Ex-Corbyn loyalists approvingly posting hot takes by Rishi Sunak has to be the weirdest thing about 2020.
I think Starmer has done an excellent job. I think it's especially excellent given the sheer volume of unfair criticism levelled against him by failing blogs like Canary and Skawkbox, desperate to paint the guy as some kind of far right lunatic. I don't think he's got everything right - I think he could stand to show a bit more passion and really focus on the Tories more than on Johnson - but compared to what we had before it's night and day. We're level with the Tories for the first time in years, and those stats are only going one way.
I think in a way it's a mark of the guy's competence that those blogs have to lie about him - paint him as pro torture, or dismissing BLM as a 'moment', or what have you - and I think the sooner they go under the sooner we'll have a left wing government again. It's blown my mind how it's always those same blogs who were so horrified that parts of the party machinery undermined Corbyn who've been spending their 2020 undermining Starmer. Irony not big in the blog world I guess.
