Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer has been ruthlessly criticised for his inability to connect with voters. A Times Radio Focus focus group had swing voters discuss the Labour leader and their feelings towards him. One member of the group said: “I just don’t think he has stood out.
“He hasn’t stood out for me so I can’t really comment as he hasn’t pushed any of my buttons and stood out.”
Another added: “I don’t know very much about him, he doesn’t come on the television that much.
“Apart from that, nope.”
Another insisted Sir Keir was the wrong fit for the Labor Party and argued the party had struggled for years.

He said: “I don’t think Keir Star is the man for Labour.
“This is probably why a lot of us have voted Conservative, they have not had a decent leader for a long time.
“I just think of Starmer as Mr Man-on-the-fence.
“He won’t go one way or the other, so he is not the guy for me.

“He had said that we should look out for Meghan but has now the Queen has got involved he is backing off that.
“He just seems to sit on the fence and then jump on the story for public opinion.”
Sir Keir has routinely faced similar criticism from Conservative Party MPs and the Prime Minister.
Boris Johnson has repeatedly argued during PMQ’s that the Labour leader would change his mind on what issues he supports.
Unite the Union leader Len McCluskey earlier this week urged the Labour leader to rethink his policies in a bid to secure a big victory at the next general election as he warned Sir Keir would be left “in the dustbin of history” if changes were not made.
