particularly interested in hearing from Tories on this, but do you think Keir Starmer will be our next prime minister?

I'm on the centre-right, but have high hopes for him.

he’s definitely got more of a chance than Jeremy Corbyn ever did.

That's not saying much though; Corbyn was pathetic

Probably, especially if Boris' Tories don't remember how to do proper majority government

Not a Tory but I would say that there's a good possibility that Keir Starmer will be our next Prime Minister, especially given how incompetent Boris Johnson's Tory administration from the start, especially at present with the handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Im a Tory and I still think Keir has a good chance of being the next prime minister

and honestly I’m not hating the idea either. I think he’d do a lot of good. Rather looking forward to it

so we still have 4 years to wait
But I dont think so. Starmer has come on record as a socialist, and from what ive seen so far Labour is still consolidating their new base of woke under 30s rather then for the working class. Additionally politics is getting more partisan which I dont think will help Labour.

Also his front bench is poor, people like Angela Rayner & David Lammy are not a crack team, they are awful.

If the trend of our political system holds true and he's still labour head in the next 5-10 years, maybe. Power often bounces between the two main parties, though the conservative party seems to hold on to it for longer periods of time, so it's a difficult one.

Taking politics out of it, Boris has been at the helm of this fight against the virus and had his own personal battle with it. While it's arguable the handling of this crisis is questionable, there is nothing like the feeling of shared struggle between the people and their leader. I think this will aid him in the time to come, which remains more uncertain than ever.

But long story short, I think that a labour prime minister will happen, but not soon.

If he stops sitting on fences and virtue signalling, maybe.

He also needs to get a grip of the Corbinites and unions.

Well it's a pretty low bar to clear. If he can't out-competent the clown that is Boris Johnson and this dreadful 'government' with people like Holiday Diplomacy Patel and City Lawyer Raab, then there really is no hope for them.

Starmer needs a bit more spunk though, particularly at PMQs. The dry, analytical style will only carry him so far. And he needs to ditch people like Angela Raynor and David Lammy (mnot, 2020 (Personal Communication)) because they're going to turn a lot of people off.

I think he has a very good chance.
For the first time in years Labour have a leader who has something about him.

No, I don’t think he will. The lefts become more and more ridiculous with their obsession with identity politics and this is just playing into the tories hands. It’ll only get worse in the next couple years and the conservatives will win. The conservatives have plenty of time to turn this covid situation around and get the economy back on its feet. That said he’s already a hell of a lot more electable than Corbyn and if the conservatives do win, it’ll be by a much smaller margin.

I think if he controls the left of his party well, that will do wonders for him. Most people like Starmer, but not the Labour Party and it's not enough to just oppose the government and think their failings will automatically guarantee a Labour government next time round..

He was a leading human rights lawyer and the DPP before coming into politics. Compare that with Boris Johnson; who was a journalist for different newspapers. Not a very good one as well. He got fired for making up stories.

Potentially.

The Conservative Party will play into Labour's hands by continuing to govern badly, which is not going to be good for Britain as we navigate Brexit and and face an extremely difficult economic future. Even the voice of the conservative establishment The Spectator is running articles calling out Johnson out on his ineptitude.

However Labour need more than that. They need to offer a positive vision of the future that appeals to a wide range of people rather than resorting to the tired Labour troupes. Starmer could learn an important lesson from 1945 when Attlee trounced a popular Churchill.

May I suggest you refrain from voting until you become a little more knowledgeable of British politics?

Voting should be an informed decision rather than your display of ignorance.
