Significant coming from a man who likes to keep his powder dry

Speaking of which my feeling about Starmer's 'keeping our heads down' Brexit obfuscation would be that it would serve Labour well in the long run but appeal to no-one in the short term and was a bad decision.

But John Curtice found it is not playing badly among Remainers and Leavers
However, there is not so sharp a difference between Remain and Leave voters so far as the increase in Labour support is concerned.

While support for the party amongst Remain voters has increased by more since the pre-election period (an increase of 6.5 points) than it has amongst those who voted Leave (up 3 points), the difference is too small to place too much reliance on, given the chance variation to which all polling is subject.

At the moment, at least it can be regarded as no more than a hint that Labour may be advancing more amongst Remain voters.

Meanwhile, we should also note that, although still well below what it is amongst Remain voters, support for Labour amongst those who voted Leave is apparently now as high as it has been at any point since the EU referendum. http://whatukthinks.org/eu/has-labours- ... th-brexit/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Even the Corbyn supporters in my CLP take no notice of Jez on Brexit and are happy to leave it to Starmer.

Are these the Re leavers I'm hearing so much about.

Will people be after Starmer? From a piece by The Secret Barrister.

Political ammunition is being loaded and turrets are whirring round towards Keir Starmer MP, who as Director of Public Prosecutions in 2009 is said to have taken the decision that no further proceedings against Worboys were appropriate in light of the indeterminate sentence passed. In order for the CPS to prosecute a criminal allegation, it must be satisfied that there is a realistic prospect of conviction on the available evidence (“the evidential test”), and that it is in the public interest to prosecute (“the public interest test”).

And so it begins...

'It was nine years ago': Labour's Keir Starmer dodges questions over why Worboys wasn't charged with more attacks – as it emerges Baroness Scotland 'decided NOT to push for tougher sentence'

The Labour Party....again. These destructive, dangerous people must be kept out of government indefinitely. God knows which simpletons still vote for them. Perhaps ¿Sir Kier¿ would feel differently if it was his daughter who was man-handled, abused and ra.ped?!
