Labour fury: Starmer and Lammy spark outrage over Berlin video 'Hideously inappropriate!'

Date:


The Labour leader and shadow foreign secretary flew to Germany on Thursday to meet with politicians and business leaders. While in the country, both Sir Keir and Mr Lammy visited the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin.

Sir Keir posted on his Twitter account vowing to win the next UK general election, but used a video which included him looking solemn at the memorial site.

In the clip, he and Mr Lammy walk through the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe’s concrete pillars.

In Germany, photos and videos are generally allowed at the memorials, but it is a faux pas to take selfies or record videos.

Photo, film and television recordings for commercial purposes require written permission.

The use of the memorial in Sir Keir’s video has sparked outrage, with Twitter users calling it “hideously inappropriate”.
