Ash Sarkar clashed with a Labour MP as she ripped into Sir Keir Starmer over repeated U-turns.

The left-wing commentator stated “you can’t trust” the Labour chief to stay to insurance policies after he backtracked on pledges together with £28 billion of inexperienced spending.

Labour MP Sir Chris Bryant insisted Sir Keir was “pragmatic”, however Ms Sarkar hit again claiming it was a “nice way of saying liar”.

The fiery second got here as panellists on BBC Politics Live mentioned whether or not a Labour authorities would “make a difference”.

Ms Sarkar stated: “What Keir Starmer has shown is that he is willing to backtrack and scrap his pledges when he comes under even the most minuscule amount of pressure from the media.

“We noticed that when it got here to the £28 billion of inexperienced funding, that is now been watered right down to the purpose that a lot of it was already present funding.

“He’s backtracked on tuition fees, he will potentially backtrack on this new package of workers’ rights, coming under pressure from Peter Mandelson there.

“So what that exhibits is that, effectively sure there may be these particular person insurance policies, you’ll be able to’t belief him to maintain them.”

Sir Chris said: “He’s pragmatic, fairly proper too.”

But Ms Sarkar cut in: “That’s a pleasant method of claiming liar.”

The Rhondda MP replied: “No, it is not. We won’t do what Liz Truss did which is make huge, uncosted plans and crash the UK financial system.

“In relation to the £28 billion, completely right for us to change the policy because when we came up with the policy that was before Liz Truss crashed the economy, when borrowing was very cheap for government, now it’s very expensive.

“It could be completely irresponsible for the Labour Party to go ahead to a normal election making uncosted guarantees that do not add up.”
