Insult added to self-inflicted injury as even broadcaster’s political expert fails Starmer on name recognition
As a disastrous night begins to unfold for Keir Starmer, Sky News chief political correspondent Jon Craig rubbed salt in the wounds of the most disastrous Labour leader in living memory.
As Craig talked to a LibDem peer, he tried to compare the ‘yellow Tories’ excuses with those made by the Labour leader – except Starmer’s lack of recognisability, policy and substance flummoxed even the channel’s politics specialist, who called him ‘Keith’.
With results barely starting to come in, Labour has lost more than a dozen council seats in Sunderland, as well as seats in Northumberland and the West Midlands to huge swings to the Tories – and the word from Hartlepool is that Labour has been ‘slaughtered’.
This is against a party led by a ‘social murderer’ whose policies and sociopathy have led to the deaths of more than 150,000 people – compared to the twenty-six deaths in fellow island nation New Zealand – a party also mired in corruption and barely even trying to hide it.
The video clip is funny. Starmer is not. He has to go.
