Labour wins general election…..

Well, congratulations to the Labour Party and the UK’s new Prime Minister, Keir Starmer.

Way back in January 2020, I photographed Keir when he came to Manchester to launch his Labour leadership campaign.

I spent most of the day with him and seeing him close up and fairly personal, I liked him. I’ve met hundreds of politicians during my 30+ year press career and I can’t say the same for most of them!

In general, most Labour politicians I’ve met are decent hard working people and are in it for the right reasons. I’m not really in to politics but I suspect the country is in good hands – but only time will tell.
