In a stunning admission, the leader of the opposition Labour Party and the odds-on favourite to become the next prime minister of the United Kingdom, Sir Keir Starmer, said that he prefers Davos over Westminster.
While Prime Minister Rishi Sunak skipped the annual globalist gathering of the World Economic Forum in Davos, his potential successor, left-wing Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and his shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves made their way to the Swiss ski resort town to make the pitch for an even more globalist government in Westminster.
Remarkably, the potential future Prime Minister told former BBC journalist Emily Maitlis at the conference that he prefers Davos to Westminster, saying that the seat of power in London is “too constrained”.
“It’s closed and we are not having meaning… once you get out of Westminster, whether it’s Davos or anywhere else, you actually engage with people that you can see working with in the future. Westminster is just a tribal, shouting place,” the Labour leader said.
Responding to the statement, Brexit leader Nigel Farage said: “The mask has slipped. Keir Starmer is a full on globalist, hanging out with his mates at the WEF.”
Starmer also took aim at Prime Minister Sunak — who also has a relationship with the World Economic Forum — for failing to come to the meeting this year, though he did send Business Secretary Grant Shapps in his stead.
“I think our prime minister should have showed up — I absolutely do. One of the things that has been impressed on me since I’ve been here is the absence of the United Kingdom,” he said.
“That’s why I think it’s really important that I’m here and that our Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves is here, as a statement of intent that should there be a change of government, and I hope there will be, the United Kingdom will play its part on the global stage in a way I think it probably hasn’t in recent years.”
