Knowing what we now know about Starmer, Julian Assange’s current predicament, initiated by Starmer, is entirely consistent with his protection of the State’s disposing of the rulebook when it suits it. I was led to seeing parallels with the current Conservative party (those in Government at the time of writing), where a break-away group, possibly with Johnson, Patel and others, possibly including Nigel Farage, created a new right-wing party. In response to Duggan demonstrators Starmer brought in 24 hour court sittings and encouraged the most extreme sentencing responses to the most trivial offences. One way in which Starmer dissembles is that he attempts to take credit for things that were ultimately forced upon him and turned out to be right such as the phone hacking cases. In these pages, the man comes across quite clearly as an authoritarian interested in power and fearful of decisions.

Colleagues noticed however that he found it difficult to make decisions without them being run by several people and preferably focus groups first – this is an aspect of his personality that hasn’t changed and why he never comments quickly on a changing political scene – not useful in the world of 24 hour news where the narrative moves so quickly and with even the most obvious cases of right and wrong he is incapable of offering commentary.The Bodley Head will publish in either autumn 2024 or early 2025, depending when the general election occurs. He worked at the human rights charity Liberty which subsequently grew to larger prominence under Shami Chakrabarti.

Mid-way through the book Ashcroft reveals that Starmer is a member of the secretive anti-democratic Trilaterals. The famous case of Ian Tomlinson was similar and caused huge controversy at the time – Tomlinson was attacked by PC Simon Harwood during the G20 protests in London (Tomlinson wasn’t even part of the demonstration) and died subsequently.Above all, this is a book that should be read by anyone who wants to understand how someone who has too often been underestimated or dismissed as dull, now intends to bring similar change to Britain.
