Sir Keith will lead Labour into the next GE unless he becomes embroiled in some terrible scandal
I'm talking about the GE after. If the GE in two years is a 92, the new leader will be delighted with a result that makes a 97 much more achievable.

Apparently it wouldn't in the alternate universe that DB9 lives in.
Er, When have I said that? All I've said to YOU is why are you obsessed with this fictitious SNP/Labour coalition when it's been ruled out because according to you Labour just tell lies and this Government is as pure as the driven snow.

As would Andy Burnham/Lisa Nandy/A.N. Other (delete as appropriate)
I don't think Burnham can be leader any time soon as he's not even an MP...

Hence why he might be the leader for the GE after the next one.

If there were need to bring him in if Starmer continues his MIA, He'd get a seat, Like the Tories did with Johnson.

Correct.

Will need to get elected as as MP at the next GE if he wants to get back into the main scene

I see l latest polling on Truss and Sunak show lack of enthusiasm from Tory members for either candidate with a surprising high number preferring Boris. Truss however is scoring particularly highly with the more elderly membership.

A few Tory party members I know are writing in the name of Boris instead of voting for Miz Liz or the Diddy Man on their ballot papers. Waste of time really as Boris is a goner.

The 2nd most likely scenario post the next election IMO is Labour needing a coalition partner or two to form the next government, so rather than hide behind Starmer’s temporarily politically expedient ‘no deals with other parties’ bullcrap it might be useful if you go through the intellectual exercise of what would Starmer actually have to do if he is confronted with the highly possible situation where he needs the help of the SNP to become PM.
if you think SKS will just give up on government you’re deluded.
Game it out DB and if you’re honest with us and yourself, you’ll come to the highly likely conclusion that he will have to strike a deal to become PM.
That being obvious, we then get to the very interesting discussion on what price would SKS have to pay for the cooperation of the independence obsessed, high spending, pro EU and open borders loving SNP? 😉
Any ideas DB?
