Gary Neville rules out bid to become Labour MP as he joins Keir Starmer on conference stage | Politics News

Former footballer Gary Neville has ruled out any future bid to become a Labour MP.

Appearing at the party’s conference in Liverpool on Monday, he said he has “no intention of going into politics” as he does not want to give up the businesses he co-owns or his work in football.

The Manchester United defender turned Sky Sports pundit added that he is “not going to be tempted” to stand in the upcoming by-election in West Lancashire.

The former England star confirmed he had joined the Labour Party back in January this year.

But speaking to broadcasters on Monday, he ruled out any further progression.

“It’s something that I’ve been asked regularly over the last 12 to 18 months,” he said.

“I’ve got no intention of going into politics at all because the reality is I love what I do so much.

“I love what I do in football. I love what I do in the in Greater Manchester with the businesses that I co-own.

“And I have to say that I wouldn’t want to give that up. I feel as though I’m happy in what I’m doing.

“I want to continue to do the things that I’m doing locally in Greater Manchester. I have to say that I feel politically motivated, but I can do as much, I think, for the Labour Party being here today as I can do being an MP.”

‘Get behind Keir Starmer’

In a later conversation on the main conference stage with Keir Starmer and shadow culture secretary Lucy Powell, Neville urged delegates to “get behind” the Labour leader as he is a “serious politician”.

Asked what advice he would give the party to put it on the path to victory, he said: “Remain laser-focused and aligned behind a single goal – which is to remove this Conservative government and put everything else aside and focus on that alone.”

He added: “Not only is this current government damaging us in our country, our relationships with our partners in Europe and around the world are broken and shattered.

“We need to rebuild our reputation and that is not going to happen under a Conservative government.”

Asked for his view on Liz Truss, Neville said: “She has tanked the pound lower than my reputation in Liverpool.”

Entering the stage, he had joked: “Usually when I see reds in Liverpool I’m in big trouble. It is the best reception I have ever had here.”

The streets of London were packed with thousands of mourners who turned out to watch as the Queen’s coffin was taken to Westminster Hall in a procession led by the King, his siblings and his sons.

The carriage carrying the Queen’s oak coffin left Buckingham Palace at 2.22pm.

Union flags waved above the crowds, who were packed in behind temporary barriers.

The procession was just over a mile long and took in two of London’s most famous thoroughfares, The Mall and Whitehall.

Some people could be seen wiping away tears as the Queen’s coffin made its way along the route.

Stormzy joins protesters demanding justice for Chris Kaba | UK News

Stormzy has joined protestors in support of the family of Chris Kaba, who was shot dead by armed Metropolitan Police officers in south London.

A march took place through London on Saturday over the death of Mr Kaba, with crowds gathering outside Scotland Yard demanding justice for the 24-year-old.

Mr Kaba, who was due to become a father, died in hospital in the early hours of Tuesday after being shot following a chase with police on Monday night in Streatham Hill.

Vossi Bop singer Stormzy, 29, spoke at the march, saying: “Chris has a mother, he has a family, he has brothers, he has friends, people who knew him in real life, who for them, it’s unbearable.”

He said there was no way to “sugar coat” what had happened to Mr Kaba and urged them to “have stamina” in their efforts to raise awareness of his death and the events surrounding it.

“Everyone here today, I would encourage everyone to have stamina,” he said.

“And I know it’s a very difficult thing to say… But when these people do these things, they get away with it, because what happens is we do this once, we get tired, we tweet, we get tired, we do it for a week, we do it for two weeks, we do it for a month, and they know we get tired.”

“What they’ve done is they’ve killed someone. We can’t sugar coat it,” he added.

Hackney Labour MP Diane Abbott and Streatham Labour MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy were also at the event in the capital, which saw supporters in the crowd carrying signs saying “Justice for Chris Kaba” and “Black Lives Matter”.

Calls for officer to be immediately suspended

Mr Kaba’s car was stopped, the Met said, following the activation of an automatic number plate recognition camera, which indicated the car had been “linked to a firearms offence in the previous days”.

His family called for a murder investigation after it emerged no firearm was found on him.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has launched a homicide investigation into the incident.

Mr Kaba’s family have demanded the firearms officer involved be “immediately suspended” pending the result of the IOPC investigation.

Met Assistant Commissioner Amanda Pearson said on Friday the officer involved is not currently on operational duties and their work status will be carefully considered going forward.

She said the force was cooperating fully with the IOPC investigation.

‘He was so loved’

Kim Alleyne, whose daughter Karimah Waite was engaged to Mr Kaba and carrying his child, said the pair were due to marry early next year.

She said: “He was so loved. He was so funny. He was super kind.

“He’s got a baby on the way that he’s never going to see.”
