Remember when 20,000 deaths would have been "a good result"? Remember when "there were only more cases because we were testing more"? Well, now we are past 100,000 deaths. And Labour is still five points behind this.
Perhaps it is because Britain is a newly independent state? One of those is often run for decades on end by the same party, the same family, or even the same person. Hastings Banda was still the President of Malawi at the age of 96. Although having a similar taste in consorts, the 56-year-old Boris Johnson has a long way to go to match that.
Or perhaps Keir Starmer is just rubbish?
