Keir Starmer has successfully blocked his predecessor, Jeremy Corbyn, from running as a Labour candidate in the next election. Corbyn, a veteran left-wing politician, has represented Islington North as an MP for 40 years, but also led Labour during their overwhelming defeat in the 2019 general election. The move signals Labour’s shift from the hard left toward the centre-left, and has been criticised by Corbyn’s supporters.
