Keir Starmer admits that now is “not a time for party politics” after Reading attacks

Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer said this is “not a time for party politics” and that he is willing to work with the Government to see if there are “lessons that can be learned” following the Reading terror attack.

He said: “It’s horrific that it happened at all wherever it happened, and across Reading, across the country there will be communities really upset and worried about this, united in their grief.

“And all of our thoughts are with those who have lost someone in this.”

He added: “It’s very important that the investigation runs its course but I will want to work with the Government in response to this, to look at whether there’s lessons that can be learned, whether there need to be changes to the law.

“But I think as a constructive opposition, I will want to speak to the Prime Minister to discuss how together, we can improve the response, learn from this.

“The investigation must be completed, but of course, this is not a time for party politics.”
