If you look at any of the usual suspects - Rachel Swindon, Skwawkbox etc, - it's relentless. They're far, far more concerned about damaging Starmer and getting him out in any way possible than doing anything about the Tories. Just constant, constant sniping and undermining. The classic I saw the other day was - in the same string of tweets - a straight-faced tweet about Labour's policies and leadership leading to the stunning 2017 election result (where, you may recall, Labour came 2nd against the 2nd-worst PM this country has ever seen who ran probably the worst campaign this country has ever seen), followed by a tweet claiming it was Starmer's fault the 2019 election was lost because he pushed Corbyn towards a more remain-aligned position.
Complete obliviousness to the data showing the 2017 result was down to tactival voting and the hated centrist dads coming out for Labour vs May's brexit policies despite Corbyn, and then the 2019 result - with the party machinery then entirely Corbyn-chosen - being down to woeful ineptitude coupled with 2 years of goodwill squandering, and a confused, clumsy referendum promise coupled with a confused, clumsy manifesto of everything for everyone whether they want or need it.
It's like looking at the most insane religon. Nothing bad is their fault. Everything good is their doing.
