Starmer claims having a political endorsement from Tony Blair is “very important, and very valuable.”

According to the Labour leader, it is “very important and very valuable” that he got an endorsement from Tony Blair because he won elections, something Labour doesn’t normally do.

If Keir Starmer was truly in touch with the British people, as he claims, he would be aware that the former Labour leader is widely despised as a result of the illegal war in Iraq.

The news presenter was right to say that this endorsement would not go down well with people.
