Labour is losing votes because Kier Starmer said it was OK for Israel to turn off the water to Gaza.So last time Corbyn lost votes because he was seen as anti-Semitic because of criticism of Israel, now Labour is losing votes for supporting Israel. Feels like the whole situation is lose-lose for everyone involved tbh
He couldn't keep her on when she is so plainly undermining him and telling the world what she'd do 'better'. That would just make him look weaker and weaker until the next election.He should have kept her on. Being fired is exactly what she wanted because she can now play the victim card and get a lot of support from the public in the process.
That said - Looking like a Labour landslide at least, so we'll likely get to see what Starmer can do for 5 years then probably back to Tories again.

Not that it's likely to make any difference, if polling is to be believed, unless Labour unveils a manifesto of legalising kiddie-fiddling for union barons or something.
Whaddaya mean? Starmer IS a Tory.Media barons will start a massive smear campaign against Labour in the run-up to election time, just watch. They prefer keeping Tories in power.
Netanyahu introduced it in 2013, it wasn’t the same as ours. They were offered the choice of a one way ticket to Rwanda or jail. There wasn’t a formal agreement for asylum.Well I never knew:
In copying an Israeli scheme to ship refugees to Rwanda, Boris Johnson's government has turned to the world leader in keeping out ‘undesirables’www.middleeasteye.net
Right wing governments doing right wing things.
While European governments have assessed more than 60 percent of Eritrean asylum seekers as genuine, using tough criteria, Israel has accepted a much stingier 1.5 percent of claims.
Instead, Israel has declared the refugees to be illegal “infiltrators”. Many were forced into Holot, a giant detention camp Israel built for them in the Negev desert, despite repeated rulings from Israeli courts that imprisoning the refugees broke Israel’s own laws as well as international law
I'm so weary of the human race, I'm not sure there are any not-mad humans in existence. Including myself.I can’t see it happening. There’s still some not-mad Tories who would vote against it.
Only takes a piece of legislation to be drafted and for parliament to vote it in. Doesn't have to take long.I don't think they have the time to legislate for something like that. They've less than a year left.
Doesn't work like that m8. The judges don't decide whether Rwanda is safe - they decide on law only. So if the government legislates that Rwanda is safe, even when it isn't, then the judges rule it to be legal.I also don't think what they are currently saying will change what the core issue about Rwanda was for the judges and thus the court.
