We haven’t had a ‘Sceptic of the Week’ for a while, but today is a good time to revive it following the decision by Rod Humphreys, landlord of The Raven in Bath, to throw Keir Starmer out of his pub this lunchtime because the Labour leader has done so little to oppose the lockdown policy. MailOnline has more.
Sir Keir Starmer was thrown out of a pub today after being confronted by a Labour-supporting landlord furious that he supported the lockdown which had closed his business for months.
In astonishing scenes in Bath today, Rod Humphris, the lockdown-sceptic landlord of the Raven, had to be held back by the Opposition Leader’s security guards as he demanded he leave.
The incident was captured on camera by reporters amid a visit to the city to support West of England metro mayoral candidate Dan Norris ahead of the forthcoming elections.
Mr Humphris had clashed with Sir Keir outside the Raven, accusing him of having ‘failed to be the opposition’ by supporting the lockdown and backing plans to make schoolchildren wear masks.
As the politician paused the landlord waved a piece of paper at him, saying: “Do you know what the average age of death with Covid is?
“According to the Office for National statistics it’s 82 years and three months. The average age of death normally? Eighty one years.
“Do you understand we have f***ed our economy because old people are dying?”
As Sir Keir tried to walk away he continued: “No, no I came here to speak to this man, not your security.
“You have failed me. I have been a Labour voter my entire life. You have failed to be the opposition.
“You have failed to ask whether lockdown was functioning. Do you understand? Thousands of people have died because you have failed to do your job and ask the real questions.”
Well done Mr Humphris. You speak for millions of lifelong Labour voters. Conservative MPs like Charles Walker, Desmond Swayne, Graham Brady, Iain Duncan Smith and Steve Baker are far more deserving of the title “Leader of the Opposition” than Keir Starmer.
