BJ is in the perilous position of having his record in Government to defend, in theory it should be IMO easier for the non incumbent Starmer to appear competent from the safety of the opposition benches.Fair enough. Then yes he is, and yes they will. Any candidate for leader with half a brain wouldn't want the job right now, so Starmer it is.
Though at -18, he's only doing a little worse than the -14 Johnson is currently sitting at.
I think the realignment in British (English) politics is bigger and stronger than we think.
