He’s done it again. He’s a barrister, he must know what words mean
Keir Starmer just can’t help insulting working-class towns and cities. After sneering on TV at the idea that Coventry might be relevant, he’s now said that the amount of pride the people have in their town ‘cannot be underestimated’.
He will, of course – if challenged, which the centrist media rarely do – claim that he meant the opposite, but ‘cannot be underestimated’ literally means ‘however low you guess it might be, you’re never going to be too low’:
He’s a barrister. He’s supposedly ‘forensic’. He must know what words mean.
