KEIR Starmer was left red -faced at his big speech in Brighton on Wednesday as a former reality TV star who carved out the head of Labor.
Big Brother 8’s Carol Vincent headed to the conference floor to take over the Labor leader while making Labour’s pitch to Britain.
The chants of “shame” and came as Labor refused to support a £ 15 minimum wage.
Critics held up red cards in protest but the Labor leader came back and asked if the detractors were “shouting slogans, or changing lives”.
He said: “At this time on a Wednesday it’s usually the Tories who are harassing me, it wasn’t harassing me then, and it’s not harassing me now.”
And he was greeted with applause as he challenged the hecklers.
Party activist Carole Vincent, from Leyton and Wanstead constituencies in east London, said she hoped to be thrown out of the party for hecking the leader – and added that she did not expect Sir Keir to live in office until at the next conference.
He told Politicalite: “I don’t consider it, I consider I stood up and spoke because it had to be said.”
“He ignored – and this conference ignored – the people who stood up and demanded that he guarantee a 15% increase for the NHS, a £ 15 minimum wage.”
“You can’t live in a lot of major cities – not just London but other cities – on the wages that people get.”
He said Sir Keir had 10 promises during his leadership campaign but said he had “turned away from most of them”.
He added: “He talked about party merging. The party has never been divided so far and is getting worse.”
“I was probably fired and that’s sad because I’m working so hard for this party.”
Ms Vincent said that “he showed her the red card when he said something that I think is unacceptable and he should really challenge the Government, or say how he would do something”.
Asked if he thinks Sir Keir will be the leader at the next conference, he said: “No. I think there will be a challenge at some point, I’m not sure who will do it.”
Some of the most generous applause came when he highlighted the gains under Tony Blair’s Labor government.
Supporters made a straightforward offering when Sir Keir offered the Tories “a lesson in leveling up” by criticizing his own party’s record on introducing a minimum wage, boosting education and of the NHS.
“You want to level up? That has leveled up, ”the leader said after the record of the last Labor government was recorded.
Having made changes to party rules designed to prevent a more radical MP becoming head of Labor, Sir Keir blasted Mr Corbyn’s note as head of Labor without naming his predecessor.
“To voters who thought we were unpatriotic or irresponsible or that we mined them, I say these simple but powerful words,” Sir Keir said.
“We will never under my leadership go to an election with a manifesto that is not a serious plan for the government.”
