No conference bump and now focus group in typical Labour-turned-Tory-over-Brexit town Blyth thinks he’s no good
Keir Starmer is a Labour ‘leader’ who doesn’t really lead. As has been obvious from his terror of actually opposing, his 100% record of breaking the campaign pledges that got him into the job and especially his recent conference drear-fest and ‘essay’, he is led rather than leading, he and his advisers living by the ‘focus group’.
And boy is he in trouble, because the focus group despises him and perceives his lack of trustworthiness – especially in the working-class areas that turned their back on Labour in 2019 because of Starmer’s relentless betrayal of party and members in his unauthorised second-referendum sabotage.
In a focus group exercise released by Politico this morning, voters in the north-east town of Blyth considered him thoroughly dodgy: ‘sleazy’, ‘untrustworthy’, ‘something about him not right’. If that wasn’t enough, he’s ‘out of touch’, ‘smarmy’ and not for the working class:
Worse still, while the results of the discussions suggest that voters in places like Blyth have started to ‘suss’ Boris Johnson for the substance-free charlatan he is – and they still prefer him to Starmer and would give him the benefit of the doubt of Labour’s non-leader.
If Labour’s going to continue to exist in any form worth the name, Starmer has to go. Quickly.
