That's like 'Yeah whatever...' news.

Still Corbyn is gone and that is excellent news.

Crucially Starmer's supporters have won control of the NEC, Labour's ruling body - as Corbyn's team found 2015-2017, trying to run Party without being able to rely on NEC control was v hard, Starmer's team delighted they have got it, didn't expect it at the start

Luxury.

i expect a Labour leader to come fromt gutter,be dressed in rags and own at least one ferret,they must live in a council house and have been on benefits all of their adult life, ride an old bicycle in clogs and drink brown ale.

oh and don't forget the flat cap and string vest.

Theresa May left a huge political vacuum and Boris Johnson was elected by his own party and the country because of he was best placed to fulfill it by his party and a considerable part of the electorate..

Good luck to Starmer, although frankly he couldn't do any worse!

Re: Sir Keir Starmer elected as new Labour leader

What's more, Boris should be able to wipe the floor with Starmer due to his undemocratic behaviour in the dark days of Brexit.

However, in the short term, parliamentary solidarity on Coronavirus is a requirement.

Boris's actions were unlawful, not illegal...
