In the north, being a heterosexual white male who has had a successful career before politics isn't seen as the crime that it might be to some media types.

I've got to ask what these new blue, Northern, Labour supporters saw in millionaire, old Etonian, bon vivant, Boris Johnson, or millionaire, old Etonian, investment manager, Jacob Rees-Mogg. You can paint Starmer as an establishment figure all you want, but Johnson and JRM are the establishment's establishment!

You mean SIR Starmer.... surely?

QC, DPP,CPS, Hooman Rights lawyer.

Seems a pretty decent and sensible bloke, reading his wiki you'd say as blue as the pacific. Be nice to have a sensible opposition, hopefully he will crush momentum and rid the party of anti-semites.

My guess is you won't read another word in the press about Antisemitism or Venezuela.

I certainly think Keir will be a bit more "statesman" like than Corbyn, he is comparatively new to Parliament and, initial impression, more open to partnership, at least in these strange times.

Labour needs to reinvent itself pretty thoroughly to become relevant to modern Britain. What were once the northern labour heartlands are now in electoral play and so important to both major parties. If you’re under ~40 in those regions, being of political importance will be a novel experience after a long period of Conservatives knowing they couldn’t win there and Blair taking those seats for granted while wooing Worcester woman.

Labour have got a few years to work it out. Sulking Momentum, can eff right off with their promise to hold Starmer to account. They sound like the sodding ERG (before the ERG took over - they’ll be less keen on accountability now).

The post-Brexit Conservative Government has to work out what it is now, while simultaneously trying to run the country during and in the aftermath of the coronavirus crisis. There was a bleak humour in seeing Laura Kuenssberg stressing the scale of the task facing Starmer, when comedy charlatan Johnson is laid up sick, during a crisis that could easily overwhelm somebody fighting fit and competent, and with another kid on the way at 55.

They will be raking over his old cases to see what dirt or with a bit of a stretch unproven dirt. He is a Sir something Johnson is yet to receive which I am sure will be a cause of great grief to him.
At least Sir Keir Starmer does not have to live with a name like Boris de Pfeffel and unlike Johnson he was born in the U.K and appears better at his personal life. In addition I am sure he is more honest than Johnson but that is not a very high bar to reach
