Labour has taken a severe thrashing in the latest local elections with the Conservatives sweeping the board and taking Hartlepool, Redditch and Nuneaton and Bedworth in the Midlands and Northumberland together with Harlow in Essex.
There was some suggestion that their election battle cry, “vote Labour and have your breakfast in bed,” had not helped matters.
Diane Abbott, MP and Socialist member of the Labour party, frequently lambasted for some of her comments which suggest she may not be the full shilling, said it was not possible to blame Jeremy Corbin for the results.
Well, if it’s not Diane Abbots fault, nor Jeremy Corbin one has to look elsewhere and find another who is responsible for the crumbling of the Red Wall.
One doesn’t like to be unnecessarily beastly but perhaps the problem my lay at the door of Sir Kier Starmer, Captain Hindsight as he is otherwise known, who is always droning on about how we should have dealt with the Covid pandemic.
It may come as a surprise to Sir Kier that we can all be wise after the event, however I imagine most of us could do it with a little more character, sadly this man has the charisma of a rather dull roll of wallpaper, which may go some considerable way to explain Labour’s recent crashing defeat.
