Sir Keir Starmer has ruled out rejoining the EU or the single market if Labour comes to power, insisting such moves would create further division in Britain.

He also said the UK would not join a customs union under his party’s leadership, as he set out a five-point plan to “make Brexit work”.

In a speech to the Centre for European Reform at an event at the Irish Embassy in London, Sir Keir said Labour is “claiming the centre ground of British politics once again”, not from a “mushy place of compromise”, but driven by “purpose” and “optimism”.

But despite his claims, GB News viewers appear not to trust the Labour leader over Brexit.

The People's Channel published a poll on Twitter on Tuesday, with the question: "Do you trust Keir Starmer on Brexit after the Labour leader ruled out a campaign to rejoin the EU?"

Of the 4,219 respondents, a whopping 91.3 percent voted "no" while just 8.7 percent voted "yes".

it comes after the deputy leader of the Reclaim Party, Martin Daubney slammed Sir Keir's comments.

Speaking on GB News’ Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel, Mr Daubney said: “I mean you could say: 'Thank the lord, six years on, Keir Starmer has finally accepted the Brexit referendum.'

“You could however deduce that he’s doing this purely for cynical reasons because anyone who has campaigned in national elections, as I have twice, knocked on doors all over the East Midlands, West Midlands, the North will tell you, Keir Starmer has a massive Brexit problem.

"People don’t believe him and that’s for good reason.

“48 times Keir Starmer voted against Brexit, at every turn he led the people’s vote campaign to overturn the referendum."

He continued: “More positions on Brexit than the Kama Sutra, in, out, in, out, shake it all about.

“Here’s a guy we simply cannot trust, suddenly he’s saying 'trust me on Brexit to try and win over the voters.'

“Now I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him, the voters don’t and his own party don’t.”
