Labor remains ahead of the Conservative Party in the polls, with the party confident of regaining power at the next general election.
In a speech at the weekend, Sir Keir claimed his project to reform the party after the Corbyn era was a version “on steroids” of Sir Tony Blair’s symbolic rewrite of Volume Four.

Sir Keir told the newspaper that his party would “inherit very difficult circumstances” if it entered government.
He added: “That makes it even more important that we hit the ground running and restore that sense of hope that has been lost.”
Sir Keir said:People Can’t spend a day, a week or a month more out of it, they certainly can’t afford for Rishi Sunak to hold on to power for as long as he cares to do so.
“They need change and the sooner we are in a position to provide that change, the better.
“The longer they are in office, the more damage they will do.”
