Failing to hold the long-standing Labour seat of Hartlepool (in a region that delivered Boris Johnson a majority in 2019) would raise some serious questions about Keir Starmer’s strategy, credibility and electability.
Keir Starmer needs to tell the electorate what he stands for rather than what he doesn’t stand for. He needs to clarify how he has listened and changed the Labour brand.
There is a class of conviction politician who, over time, become convinced they are infallible, simply by dint of a few good and/or popular acts. And it destroys them...
Keir Starmer will be able to exploit the instinctive loyalty of much of Labour’s rank and file and their disapproval of anyone who rocks the boat. The full expulsion of Jeremy Corbyn, however, if that occurs, will not help.
