What links EVERY single member of Starmer’s shadow cabinet? (The answer will enrage you!)

LABOUR leader Sir Keir Starmer has come under fire for stuffing his reshuffled shadow cabinet SOLELY with MPs who voted Remain in the 2016 Brexit referendum.

Tory activist Rowan Powell questioned the diversity of the opposition front bench in post on social media. His tweet listed the names of Sir Keir’s newly-appointed top team and pointed out that not a single member had voted to leave the European Union

And he asked: “Have they learnt anything?”

Brexit supporters were quick to respond on Twitter.


Tom Gill said: “Good news is they’ll Remain in opposition for the forseeable future.”

A twitter used called Phil posted: “Have they learnt anything? Yes. How to remain in opposition.”

Karen said: “Great shadow cabinet that – guaranteed the Tories a win at the next election.”

And another Twitter user posted: “Looks like they haven’t learned a single thing!

“They are absolutely useless jokers, where you can’t do anything but laugh at them!”

After selecting his frontbench, Sir Keir said: “I’m proud to have appointed a Shadow Cabinet that showcases the breadth, depth and talents of the Labour Party.

“This is a new team that will be relentlessly focused on acting in the national interest to respond to the coronavirus pandemic and rebuilding Labour so that it can win the next election.”

The reshuffe saw Ed Miliband, who was replaced by Jeremy Corbyn as party leader in the wake of his 2015 general election defeat, return to the Labour frontbench as the new shadow business secretary.

His predecessor in the role, Rebecca Long-Bailey, has been moved to education and joins fellow leadership rivals Lisa Nandy and Emily Thornberry in Sir Keir’s top team.

David Lammy, a leading voice against the Windrush scandal who practised as a barrister, was named as shadow justice secretary.

The moves will be seen as an attempt to unite a fractured party, bringing back some names from the party’s recent past while holding onto some who excelled under Mr Corbyn.
