'Why is it okay to call Boris a liar?' Susanna Reid grills David Lammy over Keir Starmer

Shadow Lord Chancellor David Lammy appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain to discuss Keir Starmer with Susanna Reid and Alastair Campbell. Susanna detailed a lack of trust in Starmer due to backtracking of promises, something for which she said the Prime Minister has often been deemed a liar for. When Lammy went on to say Johnson was indeed a liar, Reid fumed at the MP, asking what makes it okay for him to call Johnson a liar and not Starmer.

“Can we trust Sir Keir Starmer?” The host began, adding: “We had a debate earlier about when Boris Johnson reneges on things that he has promised he’s called a liar.

“When Sir Keir Starmer reneges on things that he’s promised that’s simply being flexible.

“That’s a political interpretation isn’t it? For instance Keir Stamer does not back an increase in the minimum wage to £15 an hour despite the fact that when he was campaigning two years ago for workers of McDonald’s he said they should earn £15 an hour.

“In his leadership manifesto when he got elected to the party he made a commitment to common ownership that he doesn’t back nationalising the energy industry.”
