|Lisa Nandy, Rebecca Long Bailey, Keir Starmer - the final three candidates in the Labour leadership election|
'Keir Starmer's approach to 'opposition' has been shredded by members of the Gogglebox programme who watched his evasive performance on last weekend's Marr show.
The show's armchair viewers gave an object lesson in what ordinary people think of Starmer's contortions to avoid taking a position on any issue - and his unconditional support for a PM who has refused even to express regret for the needless sacrifice of tens of thousands of UK lives. It was a brutal verdict.
Everyone, from the working-class to the upper middle, reacted with derision, with one woman saying Starmer had her confused because she thought he was Labour - and another comparing him to 'pasander', the blandest of bland curries.
If Starmer wants to get anywhere near Downing Street, he needs to start actually opposing - and actually standing for something. His centrist allies in the media can fawn dishonestly over him as much as they want, but acting like vapour at best - and worse, enabling a hard-right Tory - has just been shown to be as unpalatable as the SKWAWKBOX has always said it is.'
