WHAT is the point of Keir Starmer?
We thought it was, in part, to offer a vision of an alternative Government.
Keir Starmer’s John Lewis photo-op was toe-curling[/caption]
Starmer seems to think his only role is to catch Boris Johnson out over some perceived failure, ill-judged remark or flaw in his procurement of soft furnishings.
And then to follow it up with an infantile stunt, like his toe-curling John Lewis photo-op yesterday.
Labour’s leader loves playing the “forensic” prosecutor skewering the PM in the Commons. But Boris is handling the gravest national crisis in 80 years.
What is Starmer’s party offering? “Not being the Tories” is not a winning formula, as a new 11-point Tory poll lead shows. It’s 19 points among the working-class Labour once relied on.
So here’s a tip for Starmer: Being the political wing of woke Twitter is a fast track to oblivion.
His MPs would know that if they had paid voters a fraction of the attention they’ve given their phones over the last decade.
ARE more and more Scots realising the case for independence is fatally flawed?
Support for Nicola Sturgeon’s sole policy is plummeting to levels even lower than at the SNP’s referendum defeat in 2014. We’re not entirely surprised.
Nicola Sturgeon has made laughable claims that an independent Scotland within the EU would have matched the rest of the UK’s vaccine rollout[/caption]
We get the romantic zeal for independence, as many who backed Brexit do. But in Scotland’s case so many basic questions — over its currency, economy, the inevitable border with England and the years of certain societal division and disruption — are unanswerable.
Couple that with the SNP’s dismal governing, and Sturgeon’s laughable claims that an independent Scotland within the EU would have matched the rest of the UK’s vaccine rollout, and her cause’s credibility is waning.
The SNP could yet do well in next week’s election. Independence itself is struggling.
War on hate
THE racist and sexist online abuse aimed at black and female sports stars must end.
So The Sun wholeheartedly backs their four-day social media boycott starting today. We’ll be off Twitter.

The Government’s new law to hammer the tech giants when they give vile trolls a platform cannot come soon enough.
Social media can be a force for good. Yet these sites are magnets for hate.
A purge is years overdue.
IT may be cold and wet. But Sun readers must do their solemn duty this weekend.
What onerous task do we ask of you?

Because this Bank Holiday weekend, with bars open for outside boozing all over England, looks like the kick-start our dormant economy needs.
