Serialisation of Red Knight: The Unauthorised Biography Of Sir Keir Starmer, in The Mail on Sunday on 13 June 2021.
Even now, says a biography the Labour leader tried to obstruct, he’s guilty of overplaying his working-class credentials.
Those who know Sir Keir Starmer well often speak of his decency, integrity, intellect and reluctance to give too much away about himself.
However, Labour’s local elections trouncing in May spurred him to greater efforts on the self-promotion front.
The opening move was an interview on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, in which he spoke tearfully and movingly about his mother’s life-debilitating illness.
