Keir Starmer accused of ‘running scared’ after pulling out of keynote speech
The Metro says Keir Starmer has pulled out of a keynote speech today as pressure mounts over the ‘beergate’ scandal.
The Labour leader is facing a police investigation into whether he broke the law by sharing a £200 takeaway with activists after a day of campaigning in Durham last April – a time when Covid restrictions banned indoor mixing, aside from at work.
A leaked memo appeared to show the politician’s meal was pre-planned, calling into question his insistence he followed all coronavirus rules.
He has said he continued working after the food, but the only business listed after 10pm on the document was a 15-minute walk back to his hotel.
