Tell that to all the northern brexit voters that turned to the Tories at the GE, Starmer was very much the architect of Labours brexit policy that pissed off a lot of voters off.
Fair comment. My judgement is that by the next election, that bitterness among the “ red wall voters” will have subsided enough to allow those people to prefer Starmer over Boris Johnson - in huge numbers. And Starmer will be more attractive to the middle ground floating voters.

I would urge all Labour Party members, even if it hurts at first, to bury the hatchet and form the united front that is Labour’s only chance of winning.

He'll get a chance from me, I just hope we're not taken over by the FBPE zealots because they had their hopes pinned on Starmer, he'll have to be strong.

Just seen Starmer’s victory speech. I know that everyone comes across a bit wooden on Skype. But it did remind me that he’s not very charismatic!

I nearly nodded off when he was talking during some of the hustings, let's hope he loosens up a bit.
