Commenting on Keir Starmer’s speech to the Labour Party conference in Liverpool today (Tuesday), UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said:
“This was an inspiring speech from a leader who understands the chronic challenges facing the UK.
“After 13 years of dreadful government decision-making, Keir outlined a costed, rigorous and serious plan to get the country back on its feet.
“This offered hope for a future where the government will serve in the interests of working people and their families.
“Hospitals, schools, police forces, universities, town halls and the workers who run them know public services will be in safe hands under a Labour government. With Keir as prime minister, Britain will get its future back.”
