Keir Starmer has declared in his New Year message released today that “our best years are still to come” and “there are reasons to be optimistic” as vaccines are distributed to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.
“Optimistic at the distribution of the vaccine. Optimistic that we will once again hold loved ones and have our freedom. That our economy can start growing. Businesses can start trading,” the Labour leader said.
“I believe this can once again be the best country to grow up in and the best country to grow old in. And with that hope and that vision, I believe that our best years are still to come.”
“So, wherever you are, however you are spending this season, on behalf of the Labour Party, I wish you a happy new year.”
