Keir's father was a toolmaker, his mother was a nurse, he went to Leeds University and was knighted in 2014 for "services to law and criminal justice". Yes - he certainly is "one of us". A talented successful man who has not forgotten his roots.

His parents are definitely, "one of us".

Anyone doing just a bit of research will find that the "Sir" went with his previous job, like some managers might get a company phone or a sales rep get a company car. It is reported he, like many people, shuns titles or letters and prefers to be called "Keir Starmer". Unlike Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, he didn't have a privliged education at Eton College and Oxford. Instead of reading Classics at Balliol College, Oxford, he studied for a real profession - law. Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson has told lies when writing for The Times, and made up stuff about europe. As a barrister, Keir worked on human rights issues, and the McLibel case. For free. I don't remember Keir standing in front of a bus making up numbers that could go to the NHS. Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson - “We’re upgrading 20 hospitals and building 40 new ones." - Lie.

kthe5, yet again you're off track with your blurb, nothing to do with Boris, it's about the two councillors opinions. You really must try harder.
