The conservative party in power for 12 years, with now an 80 seat majority, blames the opposition for not having a plan to tackle issues. Seems governments don’t need to govern or have any accountability.
A Conservative spokesperson said: ‘The Labour party continuously fail to put forward a credible plan to tackle the issues we face. We are doing all we can to mitigate the impact but Labour should call on union bosses to be reasonable, stay around the negotiating table and call off these damaging strikes.”
I’m sadly ignorant of their position on a vote to rejoin the EU. A clear cut costed direction on how they will turn around mental health, cost of living, unify the country etc etc. All I have learned is mere placating puffery,
Read the papers that report what they are saying then,
All of this has been published, just not in the papers that want you to believe that Labour have no policies.
Although Labour are not going to give massivly detailed plans 2 years from GE
Maybe, but I’m not so sure. As soon as Labour starts explicitly that they would reverse Brexit, say, they will lose a lot of votes. Sometimes you need to stay fairly quiet, get the win and then start doing the right thing. I hope that this is their policy right now.
The open goals he’s had are greater than any opposition party I can recall. Has he learned nothing from Cummings? Saying ‘we can improve Brexit’ or we will improve the NHS is toothless and will not cut through the noise the Tories will doubtlessly conjure. He needs to get the media onside and master the internet.
No one is going to reverse Brexit. Do you think in your wildest dreams that the EU would welcome back the self serving fascists in govermnent the elctorate sent to Brussels. The best we can hope for is access to the market with all the compromises we have to accept and no place at the table to make the rules whilst paying full EU fees. I agree with this. I am not prepared to have a Farage or any other troll tying to destroy the EU in my name.
Starmer is right to keep quiet - the right wing press only wants to destroy him.
Oh the EU will have us back alright - after-all, Germany doesn’t want to be the only one propping-up the EU’s lame-duck economies* - but you can be damned sure it’ll be on the most unfavourable terms they can manage to contrive. They’re just not smart enough to see that that would just trigger Brexit 2 instead of having us back on workable terms.
(*For the sake of argument let’s ignore that we’re fast becoming one of those ourselves…)
