I don't give a **** about his past, he is a terrible leader and he should step aside if he isn't competent enough to do the job he's been given. Sob stories don't make up for inherent incompetence. This is the highest rung of UK politics, not the ****ing X-Factor.

david isn't even an mp, so he is at least 5 years away from being party leader assuming that he wanted to stand for parliament again, which is unlikely, then assuming he won the seat he was contesting, and then put his name forward for and won a leadership election. To say it is unlikely is quite an understatement

Sorry Oliver, just seen this.

I Just feel there's times these sort of interviews don't help.
There's unfortunately a fair bit of negativity building against Starmer.

As is actually usual to any Labour leader that starts to seem to do well at times.

That negativity is affecting his presence.

Maybe this interview will help, or even make things worse.
I don't know.

If I'd been advising him, I'd have steered clear of this interview, with anyone, not just Morgan.

I've not really seen any credible negativity aimed at Starmer tbh. He's only had about a year to "fix' Labour, and that was mostly taken up by a pandemic which is currently being met with a rather successful vaccine rollout, and had a fairly successful furlough scheme...

I dunno, the Tories' success seems more like it's people looking at the successes, rather than Labour failing.

(It's just a shame the furlough and vaccine are overriding everything else, but heyho)

Id imagine its his team who have said "look people dont know you as a person, (insert focus group data that says that) and we need an interview that will have broad appeal - Morgan has that in spades - if he chose a political interviewer i doubt many would watch (as in non-political people)

I think its a smart move and will be a must watch

Yeah I'm open to that.
That makes a lot of sense.
I didn't think of it that way.

To Oliver, too, overlook my previous reservations, I'm convinced now.
