Johnson has presided over hundreds of thousands of deaths, was on verge of ousting after multiple #partygate scandals and his government awarded massive unlawful contracts to mates and donors – and the Starmer trails behind him in poll of ‘prime ministerial’ qualities
Keir Starmer has lost his slim, short-lived lead over Boris Johnson in the public’s rating of party leaders as prime minister material, according to a new Opinium poll, which shows Johnson rising by three points while Starmer fell by one – and both were frankly awful and far below ‘don’t know/neither’.
It is the first time since November that Johnson has led, as the Leftie Stats Twitter account noted:
Johnson, don’t forget, was until just a week or two ago on the verge of being ousted by the Tories over his contempt for the public and the exposure of his repeated ‘partygate’ scandals – and his handling of the pandemic caused at least 150,000 needless Covid deaths (New Zealand has seen just 101 deaths in the whole pandemic) including thousands of pensioners coralled into care homes that were then deliberately infected with the virus.
The real death toll may well be far higher, as well as an unknown number of lives pointlessly blighted by ‘long covid’, an as-yet unquantified timebomb for the health of the nation’s children – and billions of pounds of public money stuffed into the pockets of Tory allies, mates, relatives and donors to little effect in at least some cases unlawfully. Yet Starmer now sits – again – behind the deadly clown currently residing in Number 10.
Who’d ever have guessed the public want an alternative to the Tories and not a grotesque tribute act?
