Whether Beecroft and Starmer worked together during Starmer’s tenure as Director of Public Prosecutions is not yet clear, but with Starmer on the rocks over the Batley and Spen by-election and Evans not yet confirmed in the role of general secretary by a Labour conference, it’s an interesting decision to join a sinking ship.
