Keir Starmer welcomes 4 July election call

The Labour leader Keir Starmer welcomed the prime minister’s announcement that UK general elections will be held on the 4 July, at a press conference on Wednesday.

Starmer told reporters: ‘A vote for Labour is a vote for stability, economic and political, a politics that treads more lightly on all our lives. A vote to stop the chaos’.

“Our mission-driven government will restore pride and purpose in our country. On 4 July, we can make this a reality, together.

Labour’s missions are built on fulfilling our first duty: to protect our country – through economic stability, secure borders and strong defence.

Labour leader Keir Starmer tells the BBC his party is only making commitments they “know they can fulfil”.

Starmer says that, because of the government’s “economic damage”, he has to make “difficult choices”.

He also says he will carry out TV debates, but won’t commit to the Conservatives’ idea for weekly head-to-heads.

On the BBC Starmer asked about Diane Abbott.

Speaking first on the unity of the party he refers to “incredible support” among members, activists and voters for what the party is trying to achieve.

He references the party’s success in the local election results – specifically the mayoral elections and the Blackpool South by-election.

As he did earlier this morning, Starmer underlines that the Diane Abbott disciplinary process is one for the National Executive Committee.
