Is anybody else not that bothered about the election results for Labour. I mean, of course the media are blow it all up out of all proportions, and Starmer's probably going to have to go on Marr's and eat shit from him, but was it really unexpected? In England?
I think the main problem for Labour is that the majority of people will only give a fuck if it's them personally being affected. They don't give a shit about foodbanks and the like, so long as they're doing all right. The Tory party is a party of "I'm all right, Jack", for "I'm all right, Jack"'s, and for all the soul searching Labour will do, I think they're basically stuffed until the Tories fuck up big time.
Which they will do, eventually, as populism and three-word slogans will only go so far. They've made a lot of promises to their new found support and there's still a lot of problems to deal with besides COVID. You can guarantee that Teflon Johnson will do a bunk before the shit hits the fan and it will be left to someone like Raab, Gove, or even Liz Truss
to carry the can.
Personally, I'd be pleasantly surprised if we have a Labour government before the end of the decade, but I wouldn't be surprised if we don't. It's just the way this country seems to be now.
