A SCOT has stunned Keir Starmer into silence after confronting him on a train.

The Labour leader is due to speak at the Scottish Labour winter gala fundraising event in Glasgow on Thursday evening.

However, one Scot interrupted his train journey to the event to probe the Labour leader about his stance on Gaza.

Starmer has previously been criticised for refusing to back calls for a ceasefire and claiming that Israel “has every right” to withhold power and water from people living in Gaza.

It has caused considerable rebellion within his own party,  with 56 of his MPs defying him and voting for an immediate ceasefire in a Commons vote last month. 

The video, shared by the Gaza Genocide Emergency Committee, shows Starmer being pressed about his stance, with the person recording the video asking: “Keir, how many more children in Palestine have to die before you call for a ceasefire?”

He continued: “Over 7000 children have died. Over 7000 children have been slaughtered by Israel.

“This is unacceptable. What happened to human rights? What happened to democracy?

“We call for peace, we call for democracy. We don’t see any of that when it comes to the Palestinians.

“7000 children. How many more have to die?

“20,000 people. How many more have to die?

“This is unacceptable. Where is your humanity?”

The man is then ushered away while Starmer sits in silence.

The Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry states that at least 17,177 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks since the October 7 attacks by Hamas, which claimed the lives of 1200 people.

On Monday, a senior Israeli official told journalists that around a third of those killed in Gaza so far were enemy combatants and said the figure of around 15,000 dead given by Palestinian authorities was “more or less" right.
