Labour leader Starmer says he will choose Davos over Westminster

Sir Keir Starmer, the leader of the opposition Labour Party and the odds-on favourite to become the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, has admitted that he prefers Davos to Westminster.

While Prime Minister Rishi Sunak skipped the World Economic Forum’s annual globalist gathering in Davos, his potential successor, left-wing Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, and shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves, made the case for an even more globalist government in Westminster.

Starmer told former BBC journalist Emily Maitlis at the conference that he prefers Davos to Westminster, saying that the seat of power in London is “too constrained”.

“It’s closed and we are not having meaning… once you get out of Westminster, whether it’s Davos or anywhere else, you actually engage with people that you can see working with in the future. Westminster is just a tribal, shouting place,” the Labour leader said.

“The mask has slipped,” Brexit leader Nigel Farage said in response to the statement.

“Keir Starmer is a full-fledged globalist who spends his time at the World Economic Forum.”

Starmer also chastised Prime Minister Sunak, who has a relationship with the World Economic Forum, for failing to attend the meeting this year, despite sending Business Secretary Grant Shapps in his place.

“I think our prime minister should have showed up — I absolutely do. One of the things that has been impressed on me since I’ve been here is the absence of the United Kingdom,” he said.

“That’s why I think it’s really important that I’m here and that our Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves is here, as a statement of intent that should there be a change of government, and I hope there will be, the United Kingdom will play its part on the global stage in a way I think it probably hasn’t in recent years.”
