UK politics – live: Sir Keir Starmer to unveil Labour’s 6 pledges in major election campaign pitch to voters

Sir Keir Starmer is set to launch Labour’s pitch to voters ahead of the general election, unveiling a set of six steps for government.

Speaking from Essex this morning, he will be joined by deputy leader Angela Rayner and Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves.

He will vow to deliver economic stability, cut NHS waiting times, create a new Border Security Command to end criminal boat gangs, and a publicly owned energy provider, to be called Great British Energy.

In a strategy similar to New Labour battle plan from 1997, he will also promise to tackle on antisocial behaviour, and he will announce the recruitment of 6,500 new teachers.

It comes as Rishi Sunak launched in his own keynote speech earlier this week where he criticised Labour for fighting based on “Starmer versus Sunak”.

But Sir Keir is convinced that he wants it to be a personal battle between the two men around who is a better candidate to run the country.
