The polls may be indicating a huge win for Labour at the next general election, but here’s a reason Keir Starmer shouldn’t be celebrating yet:
Almost two in three voters want a new political party to take on the Conservatives and Labour, a shock new study of trust in politics has found.
61 per cent want ‘completely new type of political party’, [the] survey [has found] as pessimism hits [a] record high.
Yes indeed. Edelman’s annual trust barometer poll says the UK is increasingly pessimistic, distrustful of government and disdainful of politicians.
Three-quarters of those polled (75 per cent) said they thought the UK is going in the wrong direction.
61 per cent agreed that the UK “needs a completely new type of political party to compete with the Conservatives and Labour for power”.
Just 23 per cent of people said they felt close to the Tories, down four points since 2022, compared with 29 per cent saying the same about Labour, an increase of six points.
So neither party had a resounding vote of approval and it is easy to understand why so many want a new party.
But what kind of party would it be?
Judging by some of the other survey answers, it would be anti-Brexit (don’t be surprised; it’s only a matter of time before the two main parties change their tune on this disaster), would support improved standards of living, curb inequality and end the need for food banks.
Is anyone interested in taking up the torch on this?

Starmer is a proven liar, fraud, backstabber, deceitful in the extreme, a bought and paid for zionist, a tory and establishment stooge, There is no way he and his racist, far right cronies can be believed or trusted.Starmer has destroyed the labour party for personal gain. He and his cronies should have no place in the labour party! Get rid!
As the young do not vote, the poll showed that the people who sufficiently turn out to vote are Leavers over 50 years of age.
The new kind of political party is the Over 50s & Young Labouring Ages party, that alone has the pension money policies written from the 1950s ladies suffering resulting from pension reform, that in reality was the abolition of retirement for all, men and women the same.
The EU is enemies of the working class and working class pensioners, with all ages coming out with the Yellow Vests in France against pension age rise.
Brexit has come and gone. What is important now is not paying tribute money to a foreign government, but in funding public services, resurrecting public NHS and halting the austerity deaths of all ages.
Seeking volunteer admin, please, for the only party able to beat Tory, Labour and Lib Dems by gaining the vital Grey Vote, due to all those parties having betrayed working class pensioners and 1950s to 1980s born ladies since late 1970s. Even worse to come. As well as permanently solving the ever more dire cost of living crisis.

Just what Corbyn was offering. Pity the voters listened to the MSM.
