Keir Starmer has suffered a catastrophic fall in public opinion of his competence, trustworthiness, likeability and leadership qualities in the last two months, according to a new YouGov poll.
The results, from an already none-too-high base, look bleak for the Labour leader:
In only one category is the relative fall less than mid to high double digits – and that one, ‘trustworthiness’, is one one point short of reaching double figures.
The public doesn’t think too highly of non-oppositional ‘opposition’, mealy-mouthed words on the ‘black lives matter’ movement and police attacks on women, nor of a lack of vision and addictions to abstaining in Parliament and attacking your own party’s members and democracy. Who’d ever have guessed?
