·1-min read

Sir Keir Starmer said Liz Truss was “not on the side of the working people after being elected as the new Conservative party leader.

Starmer’s criticism comes after the foreign secretary was appointed on Monday 5 September as Tory leader, beating former chancellor Rishi Sunak and on route to becoming the next prime minister of the UK.
