Piers Morgan asks Kier Starmer if he's taken drugs 14 times but he refuses to answer05/29/2021
SIR Keir Starmer stonewalls Piers Morgan in a new ITV interview after being asked 14 times whether he has taken drugs.
The Labour leader squirmed during a grilling sparked by claims he was a “party animal” at university.
Piers, 56, scented blood while filming next week’s Life Stories and would not be fobbed off by fudged answers from Sir Keir, 58.
The telly host said: “Have you ever dabbled in anything stronger than alcohol?
“You did not spend all your time at Leeds University in the library, did you? So, a cheeky spliff here and there?”
Sir Keir, Director of Public Prosecutions from 2008 to 2013, said: “We worked hard and played hard.”
But when pressed for more detail, he stated: “Drugs weren’t my thing.”
Piers insisted it should be a “yes or no” response.
He said: “Given your clear reluctance to give me a straight, simple answer, am I right in assuming from your response that you have tried drugs but that you didn’t actually like them and didn’t want to take any more?
"I’m not saying it was your thing, but you did try it. I mean, you’re reluctant to just say yes. You haven’t said no.”
Sir Keir said: “I haven’t said no.”
And when asked how many sexual partners he had before meeting wife Victoria, he joked he did not want to “do a Nick Clegg”.
The ex-Lib Dem leader told Piers in 2008 that he had slept with as many as 30 women.
