Enough Is Enough
75,000 people have signed up on this, the first day. Meanwhile, Keir Starmer has gone on holiday and Labour's poll rating has gone up, but his rating as a credible Prime Minister is already behind that of Liz Truss. Yes, Liz Truss.
There is no political difference between them. Both are cheerleaders for what in the present technological age can only be the intentional Israeli bombing of children, for the impending Ukrainian bombing of a nuclear power station in Ukraine, and against "handouts" to people in the direst need rather than welcome but not absolutely urgent subventions to "hardworking families".
When Truss has had to do some handing out, and she will, then Starmer will oppose her on that basis, and assume that shrieking "The Tories! The Tories! The Tories!" will bring out some tribal vote from the 1980s, before the last Labour Government had had 13 years in which to put things right. Enough Is Enough, indeed.
