Get Out Of My Pub!

Sir Keir Starmer was forced out of a pub after being faced by a Labour-supporting landlord enraged that he supported the lockdown which had closed his business for months, and in surprising scenes in Bath, Rod Humphris, the lockdown sceptic proprietor of the Raven, had to be held back by the Opposition Leader’s security guards as he demanded he leave, yelling ‘that man isn’t allowed in my pub’ and ‘get out of my pub’.

The event was caught on camera by anchors amid a visit to the city to support West of England metro mayoral candidate Dan Norris ahead of the impending polls.

The bust-up comes as the Labour leader’s notoriety amongst electors has fallen to its most profound level and Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour grapples in the polls, amid a swell in support for Boris Johnson’s Conservatives, boosted by the vaccine rollout, with the Tories enjoying a 14 point poll lead.

Mr Humphris clashed with Sir Keir Starmer outside the Raven, blaming him for having failed to be the opposition by supporting the lockdown and backing plans to make schoolchildren wear masks.

And as the politician paused the landlord waved a piece of paper at him, saying: ‘Do you know what the average age of death with Covid is?

‘According to the Office for National Statistics, it’s 82 years and three months. The average age of death normally? Eighty-one years.

‘Do you understand we have f***ed our economy because old people are dying?’

As Sir Keir Starmer tried to walk away he continued: ‘ No, no I came here to speak to this man, not your security.

‘You have failed me. I have been a Labour voter my entire life. You have failed to be the opposition.

‘You have failed to ask whether lockdown was functioning. Do you understand? Thousands of people have died because you have failed to do your job and ask the real questions.’

Finally, Sir Keir Starmer stopped and confronted him, pointing out the work done by the NHS in the pandemic, including his wife Victoria, who’s a nurse.

He said that they’d been overwhelmed with cases, adding that they’ve been on the front line keeping people alive and that he didn’t need lectures from him about the pandemic, and he thanked him and asked if they should go inside.

This prompted the scenes in which Mr Humphris demanded the Labour leader leave the pub, but he really shouldn’t have wasted his breath because like the vast preponderance of Labour politicians and Conservatives alike, they couldn’t care less about the impact the last year has had on people and their businesses, but at least this landlord showed his opposition, more than Sir Keir Starmer ever did.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
