Keir Starmer’s ‘honour and integrity’ as he vows to quit if he’s fined over Beergate

The Daily Mirror contrasts his move with the prime minister’s refusal to go after he was fined. “This is what honour looks like, Mr Johnson” is the paper’s headline.

Daily Mirror says Keir Starmer has launched a dramatic fight-back over ‘Beergate’ by vowing to quit if he is fined by Durham Police.

In a high stakes move, the Labour leader tied his future to the fate of the police investigation launched by detectives last week.

The former director of public prosecutions insisted he was “very clear” that no rules were broken last April when up to 15 staff ate curry and drank beer while campaigning.

But he added: “If the police decide to issue me with a fixed penalty notice, I would of course do the right thing and step down.”

His deputy Angela Rayner, who was also at the event, said she would “do the decent thing” and resign if she received a fixed penalty notice.

The dramatic move piles pressure on the Prime Minister who has refused to quit despite being fined by the Met Police for breaking lockdown laws.
