LAUGHABLE – Labour MP compares the leadership of Keir Starmer to that of Gareth Southgate.

LABOUR MP Dame Margaret Beckett had a ding dong with Political Editor Moya Lothian–Mclean as Beckett defended Sir Keir’s leadership, even comparing Starmer to England manager Gareth Southgate.


The journalist suggested that many voters were abandoning Sir Keir Starmer, and eventually, the Labour Party as they didn’t understand the party’s values.

Dame Margaret Beckett and Gal-Dem Political Edit Moya Lothian-Mclean faced off. Ms Lothian Mclean’s views were called “fantasy politics” by Dame Beckett, who criticized the pair for their inability to understand Sir Keir.

The argument went horribly wrong when Dame Beckett compared Sir Keir and Gareth Southgate, which many of the BBC panel members laughed at.
