Sir Keir Starmer is “not fit to run a bath” after refusing to comment on the transgender debate.

That’s according to GB News’ Darren Grimes who has hit out at the Labour leader.

Debate has been rife after swimmer Lia Thomas became the first transgender woman to win an NCAA swimming title over a week ago.

Speaking on Twitter, Mr Grimes said: “Sir Keir Starmer can’t define a woman. He can’t even tell us if a woman has a penis.

“He’s not fit to run a bath, never mind the country.”

Mr Grimes’ comments come after Sir Keir said Labour will continue to “defend women’s rights” as it has done for a “long, long time”.

When asked whether a woman can have a penis, Sir Keir replied: “I don’t think we can conduct this debate. I don’t think discussing this issue in this way helps anyone in the long run.

“What I want to see is a reform of the law as it is, but I’m also an advocate of safe spaces for women.

“I want to have a discussion with anybody who genuinely wants to find a way through this."

He added in his conversation with LBC: “I do find that too many people, in my view, retreat or hold a position which is intolerant of others and that’s not picking on any individual at all. But I don’t like intolerance, I like open discussion."
