The Tory deputy chairman said ‘it’s obvious’ that he and Angela Rayner dislike each other.
Keir Starmer has been branded “the Ken Barlow of politics” by Conservative Deputy Chairman Lee Anderson.
He was commenting on reports that the Labour leader and his deputy Angela Rayner do not see eye-to-eye.
In a discussion on GB News, he said: “You can see when you sit down on the green benches there is this, there’s an atmosphere between them.
“They don’t give each other eye contact, it’s quite obvious they don’t like each other. To be fair to Keir Starmer, even though he is boring, he is the Ken Barlow of politics, he’s this miserable so and so, but at least he’s got a little bit about him, that little bit of political intelligence.
“On the escalator at work he always says, ‘hello Lee, how are you?’ as we go by, but people like Angela and her side of the party, when they walk by in Parliament, they just turn their head that way and now they won’t talk to me now.”
He told Dan Wootton: “They all think I’m a turncoat but at least Sir Keir, he’s got that humility, a bit dignity about him but that wing of the party, that’s the argument, some of [the words] the Labour Party use most of the time are either racist, homophobic and transphobic.
“That’s all they’ve got to offer. They’ve got no answers to the economy. No answers to the migration problem. No one says anything. Everyone’s a racist.”
He added: “I was there when she used the scum word. I think she got caught as well at some fringe event at the Labour Conference using that word.
“It shows what she really thinks because when you use those words, it shows what you really think about people like me and the Conservative Party, my colleagues.”
