The Sun want to win over millennials and then goes on to imply Lefties are just immature idealists who become Tories when they face "complexities of adult life and, well, basic economics."


THE SUN SAYS Boris Johnson must win back millennial voters by giving them affordable housing

BORIS Johnson is right to repay his new voters in ex-Labour seats — but he must not overlook winning back millennials.

Many will scoff at that. It seems so long since young people backed the Tories in numbers.

But it’s not. In 2010 the Tories split 18-24s evenly with ­Labour, and beat them among 25-34s.

In 2015 they split the 25-34s — though Labour began to dominate the 18-24s who found Ed Miliband’s 1970s socialism new and sexy. Last week Labour was miles ahead in both brackets.

For years leftie teachers and lecturers have hammered home the mantra that Tories are wicked while Labour “care”. Last week a Cardiff University journalism lecturer branded Tory voters, some of them his students, “vermin”.

Social media further radicalises millennials to view politics as a binary war between Labour Remainer goodies and despicable Tory Brexit baddies.

Some of this will change naturally. Brexit will become normal. Voters will see Boris is nothing like Labour’s hard-right caricature. But it won’t be enough.

Some young people gravitate to the centre or right once they begin to grasp the complexities of adult life and, well, basic economics.

Owning a home and having kids focuses the mind too. But that won’t be an option if property remains unaffordable.

Boris CAN turn round a corrosive and infantile leftie culture which equates voting Tory with torturing babies.

But he must build millions of affordable homes and radically improve renters’ lot.






Labour doom

“OUR time will come,” threatens Corbyn, mimicking a slogan from his old IRA mates.

He might have added another: “Remember, we only have to be lucky once.”

That certainly seems to be Labour’s election strategy now, so convinced are they that they did nothing wrong.

But if Momentum believe they can simply install some new young Corbynista puppet as leader and get “lucky” in 2024 they’ll get thrashed again.

Labour’s moderates have only days to get organised, though. Corbyn’s clowns aim to stitch up their successor rapidly.

And a decade of defeat will follow.





You won. Get over it.
You no-Marx

HOW are the mighty fallen.

Ex-Speaker John Bercow is reduced to performing demeaning tricks on Italian TV. But at least he’s off OUR screens for a bit.

That’s more than can be said for, say, beaten Remainer bore Michael Heseltine or communist know-nothing Ash Sarkar.

You would have thought we were due an indefinite silence from vanquished Europhile elitists — or the hard-left halfwits masquerading as “journalists” who repelled former Labour voters.

But broadcasters still have these flatulent, irrelevant Boris-haters on speed dial.

Will they ever stop inviting them on?

The new Farages? "Hard-left halfwits masquerading as “journalists” who repelled former Labour voters" is not a description I'd challenge.

I actually felt a bit of a sense of resigned calmness reading this snide gloating bullshit. This is 100% theirs to own now. When Brexit turns out the way we all know it will, this is completely on them. A lot of impossible promises were made and, as much as they'll try, they can't deflect it on anybody else anymore. That's the tiny slither of positivity I can take out of this.

THE SUN SAYS Boris Johnson can now deliver ‘undeliverable’ Brexit — did Remainers call anything right?

REMEMBER how they sneered that Brexit was “undeliverable”? How a trade deal with the EU would take seven years? Did the Remainers call anything right?

Brexit will now be delivered on January 31. We will be out of the EU. And Brussels now looks as keen as Boris Johnson to sign a rapid new free-trade relationship by this time next year.

The PM aims to pass a law banning any extension beyond that. Funny, isn’t it, how the genuine threat of a No Deal exit focuses everyone’s mind?

These negotiations will have a far more respectful tone than those of the last three years. It was always obvious Brussels would only talk in good faith if it was certain we were going to see our referendum result through.

Which makes it all the more scandalous that europhile politicians, many unelected, colluded with the EU and assured them we would reverse Brexit at a second vote. They were grievously harming the national interest.

Most got their just deserts last week.

But they should all hang their heads and apologise for the delay, division and damage they have caused since June 2016.






Working party

FOR a clue how the Tories became the workers’ party, look at the new job figures.

Unemployment, after nine years of Conservative rule, is at its lowest since 1975. Employment is at a record high of 76.2 per cent. Wages are up 3.5 per cent, way ahead of inflation at 1.5 per cent.

Labour’s defeated extremists still navel-gaze from the London bubble about how their discredited socialist ideas would improve working people’s lives. They really should meet some.

In real life, Tory pro-business policies help create work and put food on families’ tables. It’s one reason those who want a hand up and not a handout voted for them in such huge numbers.

It turns out the Tories, not Labour, are for the many and not the few.

EVEN in a crowded field of terrible options for new Labour leader, Keir Starmer stands out as a stone-cold loser.
Okaaaay... :roll:



THE SUN SAY: Keir...hardly

EVEN in a crowded field of terrible options for new Labour leader, Keir Starmer stands out as a stone-cold loser.

The man best known for his dismal failures as Director of Public Prosecutions and for talking Labour into its suicidal “people’s vote” strategy.

Sir Keir, the multi-millionaire human rights QC now posing as a working-class boy.

Only one alternative is LESS likely to win back working-class voters in the North: Emily Thornberry — Lady Nugee, to be formal — another sanctimonious Islington barrister who sneers at working people and marched to reverse their Brexit vote dressed as an EU flag.

Labour would be insane to pick either. Especially now we know the election result flattered Corbyn.

The boundaries are still skewed in Labour’s favour — and the Brexit Party seems to have gifted Corbyn 20 northern seats by ­preventing certain Tory victories.

Labour’s problems run far deeper than they have realised. That’s without picking smug, rich London Remainers as leader.

If you combine print, mobile and digital readership it's read by over 10 million people. It's a big part of the reason we find ourselves in the position we're in. Easy to dismiss as absolute garbage and Right wing propaganda but a scary number of people read it without questioning it.
