Keir Starmer has claimed the final election is a vote between “two different countries, two different futures” as he scrambled to get his marketing campaign up and working.

The Labour chief kicked off his bid to be the subsequent prime minister at Gillingham Football Club, flanked by supporters and deputy chief Angela Rayner.

Setting out his pitch to voters, Sir Keir mentioned: “This election is about a choice: Two different countries, two different futures.

“Decline and chaos continuing under the Tories, or rebuilding our country under Labour.

“The power of the vote is with you. If you want change, you have to vote for it.

“And if you vote Labour, it is a vote to stop the chaos, it is a vote to turn the page and it is a vote to rebuild our country together.”

The selection of location will likely be seen as laying down a marker for Labour expectations within the election.

Gillingham and Rainham was created in 2005 and has all the time voted Tory, although its predecessor seat of Gillingham was held by Labour.

The boundaries of the constituency are altering on this election.

Mr Starmer joked that the final time his celebration was in energy, Gillingham Football membership had been in the identical division as present Premier League giants Manchester City.

Conservative Party chairman Richard Holden responded to Sir Keir’s marketing campaign speech accusing the opposition chief of not having a plan.

Mr Holden mentioned: “Sir Keir Starmer does not have the conviction, courage or plan that Britain needs to secure a brighter future in a more uncertain world.

“Starmer has a track record of lacking the courage and strength to stick to his guns and that means you cannot trust him not to increase your taxes, raid your pension or burden your children with extra borrowing.

“The choice is clear: stick with the plan by choosing bold action for a safer, more secure and more prosperous future with Rishi Sunak, or go back to square one with Keir Starmer and the same old Labour.”
