Columnist Polly Toynbee says Sir Keir Starmer would be the best Prime Minister since Tony Blair.

She made the remark while appearing as a panellist on LBC's Cross Question.

The Guardian columnist said: "We always look at all leaders of parties and wonder how they'll shape up to be Prime Minister.

"My own view is that if [Sir Keir Starmer] could get there, if he can get elected, he would be the best Prime Minister by far for many, many a long year, I would say.

"I'd say he'd be the best since Tony Blair."
