Keir Starmer: The New Man in Labour

University of Leeds alumnus Keir Starmer was elected on Saturday as the new leader of the Labour Party. As a result, the five-year reign of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party is over.

At the end of Corbyn’s leadership, he has left a somewhat difficult legacy for Labour, with the anti-Semitism crisis still rumbling, Momentum monopolising power in the party and two failed elections, the last of which saw Labour lose 59 constituencies and its worst defeat since the 1930’s.
