Stand f irm, Sir Keir


SIR Keir Starmer believes in a great many things but consistenc­y does not appear to be among them. When he says, ‘I believe in the Union’, it sounds like a firm commitment to the continued existence of the United Kingdom.

Yet reports say Labour is poised to embrace ‘Devo Max’, which would reduce the UK to nothing more than a defence and foreign policy partnershi­p.

If Sir Keir believes in the Union, he must reject a constituti­onal position that is independen­ce-lite.

For his part, Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar should insist on it.
