Keir Starmer’s woes continue to mount as closest parliamentary aide resigns

Labour leader Keir Starmer’s woes continue to mount after his closest parliamentary aide suddenly resigned.

Carolyn Harris, who had served as Sir Keir’s Starmer’s parliamentary private secretary since he became leader last year, has left the role.

It marks the continuation of a torrid weekend for the Labour leader, who carried out a strained reshuffle of his top team after the party’s defeat in the Hartlepool by-election last week.

A mixed bag of results in elections across the UK on ‘super Thursday’ also led to an onslaught of criticism, much of it aimed at the leader, from multiple wings of the party.

In the job Ms Harris was supposed to act as Sir Keir’s ‘eyes and ears’ with other Labour MPs.

But relations are understood to be strained.

Some accuse Ms Harris of acting as a “cheerleader” for Sir Keir, rather than reflecting back the concerns of Labour MPs to the leadership.
