Jeremy Corbyn ally Laura Pidcock was not impressed by Sir Keir Starmer’s one-and-a-half-hour-long speech at the Labour Party conference, bluntly saying it was a bit “long” when grilled by a BBC journalist. The NEC member said it was not Sir Keir’s moment and lamented that there was no “olive branch” offered to some members of his party who may still side with the hard-left policies of Jeremy Corbyn. She was then grilled about the heckling during his speech, including during a section where Sir Keir spoke about his deceased mother, to which Ms Pidcock said she did not experience that in the hall.
Ms Pidcock was immediately interviewed following the conclusion of the speech and appeared bored at the event.
She told the BBC: “It was long, wasn’t it?
“Look, he hasn’t been able to give a speech in front of people for a long time but I didn’t think that was his moment.
“I thought it was quite uninspiring, we thought there might be some olive branch to members of the party…
“I didn’t really hear many commitments in his speech and that’s disappointing because there is a crisis facing workers.”
Ms Pidcock also noted Angela Eagle was standing near her which she claimed was an attempt to intimidate her into saying something different.
