LABOUR CABINET RESHUFFLE: Sir Keir Starmer sacks Shadow Chancellor after election defeat

LABOUR CABINET RESHUFFLE: Sir Keir Starmer sacks Shadow Chancellor after election defeat

Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer has reshuffled his shadow cabinet following disappointing council election results across England.

Anneliese Dodds has been sacked as Shadow Chancellor and replaced by Rachel Reeves, whilst Deputy Leader Angela Rayner becomes Shadow to Michael Gove in the Cabinet Office.

In a statement, Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer said:

“The Labour Party must be the party that embraces the demand for change across our country. That will require bold ideas and a relentless focus on the priorities of the British people. Just as the pandemic has changed what is possible and what is necessary, so Labour must change too.

“In the last 24 hours we have seen fantastic results for Labour Metro Mayors, as well as the Labour government in Wales under Mark Drakeford. They have shown the difference Labour can make in power, standing up for their communities.

“We have seen Labour begin to turn around its fortunes in Scotland under the leadership of Anas Sarwar. These results give us optimism and inspiration for the future. The challenge for us now is to build upon these successes and learn from the places we lost.

“I look forward to working with our refreshed and renewed team to take on that challenge, deliver that change and build the ambitious programme that will deliver the next Labour government.”

The new-look Shadow Cabinet met today, with 33 members of it, up from 27 before the reshuffle. There are 23 cabinet ministers in Boris Johnson’s top team, plus a further four who attend meetings.
