Labour leader, Sir Keir Starmer, will host the latest of his ‘Call Keir’ virtual public meetings in Wolverhampton this afternoon.
The politician, who has been at the helm of the party since April, will take questions directly from the public in one of a series of virtual meetings which cover every region and nation of the UK.
The hour-long conversation will take place over Zoom, with Peter Madeley, Political Editor of the Express & Star, chairing. Members of the public will have the chance to ask questions directly to the Labour Leader about Coronavirus, the issues they would like to see raised with the Government and what lessons Labour needs to learn from last year’s election defeat.
People will be asked to register to attend, but everyone is invited to join the meeting - including non-Labour Party members and voters.
The events follow a series of virtual meetings the Labour Leader has held since being elected, including with key workers, small businesses and representatives of the BAME community. Keir Starmer MP, Leader of the Labour Party, said:
“Voters in Wolverhampton and across the Black Country sent a sobering message to the Labour Party in December. I want to hear directly from those voters we lost and I am determined to win back their trust.
“I also want to hear people's views about the government's handling of coronavirus. After a week or more of mismanagement, I’m deeply concerned the Prime Minister has made a difficult situation 10 times worse.”
