Talk's Mike Graham is joined by chief political commentator at The Independent John Rentoul to analyse Keir Starmer's new pledges. Starmer will launch Labour’s doorstep offer to voters ahead of the general election, with a set of “first steps” for government. In a launch event at a potential electoral battleground in Essex, the Labour leader will set out his party’s offer, building on the missions for what it has branded a “decade of national renewal” should it win when voters go to the polls. Among its first steps “to change Britain” the opposition will aim to deliver economic stability, cut NHS waiting times, launch a new border security command, set up publicly-owned energy firm Great British Energy, crack down on antisocial behaviour and recruit 6,500 new teachers. The steps are aimed at providing “gimmick-free”, fully costed and funded pledges to the electorate that could be implemented within the five years a Parliament usually sits, and are expected to be foregrounded in campaigning material ahead of the general election.
