Re: New leader of the labour party

Well we have to wait until tomorrow for the final Shadow Cabinet makeup but that aside, his statements so far seem like he could be the man needed to revitalise Labour and get it back on track.

Starmer does not seem to be the sort to take his bat and ball home in a pique like Corbyn seemed to do. I await PMQs because I think Boris will have a problem with Starmer.

Re: New leader of the labour party

Ed Milband is returning to frontline politics as Labour’s shadow energy secretary, the party has disclosed, as the new leader, Keir Starmer, completed the announcement of his shadow cabinet.

As well as the return of the former leader, who stood down in 2015, David Lammy, the MP for Tottenham who has campaigned for justice for the Windrush victims, has been promoted to shadow justice secretary. Lord Falconer, the former solicitor general who was closely associated with Tony Blair’s government, will return to the shadow cabinet as shadow attorney general.

Rebecca Long Bailey, who came second in the contest to become leader to Starmer, has been given a job as shadow education secretary. She is one of few outright supporters of Jeremy Corbyn who have survived a cull of the last cabinet.

Emily Thornberry, the former shadow foreign secretary under Corbyn, will return as shadow international trade secretary. John Healey, who covered the housing brief under Corbyn, will be the party’s new defence spokesman.

Bit of a mixture there, maybe the right blend as well, now we need to see what their policies are & if they marry up to the 2019 manifesto.

Re: New leader of the labour party

It's reported today that the Labour Party is being sued in a group action for releasing the full and unredacted report into anti-semitism. The release of members' identities has left them open to the usual trolling and death threats, and they are suing the party for loss of privacy.
The figure is up to about £8m so far.
Happy days Keir!
