Forget the media focus on Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer in this year’s local and regional elections, the reality is that each set of results came about through local issues and local campaigning.
Another red wall seat falls to the party of government, leaving Labour out in the cold once more. The party may have to accept that many of its old seats are simply lost.
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.
