Who is Keir Starmer?

Keir Starmer has spent four years as opposition leader and steered Labour’s ideological stance from the far left towards the political middle ground. Throughout the campaign, his message to voters has been that a Labour government will bring change. That probably reassured voters sceptical of Labour.

Starmer, who served as prosecutor for England and Wales between 2008 to 2013, was described by his political opponents as a“lefty London lawyer,” AP reported.

He was knighted for his role leading the Crown Prosecution Service, and Conservative opponents made use of the title Sir Keir Starmer to portray him as elite and out of touch.

Keir Starmer’s humble background

Born in 1963, Keir Starmer comes from a modest background. His parents, a toolmaker and a nurse, named him after Keir Hardie, the inaugural leader of the Labour Party. Growing up as one of four siblings in a financially constrained household in a small town near London, according to AFP.

A passionate supporter of Arsenal, he enjoys catching Premier League games with a beer at his neighborhood pub. Starmer values his family’s privacy and has two teenage children with his wife, who works in occupational health for the National Health Service.
