I was very fond of Windy Miller, windmill owner.

A school mate had that as a nickname - but he didn't have a windmill or many friends

Re: Sir Keir Starmer elected as new Labour leader

My main point was that the guardian don’t know what a majority is and discussing this weeks poll numbers seemed more appropriate here than digging up an old thread.

Only 20% think Starmer should resign which could be a sign of how many on the left never wanted him anyway.

Headline writers these days seem to barely read the article before writing the headline, that seems to be a common flaw in many articles these days. Perhaps it's due to cutbacks in staff and a need to grab click-throughs on the internet.

I think there's still a lot of left-wing idealists in the Labour Party hankering after Jeremy Corbyn which is the reason they joined. Membership figures may be healthy but it's votes at the elections that matter most.

Re: Sir Keir Starmer elected as new Labour leader

I think it's just another stupid online poll, by a company that apparently 'gives rewards' (pays) people to sign up and complete their polls.

Nothing special about it at all . . . unless you're a Guardian editor looking for something edgy to print

A LABOUR PARTY branch has passed a motion of no confidence in Sir Keir Starmer, saying it does not have faith he can win a general election

Looks like sir kneelalot hindsight is losing popularity.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/polit...-corbyn-brexit

I had no faith in liebour when Steptoe said before the last election he had flipped and was now anti Brexit.


As the Brexit Party pulled out of my own I voted Tory and will never vote Liebour again.

Re: Sir Keir Starmer elected as new Labour leader

Prime Ministers are rarely popular while in power, especially ones that lockdown the country three times in 10 months, Im surprised its only 43%.

If Sir Kier was PM and shut the country down for all of last year, would that have made him more popular?
