Schadenfreude (Boris Johnson plummets in the opinion polls)

Boris Johnson: it seems we all think it’s time for him to go. He won’t accept that, of course.

He won’t be panicking.

Boris Johnson will be doing what every other Tory leader does when they take a pummelling in the polls – he’ll be telling himself there’s plenty of time to bounce back.

With a new lie, perhaps?

According to several mainstream papers (I’m taking the information from iNews), Johnson’s person rating among readers of Tory blog ConservativeHome has fallen by a massive 36 points – from 39 to just three.

Apparently the reason for this is his reluctance to self-isolate after being in close contact with somebody found to have Covid-19 (his own Health Secretary Sajid Javid, as it happened).

So it seems people really do care if ministers behave as though there’s one rule for the mob and a different rule for elites like them – and these people were Conservatives, which means their opinions actually mean something to Johnson and his grasping rabble.

Worse still, this dissatisfaction with a prime minister who ignores his own rules for personal gain seems to be translating into electoral abandonment, with an Ipsos MORI poll showing public satisfaction with Johnson’s government has fallen to its lowest in nine months.

And a YouGov poll added that the Tories could struggle to hold up to 16 seats in their traditional heartlands. That’s not the recently-aquired Red Wall, where people might be expected to ‘float’ back to Labour; it’s what have previously been Tory strongholds.

One wonders where these people would go. Not to Keir Starmer’s Fake Labour, that’s for sure. He’s even less trustworthy than Johnson (as the current controversy over one of his MPs writing for The Sun demonstrates).

And that’s what This Writer thinks the Tories are failing to grasp: that, after two years of his dishonest antics, people have realised that Johnson is an out-and-out liar who has only stayed where he is because Parliament’s rules have protected him.

But that can’t stop people seeing the facts – either via Peter Stefanovic’s viral video (which may need updating after all of the lies Johnson has uttered since it was originally edited together)…

… and after Dawn Butler was ejected from Parliament by an acting deputy Speaker, for the heinous crime of listing the facts about Johnson’s lies.

But now we come to the other side of this coin; if people are deserting Johnson and the Tories, where will they go?

And the answer is clear: they won’t go to Keir Starmer’s poisonous Fake Labour.

Even after the self-isolation/dishonesty revelations about Boris Johnson, the voting intention polls look like this, and Damo is right to draw the conclusion he does:

Starmer’s personal rating is much worse, after a year in which he has relentlessly pursued and persecuted socialists who used to form the backbone of the party with false accusations of anti-Semitism, has pandered to the Tory narrative about Covid-19 even when it has caused more infections and deaths, and has lied about his own policies – rejecting those on which he was elected Labour leader and offering nothing to replace them because he knows if we discover his real plans, his party will end up consisting of himself and Wes Streeting:

There’s an obvious answer – for both parties: ditch the leader.

History shows that voters forgive parties with unpopular leaders if they get new ones – even if this does not result in a policy change.

It seems the British people are extremely shallow in this respect.

The first party to grasp this fact will be the one that gains most in the post-Covid political landscape that we are all soon to inhabit.

But Starmer – and Johnson – are both stubborn political survivalists.

Will they accept the inevitable? Or will they try to put it off at any cost, thereby causing huge harm to their party’s electability?

Agony for Labour as it falls further behind in the polls WHEN THE TORIES ARE IN TROUBLE

Read it and weep:

That’s right: Labour has fallen to 11 points behind the Conservatives, according to that most accurate of pollsters, Survation.

This is at a time when Boris Johnson is embattled over racism, over plans to privatise the NHS, criminalise the RNLI, and withdraw funding for overseas aid. Those are just topics I recall off the top of my head.

Keir Starmer is continuing to lose ground to a party, and a leader, that continues to demonstrate that it is unfit for government.

If he can’t make any headway against Johnson’s incompetence, racism and, let’s face it, sheer malevolence, then he’s not going to win any general elections.

He needs to give up before he does Labour any more damage. But we all know he won’t, don’t we?

Will Labour celebrate as more reliable Survation poll puts party only 11 POINTS behind Tories?

Uninspired: Keir Starmer searches for something else to blame, having realised that saying Labour’s problems are all due to Jeremy Corbyn won’t work any more.

This Site suggested, back when YouGov put Labour 18 points behind the Tories, that the figure might not be entirely accurate.

YouGov is a Tory-run polling organisation, remember. It shows, doesn’t it?

