Sir Keir Starmer Appointed Leader Of The Labour Party
« on: April 04, 2020, 07:41:24 PM »
Congratulations!

At least a decent leader to oppose the Tories.  I say this as a lifelong Tory but its good to have decent opposition to keep the Tories in check.

Have we ever had a leader of the opposition who was a Sir prior to appointment? 
Just my opinion of course but Jeremy Bamber is innocent and a couple from UK, unknown to T9, abducted Madeleine McCann - motive unknown.  Was J J murdered as a result of identifying as a goth?

Has Sir Keir explained what are the serious mistakes made by the government with regard the current crisis, and what he thinks should have been done differently?

Keir Starmer told Sky News ...

ďWhatís important is we support the government where thatís the right thing to do but ask the difficult questions,Ē he said on Sunday.

"We ask the difficult questions not to score party political points, not just because we can but so we can point out what we think are errors so that they can be put right.

"An example would be testing. I think the government was in a mess over testing last week. They've not set a target and our job is to support them in getting to that target.

"But in pointing out mistakes and errors, we hope those mistakes and errors can be put right."

Iíd love to know he would have managed testing if heíd been put in charge a month ago.  Perhaps the government should call his bluff and give him full responsibility for sorting it out.

Is the labour party not supposed to be from the people for the people? First phoney Tony and his mortally corrupt crew now we have a SIR...  He stuck his EU flag to the mast... a re moaner one of them who wanted  a second referendum.   Let us see if he is an independent thinker!

I don't think he is the type to ignore the writing on the wall as previous governments obviously have done http://miscarriageofjustice.co/index.php?board=94.0 but from that starting point I think now is not the time to be 'sorting it out' the time for preparing to do so has been squandered.
I think the best that Starmer can do is as he says, to support the government when he thinks it is appropriate to do so and to make the case when it is not. To do that adequately he must be kept up to speed with developments and options as they occur in this time of National emergency. 

Does anyone know if there is provision for the leader of the opposition to be included in that?

Starmerís mother was a nurse and father a toolmaker...you donít get much more working class than that. He pulled himself up by his bootstraps and made the most of his chances.
