    It’s been a tough few weeks for Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, as the vaccine rollout gives Boris Johnson a boost in opinion polls.

Today he set out his Labour vision for a post-Covid Britain.

    We sat down with Sir Keir Starmer at Labour headquarters, and began by asking him if after all the recent criticism this speech was a relaunch.
