Keir Starmer

Martin Plaut

I am backing Keir because he has a unique track record of fighting for ordinary men and women. He backed the miners in their fight against the Thatcher government; gave free legal advice to campaigners against McDonalds; and is supporting Doreen Lawrence in her work for victims of justice. But above all I support Keir because he is a ‘big hitter’, capable of taking on anyone in the Tory party in the media. It's a skill the Labour Party desperately needs.
