The next election is Labour’s to lose, so it’s time they start explaining what they can offer

February 25, 2023 6:00 am(Updated 6:01 am)

Good morning. The Labour Party is currently on course for a landslide victory at the next General Election – and the extraordinary thing is that Keir Starmer’s personal ratings are lukewarm at best.

Few voters dislike him, yet few strongly support him. He is mastering the art of being boring, trying to project competence while struggling to excite the electorate.

Opinion poll leads often narrow in the run-up to election day.

It is striking that voters say they prefer Labour across many major policy areas, including traditional Conservative priorities like crime, security, defence and Brexit.

Rishi Sunak is struggling to make inroads into Labour’s lead.

The next election is Starmer’s to lose, which brings its own peculiar pressures.

Time for Labour to start spelling out what sort of government it would offer Britan.
