The leader of the British Labour Party, Sir Keir Stammer, was ordered by a pub owner, Rod Humphris, to leave his pub because the politician supported the Covid-19 lockdown.
Many restaurants, bars and pubs in the UK have lost a lot of money due to the lockdown and the angry owner blamed politicians, including Sir Keir, for the financial crisis that their owners have faced.
The video begins with Sir Keir’s bodyguard trying to restrain the owner while he shouted, “That man is not allowed in my pub!” Mr Humphris also accused the bodyguard of assaulting him. He shouted that Sir Stammer should, “Get out of my pub”.
The Labour leader was on a campaign walkabout in the area when the incident happened.
The party leader was turfed out of The Raven after trying to enter during a campaigning walkabout in the city centre.
Landlord Rod Humphris appeared to be held back by bodyguards during the incident as he yelled: “That man is not allowed in my pub.”
Sir Keir, wearing a black face mask, rushed out of the door a few seconds later and scarpered off down the street.
The incident was caught on camera by reporters following the Labour leader.
During a street confrontation Mr Humphris, who says he has been “a Labour voter my entire life”, can be heard saying he’s “incandescent” with Sir Keir’s performance.
He tells him: “You have failed this country, you have seriously failed.”
In video of the incident the pub landlord hands Sir Keir with a graph which he says shows that “the last time we had this much death was 2008”.
He tells the Labour leader: “Do you understand we have f***** our economy because old people are dying?
“You have failed to be the opposition, you have failed to ask whether lockdown was functioning.
“Thousands of people have died because you have failed to do your job and ask the real questions.
“You have allowed our children to wear masks in schools when there’s never been any evidence for it.”
