Starmer accepts donation from flammable cladding firm

New scandal as Star0mer declares free football tickets accepted from company forced to pay out £10.8m over combustible panels

Keir Starmer’s willingness to accept corporate hospitality has caused disgust after he declared a gift of free football tickets from a company that was forced to pay out almost £11 million in the wake of the Grenfell Tower catastrophe.

Mulalley and Co Limited lost a legal case brought against them by a construction firm over dangerous cladding of a type similar to the material that caused 72 deaths in the Grenfell disaster.

Starmer frequently accepts corporate hospitality and donations – and was seen grinning while enjoying free seats at the European football championship final.

Starmer and his health spokesman Wes Streeting also accepted sizeable sums from a private health investor and have spoken about their plan to use more private healthcare in the NHS, but accepting hospitality from a firm selling dangerous cladding is a new low.
