On the same night, a fortnight hence, Laurence Fox is going to get no more than one per cent in London, while Reform UK is going to get no more than one per cent in Hartlepool. Yet look at our official media, the people who have access to the Lobby and to the airwaves.
Half of them lavish attention on the self-appointed voices of this clearly nonexistent electoral bloc. The other half gushed over Change UK before first gushing over Keir Starmer because they thought that that was he was, and then beginning to carp because he might not be.
Either way, though, Starmer is a loser, and objectively a bigger loser than his predecessor. If you say that it takes one to know one, then perhaps it does. Starmer is a loser. Change UK were losers. Reform UK are losers. Fox is a loser. And we need media that treat them as such. The kind that have access to the Lobby and to the airwaves.
