Sir Keir Starmer has vowed to stop as Labour chief if he loses the General Election.

Asked by BBC Radio 5 Live if he would resign as Labour chief if he misplaced the election, he replied: “Yes.”

But the prospect is unlikely with Labour sustaining its double-digit lead within the polls.

A survey by More In Common, carried out on-line from June 24-26 amongst 3,420 adults in Britain, places Sir Keir’s social gathering 17 factors forward of the Tories.

The figures are Labour 40%, Conservative 23%, Reform 14%, Liberal Democrats 11%, Green 5%, SNP 3% and different events 3%.

A ballot by Norstat, carried out on-line from June 24-26 amongst 2,025 adults in Britain, provides Labour a 16-point lead.

The figures are Labour 39%, Conservative 23%, Reform 15%, Lib Dems 12%, Green 6%, SNP 4%, Plaid Cymru 1% and different events 1%.

It comes as there may be lower than per week to go till the poll on July 4.

But Education Secretary Gillian Keegan this morning insisted there are “so many” undecided voters forward of polling day.

She informed GB News: “I think all of us are out every day knocking on doors, all of us are saying the same thing – I was talking to a colleague yesterday – there are so many voters who are undecided and, of course, what’s happening in the polls is everyone is trying to anticipate what they’ll do, there’s all kinds of algorithms trying to anticipate that, but what we’re doing is going out on the doorstep.

“What is obvious is many of those voters haven’t determined to go for an additional social gathering. Some have, however not many have, and that is what we’re discovering on the doorstep, so this final week is crucially vital, it’s best to by no means take the voters with no consideration, none of us ever do.”
