Despite The Partygate Scandal, Boris Johnson Is Still Preferred To Keir Starmer As Prime Minister

A poll has revealed that Boris Johnson is still a preferable Prime Minister to Sir Keir Starmer.

Boris Johnson, who was dealt a political blow last week when 148 of his MPs voted for a no-confidence motion in him, has seen his popularity eroded since the 2019 election by the Partygate disclosures and the cost of living situation.

Nevertheless, 28 per cent of voters still believe he would make the best Prime Minister, compared with just 26 per cent for Sir Keir Starmer, according to a poll for The Observer.

Boris Johnson also improved his approval rating by three points to minus 27, although he’s still trailing the Labour leader, who remains on minus 6.

In the poll, conducted by Opinium, 35 per cent of respondents also said neither of the party leaders would make the best prime minister.

Half said they couldn’t envision Sir Keir Starmer in the position, compared with just 37 per cent who can, while 47 per cent felt Labour wasn’t ready to form the next government.

Sir Keir Starmer has failed to put any daylight between Labour and the Conservatives ahead of two crucial by-elections, with the governing party closing the gap by just two points in the most recent survey.

Labour are now on 36 per cent of the vote, with the Tories up one point on 34 per cent. The Liberal Democrats and Greens remain at 13 and 6 per cent respectively.

Boris Johnson’s approval ratings remain low after he was fined for a lockdown violation in 2020 and the release of the Sue Gray report which criticised the leadership in No 10, but once again he leads his opponent in the poll of who would make the best Prime Minister, climbing two points while Sir Keir Starmer dropped two since the last survey.

The polling comes just days after the Labour leader failed to make an impact at the despatch box during Prime Minister’s Questions following Boris Johnson’s vote of no confidence.

Deputy leader Angela Rayner later said that Sir Keir Starmer needed to put some more welly into his speeches.

But who out there really believes these polls, or even believes that newspapers are a trustworthy source of information, and let’s face it, when talking about who would be the best prime minister, really, none of them are actually that good and probably not fit for purpose, and why do people keep voting for this worthless man, it’s almost like Stockholm Syndrome.

Some people might think that Sir Keir Starmer is a fool, but what about Boris ‘wallpaper’ Johnson? But then most British people would rather choose a charismatic charlatan over a slightly boring technocrat, which is why we’re where we are now.

And who precisely believes that Boris Johnson is doing a wonderful job?

His term has been a mess from start to finish. One chaotic moment to the next.

If our Government can’t do what it pledged to do then it must either reform the courts with its massive majority or it must quit and let someone else do it.

And this vote is a pile of fertiliser because Boris Johnson is a lame-duck ready for the chop, it’s just a matter of when it will happen, and people need to wake up and smell the coffee. However, the public isn’t getting much of a choice on who they want voted in – Boris Johnson or Sir Keir Starmer, no choice at all!

To be honest a brick would be a more suitable choice than Boris Johnson or Sir Keir Starmer, at least a brick wouldn’t sink us into an ocean of oblivion on a weekly basis.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
