I have known Keir Starmer well for 25 years as a close colleague and fellow human rights campaigner, and it is my pleasure to endorse him as our  PPC for Holborn and St Pancras. I first knew him when we worked together at Liberty, and we subsequently worked with the Labour Party on the introduction of the Human Rights Act. Keir has a formidable reputation as a brilliant barrister, working pro bono for clients facing the death penalty in other Commonwealth countries for many years. He is state educated from an ordinary background and this has driven his perspective throughout his working life. Above all, Keir is a very kind, considerate and thoughtful person who takes huge pleasure in collaborating with others from all walks of life. I know he would do us proud as an MP, and is a worthy successor to Frank.
