Keir Starmer poked fun at Boris Johnson’s chief aide Dominic Cummings at a cheeky beer-based photoshoot.
The Labour leader posed with cans of Brew Dog’s ‘Barnard Castle Eye Test’ beer – named for Mr Cummings’ controversial drive from his Durham lockdown bolt-hole to a beauty spot.
Mr Cummings claims he made the 30-minute journey to ensure he was fit to make the longer drive back to London.
Mr Starmer visited a Brew Dog pub in Tower Hill, London, today to discuss how their reopening weekend had gone.
And during the visit, accompanied by Shadow Business minister Lucy Powell, he picked up and posed with a can of the limited edition IPA.
Profits from the sales of the drink go towards funding BrewDog’s manufacture of free sanitiser for the NHS & Health Care Charities.
Following the visit, Mr Starmer tweeted: “BrewDog might have had their first weekend back serving customers but they never stopped working.
“They’ve helped in the national effort against coronavirus by making free hand sanitiser.
“Today we were here to say thank you.”
Although the initial batch of BrewDog’s hand sanitiser was rejected by the NHS, the firm reworked the recipe to make it hospital-grade.
They say they’ve now supplied more than 50,000 bottles of the sanitiser to the NHS and care charities.
