People who get personal with any further attacks in the thread will be suspended. As will any individuals using wording like Smarmer instead of Starmer etc.

Seems Starmer has been cosying up to Corbyn supporting, eat the rich(?), multi millionaire, football pundit Gary Neville.

Neville for mayor?  Funniest thing I've  read or seen today. 

The Labour Party have famous backers, so what? The cream of stage, screen, music and much else besides have declared their support for Labour over the years.

 

The Tories have famous backers like Tony Hadley (of Spandau Ballet fame); Katie Hopkins; Roy Chubby Brown and William Roache (who plays Ken Barlow).

 

Now that is funny :hihi:

You've missed the point, I wasn't trying to argue with facts. 

I was merely pointing out in response to a jibe about Gary Neville, that the Tories support amongst singers, actors etc, seems to be from the, well, the 'end of the pier' shall we say.

I do find it funny when all those Anti Corbyn haters who plotted his downfall and constantly told us that anyone but Corbyn would be 20 points ahead of the Tories, they are now  staggeringly quiet, i wish someone who ask Blair and his cronies why we are not 20 points ahead

I suspect that Starmer, being completely ineffective as Leader of the opposition, has taken on the role of being a useful idiot to the Tories.

 

But who's benefitting from this?  Certainly not the Labour party, or anybody on the political left.

In 2017, 2 years before the 2019 general election Labour were polling 26%

If you now look at 2021 2 years before the next general election and Labour are polling at 33%

In 2017 in the space of 3 months Labours polling went from 26% to 40% so things can change very quickly.

All this negativity about Labour and Starter is stoked by the Tory media machine!

Sir Keir Starmer was clearly the best candidate who entered the competition to replace Corbyn.  The problem for the Labour Party is that Sir Keir Starmer was as much to blame as Corbyn for the huge defeat the Labour Party suffered at the last general election as a consequence of his stance on Brexit.  The Labour Party still don't seem to comprehend the reason why they did so badly at the last general election which is one of the reasons why they are still unelectable.

Labour still has a large number of Corbynistas, hell bent on bringing Starmer down, so he's having to fight three sides - the Tories, the Lib Dems and the old left of the party.

In the GE of 2017 Labour got 40% of the vote and in the GE of 2019 Labour got 32.2% of the vote so I agree that things can change very quickly but not necessarily in the way Labour supporters hope.

The only thing bringing starmer down is starmer, he is clearly out of his depth, but it does beg the question of a 5th column within the party
