Keir Starmer – 2021 Comments on Visit to Peace Bridge in Derry/Londonderry

The comments made by Keir Starmer, the Leader of the Opposition, on 9 July 2021.

Lyra McKee was the very best of Northern Ireland. She dreamt of a future of equality and reconciliation.

Lyra’s partner, Sara Canning has fought a determined campaign for justice. Her determination to build on Lyra’s legacy, and to build a lasting peace, is humbling and demands all our support.

I was honoured to cross the Peace Bridge, a symbol of reconciliation between two communities, with Sara.
