Labour’s Plan For Power: Starmer’s Brexit Dilemma is the fourth episode of a special new i podcast series looking at what Sir Keir Starmer’s party would do differently if it wins the next election. Hosted by Paul Waugh, i‘s chief political commentator, this is a four-part series that also covers the economy, the NHS and the north-south divide.
David Lammy, the Shadow Foreign Secretary, tells us: “The European Union is our number one priority… because I believe that our future prosperity and security is predicated on good relationships with our European partners.”
But former Cabinet minister Ed Balls says Labour needs to be more vocal on its plans. “Right now, I think not talking about our relationship is a problem. And not talking about how that fits with Britain's place in the world is a problem.”
And polling expert Professor Sir John Curtice has a warning: “What the party does need to understand…is that if indeed it is elected into office by a predominantly pro-EU electorate, it's then got to think about how it's going to best keep that electorate.”
