Was this Wes Streeting’s longest political metaphor yet?

Watch the moment shadow health secretary Wes Streeting fumbled his words as he made a point about how Keir Starmer has reformed the Labour Party, making it ‘ship-shape’.

The blunder happened soon after the general election exit poll showed Labour was on course for one of the biggest Commons majorities in history.

He told the BBC, “The only reason we have sails on the ship, and the ship is ship shape, is because Keir Starmer took the vessel from a shipwreck in 2019 and made it ship shape and seaworthy.”
