Starmer promises to resign if he’s fined over ‘beergate’

Political Editor

Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer has said he will step down if the police fine him for breaking covid lockdown rules.

He portrayed himself as someone who always follows the rules – and said that made him very different to Boris Johnson.
