'Without any doubt, the first thing Boris Johnson is going to try to do is have a Queen's Speech on Thursday then bring back the Brexit bill for its first reading - the technical bit of it - on Friday.
At that point, I think they'll probably let Westminster and the new MPs have a bit of a breather.
There is an acknowledgement in No 10 - as there is right across politics - that the body politic is pretty exhausted, is fractious, people have been very angry and burnt out by everything that has happened.

He has been famous around the country for more than a decade for being desperate to be the prime minister, even if people haven't been quite sure what he'd like to do with that job.
He is also somebody who divides as much as he delights, and is an extremely controversial figure.
But he has also made a career of doing things that people have told him were impossible - from turning London blue to winning the EU referendum as Brexit's main cheerleader.
