Keir Starmer – 2020 Comments on Death of John Hume

The comments made by Keir Starmer, the Leader of the Opposition, on 3 August 2020.

It is deeply saddening to hear of the death of John Hume.

Life across the island of Ireland is peaceful and more prosperous today because of his courage, vision and determination. He guided away from violence and towards justice, tolerance and democracy. He takes his rightful place in the pantheon of leaders whose legacy is of creating a better world for the next generation.

My thoughts, and those of the Labour movement, are with Pat, John, Mo and the Hume Family.
