Labour Party leader Keir Starmer makes his pitch to UK voters with a speech vowing national renewal
U.K. Labour Party leader Keir Starmer is delivering that amounts to a public job interview for the post of prime minister
LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — U.K. Labour Party leader Keir Starmer delivers a speech on Tuesday that amounts to a public job interview for the post of prime minister. He'll set out to answer the question in many voters’ minds: “Why Labour?”
Starmer is addressing the opposition party's annual conference, likely the last before a national election next year. He needs to persuade voters fed up with economic stagnation and political turmoil to switch allegiance to his party, which has been out of office since 2010.
He plans to pledge “a decade of national renewal,” after what he depicts as 13 years of decline under the Conservatives.
“What is broken can be repaired, what is ruined can be rebuilt,” Starmer will say, according to the party.
