Johnson is even more unpopular and Starmer needs lessons on the economy. The UK is in deep trouble

Last Updated: August 9, 2021By Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Rage: is this how Boris Johnson reacted to his latest fall in the opinion of the general public? Probably not. He’s so self-absorbed that he probably hasn’t noticed or doesn’t care.

Empty shelves and crowded graveyards, indeed.

Boris Johnson is now less popular with the UK’s voters than in January when the nation was in the grip of a Covid-19 wave he had failed to prevent, according to a new Opinium poll.

His approval rating is at -16, with 34 per cent approving and 49 per cent disapproving. Rounding accounts for the drop from -15 to -16.

Matters may become worse for the Bullingdon bully after an article stated that he is, basically, an emotionally-stunted overgrown schoolboy and is unfit for public office:

The Opinium poll is even worse news for Keir Starmer, though: he’s at -11, his worst rating since Opinium started tracking him.

And we have discovered that Starmer has been taking lessons in economics:

He had to be told how the Labour way “traditionally differs from the Tories”.

That has to be hugely worrying for the vast majority of Labour Party members and supporters: the party’s leader needed to be told how his approach needs to be different – nearly a year and a half after he got the job!

Interestingly, when Opinium asked voters who they would prefer to be prime minister, the most popular choice was “neither”.

    I bet you Cameron and Johnson had a bet when they were at Oxford on who could be PM for the longest. It’s just a game to these self serving elitist pricks.

    Starmer is fascist tories’ quisling and not fit to be a fake leader of the now defunct labour party! Little England is now a fascist state and democracy doesn’t exist! But it will take at least five more years of fascist tory rule before the peasants rise up and demand an end to fascist toryism! meanwhile fake labour party boys will be too busy fighting each for a tiny piece of ‘political power’ to notice they are irrelevant!

    I predict an even worse fascist political party will rise up from the ashes of little england and we will become a failed state ruled by fascist criminals! Oh wait! That’s already happened! So what will happen will be another fake political party being created which is identical to the fascist tory one and nothing will change!

    we have now entered the same state of politics as America! “vote for me or you get him” the choice of evil or a little less evil! it is still bloody evil.
