BRITAIN’S opposition Labour Party leader Keir Starmer will offer to resign if he is found by police to have broken Covid rules at a gathering last year, Sky News reported on Monday (9) without citing sources.
The 59-year-old, who previously served as the country’s top prosecutor, has led calls for prime minister Boris Johnson and chancellor Rishi Sunak to resign after they both received fines relating to a birthday party celebration thrown for Johnson by staff in his Downing Street office in June 2020.
Starmer was then dealt a blow last week when British police said they would investigate him over a potential breach of Covid-19 lockdown rules in 2021 after receiving significant new information.
Footage from April 2021 shows him drinking a bottle of beer with colleagues indoors during a visit to the northeast of England. He has previously denied any rules were broken at what he has called a meal during a work event.
