As a potential Prime Minister, Keir Starmer is deserving of a biography that explores his life, achievements, and blemishes.
Although Lord Ashcroft’s subject matter may not be hugely interesting, readers are provided with a decent timeline of events in Starmer’s life that consists of interviews and descriptions.
However, Ashcroft’s book is riddled with ironies. Unsurprisingly, judgements are harsh, but his critique of Starmer as a nit-picker is hypocritical as Red Knight is littered with bizarre allegations and extreme judgements with little referencing.
Ashcroft appears to criticise Starmer for being a politician, questioning his lust for power and determination. The Tory donor should look in the mirror.
