Poll says Keir Starmer has dug Labour into a huge hole. Where’s Jeremy Corbyn when you need him?

Cosy chums: Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer both represent the over-privileged, entitled, suit-wearing twit class – but unlike Starmer, Johnson has a personality (even though it’s rotten). That’s why he beats Starmer in the polls.

This should be a big lesson for right-wingers in the Labour Party: be careful what you wish for, because you might just get it.

The so-called “Centrists” (in fact hard-right-wing politicians who would feel very much at home in the Conservative Party) dug a huge hole for their party in order to stop Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister in 2019.

Now they’re discovering that the leader they chose to replace Mr Corbyn – Keir Starmer – can’t get out of it. Instead, he is deepening the hole and dragging them all down with him:

Boris Johnson makes a better prime minister than Keir Starmer would despite Partygate, the cost of living crisis and the confidence vote in Johnson held by his MPs, according to the latest Observer poll.

28% think Johnson would make the best prime minister, 26% opted for Starmer.

Sadly, it seems Starmer’s team – if you can call it that – would rather delude themselves and gaslight us with blue-sky thinking than address the serious problems that their own idiocy has created.

Read the nonsense they’re spouting and weep:

“If you had said the morning after the 2019 election Labour could be back in one term, people would have laughed at you.”

They still would. Starmer is never going to win a general election.

“But the work that Keir has been doing to reform the party, often without fanfare, means that we can seriously talk about winning the next election. The fact we’ve climbed out of the hole we were in was never a given.”

It should have been, considering the people who dug it for Jeremy Corbyn tried hard to fill it in for Starmer.

But Corbyn attracted hundreds of thousands of people to join the party – and millions to vote for it, in spite of the bad press generated by his hard-right opponents – the people trying desperately to prop up their lame-duck leader now.

Starmer has scared off all those millions and turned Labour into the kind of party that can only score an advantage if Boris Johnson shoots himself in the foot.

What a shame.

Five years ago, we could have had a Labour prime minister if rightists squatting in the party had only accepted that the leader at the time was who people wanted.

Now they’re trying to force-feed us this bland sub-Tory faker and can’t understand why we refuse to swallow. Grotesque.

    Corbyn seems to have given up on Labour as well. He no longer mentions them in his Twitter bio.

  2. Frances Kay

    Well said. They will never admit what a colossal mistake they made. Labour is not a party for the right wing – Tories will win over them every time. Our best chance was Corbyn and they are now saddled with a wooden sound-bite spouter without a single policy idea.
