Keir Starmer speaks to the country, not the party - Former Blair advisor

Mr Keir Starmer need to heal deep divisions within Labour UK's Labour names Keir Starmer leader as party trails in polls

Labour's new leader, Sir Keir Starmer, hit the ground running this weekend by writing to the Board of Deputies and pledging to do all he could to rid the party of the "stain" of antisemitism.

Other appointments include Anneliese Dodds as shadow chancellor and Nick Thomas-Symonds as shadow home secretary.

This is a breaking story.

The new leader of the opposition has vowed to make it his "mission" to reconnect the party with the public, saying Labour needs to change so trust can be regained.

Angela Rayner was elected deputy leader, replacing Tom Watson, who stood down as an MP before the general election in December. I want to build a coalition in all parts of the country, no matter how people previously voted.

Shortly before the result was announced on Saturday morning, Boris Johnson wrote to opposition party leaders inviting them to a coronavirus briefing as he insisted "we have a duty to work together at this moment of national emergency".

"So that when the time comes, we can serve our country again in government". "I hope the change in leadership is the beginning of a healing process and the party will be able to regain the trust of the British Indian community", he said, adding that the process would require time, effort and political will. "What is clear is that our first task is to support and help the government to ensure we beat Covid 19 as nation, but hold them to account and provide constructive opposition as we do".

He immediately addressed the issue of anti-Semitism that Corbyn was accused of failing to tackle, which tarnished the party's reputation and caused Jewish members to leave in droves. The leadership contest was long but I think the constructive and positive tone was a credit to Labour.

Mr Starmer has tried to cast himself as a unity candidate, and has promised to retain much of Mr Corbyn's programme, including commitments to re-nationalise railroads and increase income tax on the top 5 per cent of earners.

Jeremy Corbyn had announced he would step down as Labour leader in the wake of the disastrous election result a year ago which handed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson a landslide win.

Lisa Nandy also tweeted her heartfelt congratulations to Sir Keir.

The senior job for Nandy is a reward for the Wigan MP's strong performance in the Labour leadership race, where she reached the final three who went before the members - even though she came third behind Starmer and Rebecca Long-Bailey, with just 16% of first-preference votes.
