About our Keir Starmer news

Latest news on Keir Starmer, Labour leader and UK Prime Minister, providing comprehensive coverage of his policies, speeches, leadership, and role in British politics.

Sir Keir Starmer, born 2 September 1962, is the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Labour Party. A former human rights lawyer and Director of Public Prosecutions, Starmer entered politics in 2015 when he was elected MP for Holborn and St Pancras. He became Labour leader in April 2020, succeeding Jeremy Corbyn.

Starmer led Labour to a landslide victory in the 4 July 2024 general election, ending 14 years of Conservative rule. He took office as Prime Minister on 5 July 2024, pledging to focus on economic growth, public services reform, and tackling climate change. Key policies in Labour's 2024 manifesto included establishing a publicly-owned energy company, reforming the House of Lords, and introducing a "wealth creation" agenda.

Known for his forensic questioning style at Prime Minister's Questions, Starmer has positioned himself as a moderate, centrist leader. He has faced criticism from the left wing of his party for moving away from some of Corbyn's socialist policies. Starmer's leadership has also been marked by efforts to address antisemitism within Labour and reform the party's internal structures.

Starmer's political journey has been shaped by his background in law and human rights advocacy. As Director of Public Prosecutions from 2008 to 2013, he handled high-profile cases and introduced reforms to the Crown Prosecution Service. His legal career, which included pro bono work challenging the death penalty internationally, has influenced his approach to politics and justice reform.

As Prime Minister, Starmer faces significant challenges, including managing the UK's post-Brexit relationship with the EU, addressing the cost of living crisis, and implementing Labour's ambitious policy agenda. Our NewsNow feed provides comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of Starmer's premiership, policy announcements, and reactions from across the political spectrum, ensuring you stay informed about this pivotal figure in British politics.
