Keir Starmer ‘turning Labour into the party of the establishment’, Unite chief Len McCluskey warns


Keir Starmer is at risk of turning Labour into “the party of the establishment”, the leader of one of Britain’s biggest unions has said.

Len McCluskey, the general secretary of Unite, warned that the opposition leader would be “ditched into the dustbin of history” unless he changed his approach.

It comes after Sir Keir blamed a “vaccine bounce” for Labour losing ground to the Tories in recent opinion polls.

In an interview with LBC radio on Sunday Mr McCluskey, whose union donates large amounts of money to Labour, was highly critical of Sir Keir’s approach.

The Unite general secretary said the leader, who has been in place for around one year, had “missed the opportunities” during the coronavirus pandemic.
