeting came after Mr Johnson moved to scotch speculation that he could embrace a softer Brexit in the wake of his election landslide.