Now we have figures from Survation – the pollster whose figures have most accurately described voting intentions for the last few years – and they’re not much better!

Survation puts Labour a colossal 11 points behind the Tories. The Conservatives are up six points to 44 per cent, while Labour has plummetted five points to 33 per cent. That means they were level-pegging in the company’s previous survey.

But wait – there’s worse.

Boris Johnson’s approval rating has shot up to four per cent, while Keir Starmer is now languishing at -11 per cent. It’s a rise of 11 points for Johnson, while Starmer’s ratings have been falling steadily since May last year. He started with 17 per cent in May last year and has lost 27 points over the 12 months since.

On the question of who would make the best prime minister, Starmer hasn’t been a contender since September last year. Boris Johnson leads by 17 points, with support from 45 per cent of voters, while only 28 per cent thought Starmer would do a better job.

And people are under no illusions about the cause of the party’s collapse:

The question now is how much longer Starmer can hang on before he realises that nobody believes him any more when he blames Jeremy Corbyn.

Labour has hit a new low in the polls and Keir Starmer can’t blame anybody but himself

Keir Starmer: both the cause and the symptom of Labour’s electoral problems.

More than a year after Jeremy Corbyn handed over the Labour leadership to Keir Starmer, the party has fallen to a new low in the opinion polls, 18 points behind the Conservatives.

The situation is almost the exact opposite of what so-called ‘centrists’ said would happen with “Anybody But Corbyn” as leader; they promised a 20-point lead.

So, what went wrong?

The new poll, conducted by YouGov and released on Saturday, had Labour on just 28 per cent – down four points on Jeremy Corbyn’s disastrous 2019 general election result, and down 12 points on his 2017 result.

The opposition leader was publicly accused by one of his MPs [Ian Lavery] of lacking substance and being “invisible” as Labour continued to reel from a series of disappointing elections.

The new front bench team has so far failed to break the narrative that the party does not have distinctive policies or have fixed principles.

If this is the start of a leadership bid by Lavery, This Writer reckons it will be welcomed by the party membership and by voters.

Of course, the poll is be Tory-run YouGov and is therefore suspect. We’ll have to see what Survation has to say before we can be sure.

As far as comments are concerned, strangely I can’t find it at the moment but someone put a satirical remark on Twitter to the effect that, if leftists had only refrained from calling him “Keith”, Labour might be only 16 points behind.

… oh, and among working class voters, that’s a whopping thirty-six points behind:

It doesn’t matter whether we call him Keir or Keith; his name is Mud.

Get rid of him, Labour. We all deserve better. And it won’t come from the centre or the right.

Voters are turning away from StarmerLabour – yet polled party members say he’s doing a good job. Why?

Keir Starmer: he may have engineered widespread support for himself by purging the Labour Party of dissenters, but he is heading for a disaster of epic proportions in the local elections.

A few obvious answers are available to the question in the headline but we’ll get to them soon enough. First, the evidence:

The Labour Party’s prospects in next months local elections are plummeting to new lows every time there is a poll, it seems.

YouGov’s last three show a distinct downward trajectory, from this on April 8…

… to this, eight days later:

So according to this pollster, Labour is now trailing the Conservatives by 14 points, at a time when the Tories can’t do anything right and should be fearing the public’s backlash over Brexit, Covid-19, corruption and the possible end of the United Kingdom.

And, of course, Starmer’s supporters should be reminded that they said anybody but Jeremy Corbyn would give Labour a 20-point lead, automatically.

Meanwhile, though, another YouGov survey has claimed that Labour Party members are satisfied with Starmer’s performance and think he’s doing a great job.

How can this be?

Two answers present themselves:

Firstly, that the purge that Starmer launched after he became party leader last year has been successful and members who belonged to the left wing of the party – socialists who conform to the ideals that led to its original formation – have largely been removed, leaving a right-wing rump that agrees with Starmer’s wishy-washy, Tory-supporting, any-way-the-wind-blows populism.

Or alternatively that – as a result of the purge – anybody left within Labour is living in fear of being purged if they are found to have said anything even remotely critical of the party leadership.

There’s a word for an organisation that instils that kind of fear in the people. I’m sure you know the one I mean. It would explain why Starmer has been so supportive of Boris Johnson’s thugs.

Of course, there are still nearly three weeks until the elections – and a week in politics is still a long time.

There’s plenty of time for Labour to fare much worse than even the current polls are suggesting.

Will Starmer really sack Annaliese Dodds because he won’t take responsibility for his own record?

