Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer is currently on fire as a new poll revealed that his Labour Party has fallen badly right under his watch despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party being criticized for handling the coronavirus so poorly.
It was easy for the Labour party to have gained more momentum while the Conservative leaders were been lashed for not being able to put the spread of the coronavirus under control, but that didn’t happen even while Sir Starmer was working hard to make inroads into the huge lead the Prime Minister and the Tories built up following the general election last year.
While Labour party overtook their opponent in some leading polls following the government’s inactive systematic approach to curbing the pandemic latest survey from Savanta ComRes has revealed that support for Sir Keir’s Labour Party has deeply fallen away.
The poll which was conducted from November 6 to 8, inquired, “If there were a General Election tomorrow to elect MPs to Westminster, which of the following parties do you think you would vote for or would you vote for another party?”
Support for Labour plunged four points from the week before to 36 per cent, while the Tories regained the lead from the rivals after remaining on 40 per cent. The Liberal Democrats gained one point to increase their share to 8 per cent. Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP remained unchanged at 5 per cent, while the Green Party increased its share by a point to also reach 5 per cent.
Recently Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party have faced the raging anger of the British people, by placing the country into a national lockdown for the second time in a desperate move to battle the spread of coronavirus.
Labour recently landed into a fresh crisis after former leader Jeremy Corbyn was suspended, after he said the extent of anti-Semitism in the party had been “dramatically overstated for political reasons”, in reaction to the findings of an 18-month investigation from the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), which found the party was responsible for unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination.
Labour was responsible for three breaches of the Equality Act (2010) relating to: political interference in complaints, failure to provide adequate training to those handling anti-Semitism cases and harassment.
But Mr Corbyn hit back at the report, adding the scale of the anti-Semitism problem in Labour was “dramatically overstated” for political purposes, which prompted Labour announcing the party had “suspended Jeremy Corbyn pending investigation” following his failure to retract the comments.
