Perhaps I’m missing something and millions do see Johnson through the same eyes. Or its wish fulfilment. Starmer is a boring lawyer falling flat against swashbuckling Boris is the predictable line from write Henry Deedes. I assume his surname opened doors which his lack of journalistic flair couldn’t.
Even when Sir Keir Starmer gets the better of Boris Johnson at PMQs, as he did yesterday, it's hard to declare him the outright victor.
For all the Labour leader's clever clogs queries and forensic abilities, he remains the most insipid figure at the despatch box. Drab. Dull.
Trouble is he's such a lawyer. Not the sort of glamorous slick shooter you see in US legal dramas, dressed tip-to-toe in Armani and yelling 'objection, your honour!' with manly vigour.
No, Sir Keir is a real life legal eagle, one of those prodding, probing bods obsessed with statistics and mind-numbing details that leave poor jurors bamboozled. https://mol.im/a/8481549
