Keir Starmer has vowed to quit if fined over beergate, contrary to Boris Johnson’s refusal to go after law-breaking, according to the Daily Mirror. Labour leader insists he did not break any rules, but says: “I will do the right thing and step down.”
In a packed legislative programme of 38 bills, Boris Johnson will outline a raft of new policies to reshape Britain for all, including proposals for cutting red tape for businesses, removing remaining EU regulations, and increasing skills and training.
Sir Keir Starmer has been accused of placing “deeply inappropriate” pressure on authorities investigating beergate after he said he would resign if Durham Constabulary fined him for his lockdown beer with aides. Opponents said this placed detectives in the difficult position of knowing their decisions could ‘decapitate’ the opposition, reports the Daily Mail.
