Keir Starmer poised to RESIGN if found to have broken lockdown rules

NewsKeir Starmer poised to RESIGN if found to have broken lockdown rules


The Labour boss is weighing up stating that he believes receiving a fine for breaching Covid restrictions is a resigning offence for party leaders.

The move would allow him to continue calling on Boris Johnson to step down over partygate while he faces his own investigation for beergate.

One ally of Sir Keir told the Times: “There’s a clear logic to it.

“It would give him something to say at the despatch box when Johnson raises it.”

Another backer added: “He feels a huge sense of honour. He is the real deal.

“But he is less sure of himself on politics and determining what action would be best for him and the party.”

It comes as Sir Keir is facing mounting pressure over the beer-and-curry event in Durham in April 2021 being investigated by police for a possible breach of lockdown laws.

The Labour leader has insisted that the gathering in the run up to the Hartlepool by-election was within the rules.
