Who is Keir Starmer?

Keir Starmer has spent four years as opposition leader and has driven his party’s ideological stance from the left towards the political middle ground. Throughout the campaign, his message to voters is that a Labour government will bring change — of the reassuring rather than scary kind.

Before being in the opposition, Keir Starmer had served as prosecutor for England and Wales between 2008 and 2013. Earlier, Starmer was called by his opponents as “lefty London lawyer”, according to AP. 

He was knighted for his role leading the Crown Prosecution Service, and Conservative opponents like to use his title, Sir Keir Starmer, to paint him as elite and out of touch.
