Landlord Grapples With Security Guards After Kicking Keir Starmer Out Of Pub

This is the moment Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was told to leave a Bath pub by its landlord, while on a walkabout in the city:

The landlord shouted 'that man is not allowed in my pub' and 'get out of my pub' as the politician, wearing a black face mask, walked out of the door, with the incident caught on camera by reporters.

Rod Humphris, landlord of the Raven pub, which is located in the centre of Bath, appeared to be held back by security guards during the incident with Sir Keir Starmer.

On why he kicked the Labour leader out of the pub, the 54-year-old explained: "I had heard that the Labour Party were coming round and he turned up and I told him what I thought of him, basically.

"I think he has utterly failed us as the leader of the Opposition, he has completely failed to ask the questions that needed asking, like, why did we throw away our previous pandemic preparedness?

"Why have we just accepted lockdown? Why have we just accepted the loss of all our freedoms?"

Mr Humphris continued: "He walked into my pub without asking and I threw him out. Or at least, I did my best to throw him out - his security got in the way."

Sir Keir left the pub following the confrontation, accompanied by members of his team.

The landlord said he gave Sir Keir a 'piece of my mind', adding: "I would say this to any politician - it's not a partisan matter."

The walkabout in Bath is to support West of England metro mayoral candidate Dan Norris, and to mark Labour's launch of an independent commission to rebuild Britain's high streets.

In a tweet earlier today, Starmer wrote: "Britain's high streets are at the heart of our communities. But over the last decade we have lost thousands upon thousands of shops, pubs, bank branches and libraries.

"That's why today Labour is launching a new commission to rebuild our high streets."

Labour's Shadow Chancellor Anneliese Dodds said the party's six-month plan promises 'a bright future for our high streets'.

She said: "We need to act now to rebuild Britain's high streets, to give our children and grandchildren safe spaces to enjoy, and restore pride in our town centres."
