Sir Keir Starmer said Rishi Sunak "lacks the backbone" to call out "Islamophobia" after Lee Anderson’s attack on Sadiq Khan. Speaking during a visit to Shrewsbury, the Labour leader said: "I think this is straightforward. It’s Islamophobia and the Prime Minister should call it out for what it is...
