Even before he had got his feet under the leader’s table, Keir Starmer was being attacked, not merely by those out on the right, but by the left of his own party. He was demonised as a mere “Blair Lite”. Memberships were being cancelled (allegedly). There was talk of betrayal, centrism, managerialism, abandonment even. At times like this, the opposition rides to your rescue. The Daily Mail came galloping yesterday evening.
“Here's the angle where he speaks to me. As you can see, he heads over the road and fetches his daughter and we cut. A total non-story being whipped up online by people who love to shout 'fake news' but the tweet has been shared hundreds of times, the truth? How far does that go?” Exactly. And as to those two Tweeters the Mail used, well.
So give Keir Starmer a break. And concentrate fire on the real enemy - the Tories.
