Firstly.  Blimey, this Labour Party thread took some finding.  It's like we've forgotten about them entirely. 

 

Easier to find the 'Dodo' thread. 😁 

 

Anyway, I know he's admitted to wearing moisturiser but Keir Starmer is a hell of a long way from that 'We all want / the next Labour leader should be a Northern woman.

Or the truth told by Johnson or Trump threads.

Keir Starmer is a thoughtful,well balanced ,pragmatic and statesmanlike individual.

I am sure that he will fulfil his immediate role in a difficult situation.

The Conservative Party has had no option but to become an apparently more caring and socially responsible organisation and in the fullness of time this will have to be continued.

The Labour Party exists to fight for this and it needed to distance itself from the baggage accumulated under Corbyn.

I wish that the U.S. had some similar influence over their erratic President

Will Sir Kier ever become PM?

 

I hope so, but I doubt it.

 

Let's examine the facts.

 

Firstly, he sounds like a Northerner, and you'd think that would count in his favour, given that we'll all be relying on foodbanks soon, but the ignorant folk of this fair county have made it quite clear we secretly want to be lorded over by a bunch of entitled, privileged, privately-school yobs who cut the Police force and NHS over the last decade, as long as we can openly hate on immigrants.

 

On the other hand, Sir Kier is titled, and went to Oxford as a postgrad, so will appeal to the landed gentry.

 

I doubt I'll ever vote for him though.  He studied at L**ds Uni.

 

Sorry Kier  😢

It’s the personality that gets you there in the first place ,and then you have to come up with the goods.

Boris is still in the first stage.

Obviously people are swayed by different personalities.That is the only way that I can understand how Trump got to be POTUS.

It's been that way Tony Bliar took power.  And stayed there.  Twice.

It wasn't no secret that the ignorant folk of this fair country wanted a bunch of entitled privately-schooled yobs (didn't titled Kier attend a private school?), they openly voted for them.

 

Wiki (assuming it's correct):    

 

"Starmer has called for a reform to the EU free movement rules following Brexit and for a "fundamental rethink of immigration rules from start to finish".[45] In his first interview after being appointed to the Shadow Cabinet, Starmer argued that immigration was too high and called for it to be reduced as Britain leaves the EU, despite Corbyn ruling out any cap.[46] Starmer told Politico in April 2016 that negotiations with the EU should start on the understanding that there must be "some change" to freedom of movement rules, given that remaining in the EU single market is no longer a reality.[47]

In May 2017, Starmer said that "free movement has to go", but that it was important to retain "free movement of labour", given the importance of immigration for the UK's economy.[48] Starmer was a supporter of a second referendum on Brexit,[49] with this position becoming Labour Party policy in their 2019 General Election manifesto.[50] "

Probably a battle that I'm doomed to lose, but it's Keir as in Keir Hardie, not Kier as in failing construction company.

Running at about 50/50 so far.
