While speaking on GB News, former London Mayor Ken Livingstone reflected on both the Labour and Conservative Party conferences. He said that he felt Tory leader Boris Johnson’s speech lacked detail as to where the country was going while he agreed with everything said by Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer. He went on to say that Keir Starmer would be the best Prime Minister in decades.
However, following these comments, many Twitter uses took to mocking Mr Livingstone for his comments.
Mr Livingston said: “I thought the Labour Party conference went really well.
“I watched Keir Starmer’s hour and a half speech, I agree with everything he said in it.
“He was focussed on what we do for our country.

“I think, I have no doubt about this, Keir Starmer will be our best Prime Minister for decades.
“Perhaps the best since Clement Attlee back in 1945.”
Many watchers took to Twitter to mock and ridicule Mr Livingstone for his support of Sir Keir.
