Or was Stammer just waiting for his moment, head down, powder dry and mouth shut waiting for the others to trip over their shoe laces?From Wiki:
Starmer married Victoria Alexander in 2007. She was previously a solicitor but now works in NHS occupational health. The couple's son and daughter are being brought up in the Jewish faith of their mother and the family attend shabbat dinners.
So as a member of the Shadow Cabinet from 2015, (and being married to a Jewish woman), Starmer was utterly oblivious to the more unpleasant goings-on of his party & leader, but is now accepting the report without question or qualification & is wearing a hair shirt and 'acting tough'.
