The average pundit’s view has been the election of Sir Keir signalled a change in attitude by Labour’s membership away from ideology and towards electability. Left-wingers will therefore be disappointed to see YouGov’s polling today, which shows Boris’s lead on ‘best PM’ has plunged, err, 3% in Keir’s first three weeks as leader – remaining […]
