What now for new Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer?

UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 06 APRIL 2020

Centre for Brexit Studies Director Professor Alex de Ruyter has shared his thoughts and views around coronavirus (COVID-19) and what will happen if Prime Minister Boris Johnson is no longer able to work throughout his stay in hospital.

In a video shared today, the expert also discussed the new leader of the Labour Party Sir Keir Starmer, and what challenges lie ahead for him within the next few weeks. Can we expect for him to work alongside the Conservative Party during this crisis, or will he criticise the government instead?

Sir Keir Starmer has also announced his new shadow cabinet, with Lisa Nandy being appointed shadow foreign secretary. Professor de Ruyter discusses what we can expect from his cabinet and is this a new start for the party, away from Jeremy Corbyn.
