Report: Starmer sacks Labour Party chair

Leader of the British Opposition Sir Keir Starmer has fired Labour Party Chair and Deputy Leader Angela Rayner, Sky News reported on Saturday.

"Trying to blame Angela for the failures of this campaign which were entirely run by Keir's office, and that Keir has himself said he will take responsibility for, is as absurd as it is ridiculous," sources told the television.

The report comes as Labour has achieved worse-than-expected results in the United Kingdom's local elections, which took place on May 6. As per the current count, the party has failed to win an overall majority in any of England's county councils. However, it managed to achieve so in the Welsh parliament.
