After months of posturing over Partygate, Keir Starmer's own lockdown-defying antics have come under the microscope. Durham Constabulary are reported to be considering a request from Tory MP Richard Holden to investigate an event in which the Labour leader was filmed drinking with local campaigners in April 2021. The police force had previously stated its belief that no lockdown rules had been broken.
There has been no word of the latest developments on the BBC or other broadcast media, with the exception - of course - of GB News. Tom Harwood spoke to Richard Holden about his request to Durham Constabulary (see below).
If police proceed with an investigation it will be an acute embarrassment to a man who has repeatedly implored the Prime Minister to resign over lockdown parties. The chickens are coming home Sir Keir.
