VOTERS are not yet convinced about Sir Keir Starmer, Labour veteran Lord Blunkett warned.
The former education chief claimed he was lucky to emerge after the chaos of Jeremy Corbyn.

He said: “People are not yet totally convinced.
“And we’ve got to convince them in the next year.
“Keir has been fortunate.
“He’s been able to contrast himself against what came before.”
Lord Blunkett also expressed reservations that the shadow cabinet had not yet set out the details of their policies to the electorate.
He said the “five missions” recently announced were a “start”.
But he added: “We’ve got to establish that this will be a government that works with people.”
