Sir Keir Starmer is being warned he must rule out the introduction of gender self-identification or risk losing the next general election.
The Labour leader this week hinted at a changed stance in his approach to the issue following the fierce row over the SNP‘s gender identity reforms.
He stressed a need for public support before a change to transgender laws and suggested there should be a ‘reset of the situation’ in Scotland.
Sir Keir is reportedly being urged from within Labour ranks to make his position ‘clearer’ after he previously committed to introducing self-ID for trans people.
According to The Times, party strategists have told him that he must make clear ‘self-ID is not going to happen’ or he will lose the election ‘on day one’.
