Oh dear, Keir! Brexiteer MOCKS Labour leader – 'Still behind Tories!'


Writing in The Telegraph, Tom Harwood pointed out the new Labour leader was still trailing behind the Tories in recent opinion polls – despite Boris Johnson’s plunging approval rating. He said: “The party he leads has not once managed to inch ahead of the Tories in opinion polls.

“This does not bode well for him, given the unprecedented events of recent months and series of arguably poor judgement calls from the Government.”

He stressed Labour’s gains appeared to be “at the expense of post-election Tory support, and more minor parties like the Lib Dems”.

He added: “Whilst this number gazing is undoubtedly interesting, political commentary can often focus too much on polling.”

The political commentator did however acknowledge Sir Keir’s personal popularity has “certainly grown”, admitting he was becoming more recognised with the “Remain supporting side of the electorate”.


But he claimed Sir Keir had been “repeatedly thrown by unscripted changes” during parliamentary debates.

He added: “In both April and May across the dispatch box he asked his sparring partner questions that had already been answered in the exchange.

“Either he wasn’t listening, or the Keirbot can is prone to getting stuck.”

Mr Harwood also claimed Sir Keir constantly “sits on the fence” when it comes to making the parties policies clear.
