Heir to Blair? Keir Starmer’s 6 major commitments noted – POLITICO

With promises of stronger neighborhood policing, new penalties for offenders and a network of youth centers, Starmer is pledging to crack down on anti-social behavior, a buzzword of the last Labor government and something party leaders believe they are making a tangible difference in the lives of voters.

In terms of policy, Labor has already promised to deploy an additional 13,000 police and community support officers (PCSOs) to the streets in a bid to crack down on anti-social behaviour. This was accompanied by a commitment “to ensure that local people are involved in setting local policing priorities”.

Starmer has tried to follow Blair in promising to be tough on crime, and his team believes his past life as director of public prosecutions gives him the space to take this area from the Tories. But this particular pledge is ill-defined and has no clear objective – meaning Labor will likely claim victory across any number of measures it chooses to use in five years to evaluate the pledge .

Difficulty rating: 1/5 …in Labor’s vague terms.

6. Recruit 6,500 new teachers

Education, education, education is another Tony B favorite.

The issue didn’t really feature high on Starmer’s pledge card – but the Labor leader did include a very specific promise to recruit 6,500 new teachers in “key subjects to prepare children for life , at work and in the future. The party said it would fund the plan by ending tax breaks for private schools, which the Institute for Fiscal Studies think tank estimates would raise just over £1.7 billion sterling per year.
