Keir Starmer’s ratings plummet to the same low as JEREMY CORBYN, as Tories rejoice that ‘wars’ are ‘playing into the hands of government’ and destroying Labor

  • Keir Starmer’s ratings have fallen to the same low as Corbynn’s after 14 months
  • Labor leader has net score of minus 29 amid fears of Labor implosion
  • Tories say party is losing ‘woke wars’ and public lecturing on issues

Keir Starmer’s ratings have plummeted to the same low as Jeremy Corbyn, while the Tories rejoice at Labor being destroyed by ‘woke wars’.

Satisfaction with Sir Keir’s performance has fallen to minus 29 – comparable to the figure his left-wing predecessor recorded after 14 months in charge of the party.

Nearly half of Labor supporters think he is doing poorly, and crucially for the Red Wall, he is seen as far less patriotic than Boris Johnson.

The grim findings in the long-running Ipsos MORI tracker survey emerged as ministers argued over the suspension of English cricketer Ollie Robinson over racist and sexist tweets from when he was a teenager – while MPs criticized English footballers who got on their knees.

A senior conservative told MailOnline that Labor was “losing the plot” and lectured voters on “awakened” issues, while ministers “agreed with the public that this is ridiculous”. “It all plays into the hands of the government,” said the MP.

Confidence is also growing in Tory circles about the prospects of winning the Batley & Spen by-election next month – in what could be a make-or-break test for Sir Keir.

According to the Ipsos MORI poll in the Evening Standard, only 22 percent of the public are satisfied with Sir Keir’s performance, a 14 point drop since April.

About 51 percent were dissatisfied with him, an increase of five points. The net rating of minus 29 is in line with the 14 months of Corbyn’s disastrous leadership.

It is also similar to the scores handed in by Tories Iain Duncan Smith and Michael Howard as they led their parties to defeat election defeats.

Only 24 percent think Sir Keir has “what it takes to be a good prime minister.”

That will set alarm bells ringing at Labor headquarters, as it is 13 points behind Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham, who has hinted he wants to take the helm as leader.

A high-ranking Tory MP for a northern constituency told MailOnline: ‘The Labor Party is losing the plot. They can go on and on with all those things. The reality is that most of the audience isn’t there. We just agree with the public saying this is ridiculous.

“People will just keep voting for us because we don’t have a truck.”

Asked about the case of England cricketer Robinson, who has been suspended from playing while tweets are being investigated, the MP said: ‘I was furious about that. Where have we come with those eight years after a teenager said something we would hurt their careers. They are not politicians, they are athletes.

“Are we going to tell people to act like a responsible adult from the age of five? We’re going to ruin people’s lives.’

The MP said the problem with English footballers having to take the knee was ‘ridiculous’.

‘If they want to show solidarity, they can all join hands around a circle. But it is a political gesture that they take. I would never take the knee,” they said.

“It is linked to extremism. It is linked to a violent Marxist organization that hijacked the agenda and the left after they supported it, and most of the country is not.

“Instead of listening to the public, they argue with the public that you should worry about these things. The audience says: no, I don’t have to be. I will do what I want.”

The MP claimed that ‘if the football fields were full, the booing would be louder than the clapping’ when teams went to their knees.

‘The message of what it was about is just gone now, it’s gone. It’s just become tribal warfare,” they said.

“The government just says you’re going crazy, you just have to take a step back.”
