UK Conservative Party firm on BREXIT. Labour looks lost under Keir Starmer

Via iNews (https://inews.co.uk/opinion/keir-starmer-brexit-withdrawal-agreement-642575)..

A big part of political combat is over what the fight is actually about. Traditionally, the Conservative Party has preferred to fight elections on the issues like defence, the economy and crime, while Labour has preferred to fight elections on issues like health or education.

The success of Boris Johnson in 2019 was partly down to turning a traditional Labour issue – health – into a Conservative area of strength, in part by linking the need to move past the Brexit deadlock with the ability to spend more money on healthcare. The success of Tony Blair in 1997 was in doing the same to crime and Jeremy Corbyn was able to pull a similar trick off in 2017 in order to deprive Theresa May of her majority.

That’s part of why both Keir Starmer and Ed Davey, the new Liberal Democrat leader, this week have both sounded the same note on Brexit: that it is, if not for life, at least going to last well past Christmas. Starmer has said that the issue of whether the United Kingdom is in or outside the EU has been settled for the foreseeable, as has Davey. Neither plans to campaign to rejoin anytime soon.

Kier Starmar may have the. Physical appearance and experience of a man who could be leader,but he lacks charm and wit,Tony Blair for all his faults had both these qualities ,plus he had vision as to where to the party Labour Party should go,and all the Labour Party fell into line,if not they were out,well it looks like the Conservatives have adopted many of The useful qualities of the old New Labour,like unity,as Labour of today is a devided entity ,with the old left at loggerheads with Blairites ,it also some voters of traditional persuasion are turned off by Labour’s… Read more »

Tony Blair ”for all his faults” You mean like being a war criminal just like his best mate Bush. FFS grow up. The WMDs were a lie and he knew it was a lie. But you must be the only one on the planet who still thinks that Saddam had WMDs.

I thought that was a very fair presentation of what’s going on. Of course when Brexit is done and dusted, if this nonsense about locking people up in their homes and crashing the economy is still going on, then BJ had better watch his back because he will have outlived his usefulness to the Brits.
