What do Keir Starmer’s frontbench picks mean for Labour’s future?
The Labour leader’s top team offers some clues as to how he might run his party, Jon Stone writes
Fresh from unveiling his top shadow cabinet, Keir Starmer has confirmed which Labour MPs will be serving on his frontbench as shadow ministers.
These more junior appointments may not be as high profile as his top table, but they’re important for understanding how Labour’s new leader might run his party.
There are certainly MPs drawn from all over the party on the front benches. The shadow treasury team, for instance, includes Dan Carden, from its left wing, alongside Pat McFadden – Tony Blair’s former political secretary.
