Political commentator Tim Montgomerie insisted the public has already made their mind up about the Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer. While speaking on TalkRadio with Mike Graham the pair discussed Piers Morgan’s upcoming Life stories show episode focussing on Sir Keir. Mr Montgomerie highlighted he found Sir Keir hypocritical and insincere as the Labour leader.
He highlighted that Sir Keir had pitched himself as someone close to Jeremy Corbyn only to then attempt to oust him from the party when he became leader.
He noted the show was unlikely to shift the public opinions about Sir Keir or the Labour Party.
The image of being Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is a hard one to shake according to Mr Montgomerie.
Mr Graham said: “I don’t know if you will be watching, I will be out of a sense of duty rather than desire.