Fake: Keir Starmer seems keen to pretend that Annaliese Dodds is responsible for the poor position Labour has taken in the polls since HE became the party’s figurehead. Or is he faking it, and will deny any truth to it if the suggestion backfires?

It’s being mooted that Keir Starmer is set to sack Annaliese Dodds as Shadow Chancellor because Labour has plummeted in the polls. Isn’t that his fault?

Apparently it will be claimed that Dodds – who has been nigh-on invisible for the last year or so, unlike Starmer – has failed to effectively communicate Labour’s “vision”.

That would be a fair comment if Labour currently had a “vision” to communicate – but Starmer has stamped on all attempts to signpost where Labour is going, instead pursuing a policy of jumping on every bandwagon he can find.

It is Starmer’s Labour that has dropped in the polls; and Starmer himself has also plummeted.

So it is Starmer who should accept the roasting that has been dealt out to him on the social media since the alleged sacking-to-be seeped into public knowledge yesterday (March 28). Here’s a sample:

What’s the betting that this doesn’t happen now, and that Starmer had leaked it just to see whether it would take some of the heat off of him?

It wouldn’t be the first time he has adopted a Tory tactic!

Starmer plummets in opinion polls – with local elections only weeks away

We thought it was bad when we saw Keir Starmer’s Labour Party plummeting 13 points in the polls, but this is worse!

Starmer’s personal popularity has fallen further and faster. Support among Labour voters is less than a third of what it was in June last year – and totals less than one-fifth of Labour voters in general.

He has failed to pick up the Conservative votes that his lurch to the political right was intended to grab. From 14 per cent support in June, his approval rating among Tories is now minus 15 per cent.

One commentator implied that Starmer only has himself to blame, after his despicable treatment of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Since he suspended Corbyn, Starmer’s rating had fallen by 31 per cent among Labour voters, while Tories were said to consider him dishonourable and untrustworthy.

I’ll say this for the Tories: they may be lousy at choosing their own leaders, but their judgement of Labour’s current head honcho is spot-on.

Starmer plummets in the polls

It isn’t just because the Covid-19 vaccine rollout is going well.

Starmer is not experienced enough to be the leader of the Labour Party.

He has been an MP only since 2015 and doesn’t know what he stands for.

That might explain why he has betrayed every promise he made in order to get elected.

A poll showed 41 per cent of people now think Starmer is failing as Labour leader, with 35 per cent saying he’s doing well.

He displays a lack of vision that is not distinct from the Tories. He is beige.

If local elections go poorly on May 6, he might be out by the end of the year.

But if he does go, who will replace him? Another beige wet-wipe?

Tory opinion poll asks ‘degrading’ question about disability – and it will help form national policy

As a man in a relationship with someone who has a disability, I can confirm that this is disgustingly inappropriate.

What do you think of this tweet by the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire?

Four those who can’t read images well, the question is: “Do you agree or disagree that you would be happy to have a physical relationship with a disabled person?”

The implication is that people with disabilities are sub-human and should not enjoy the same relationships as the rest of us – and that shows despicable prejudice by the Tory government.

As I say, my own partner has a disability so I know this subject very well.

The people want a windfall tax on big firms’ pandemic profits. Why is Keir Starmer getting in the way?

Keir Starmer: yet another own goal.

I bet certain commentators will be doing their best to muddy this issue so let’s make it clear:

There are moves to increase Corporation Tax, forcing companies to pay more when they could be investing that money in (for example) employment of people who desperately need a regular paycheque. This is a bad idea.

There are also moves to levy a windfall tax on firms and individuals who have profited from the Covid-19 pandemic – such as Amazon and all those Tory cronies who won huge Covid-related contracts. This is a good idea and is supported by 70 per cent of the population, according to a Survation poll.

Keir Starmer and his Zombie Labour party oppose any increase in taxation for businesses.

There will be voters who are shocked that anybody claiming to be a Labour Party representative should plead against taxing corporations, and while there are good reasons for leaving Corporation Tax low at the moment, although it is likely that firms will need further incentives to keep them on the straight and narrow, there is no reason at all to back away from a windfall tax.

This decision is spitting in the faces of the voters – at a time when Starmer desperately needs to get them on-side.

Labour is falling increasingly further behind, at a time when – we were told – the party should be at least 20 points ahead of anybody else, having dumped Jeremy Corbyn.

Is it time his supporters’ club admitted that this wasn’t true and Starmer is a non-starter?
