Another election? The sooner, the better, says Keir Starmer — Interview

He wrote in the Spectator: "Theresa May might just be the person who brings to an end the near-century long era of Red Wales".

The Debrief: What does the serious drop in approval for Theresa May mean for her future as Prime Minister? May is now much less popular than her own Conservative Party. Their election campaign really made you believe they were a party for the people.

Corbyn ran an increasingly effective campaign, energizing the party's base and almost closing the once-wide margin between Labour and the Conservative Party, but he remained a divisive figure for many around the country during the election campaign.

"Look out for our summer campaigns around better governance for Bexhill, making sure our schools are funded properly as well as fighting Tory plans to cut £35m from the Sussex Police budget when we've never needed bobbies on the beat more".

Many pundits are horrified at the prospect of a weak and unstable government, just as the United Kingdom begins negotiations with the European Union over Brexit. This is a Government on notice from the voters.

However, he added "there is a slight danger here that we are viewing last week's election as a victory for the Labour party".

While May negotiates an agreement with the DUP, Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour party, has repeatedly declared his readiness to form a minority government if she fails. With hindsight, this was a very poor calculation. Only Jeremy Corbyn's Labour is realistically offering this.

"I think the prime minister needs to recognise that young people have chose to engage with our democratic process".

But there absolutely must be a lesson for opposition parties here in the Labour campaign's success in drawing out the youth vote.

Brexit probably makes it hard to draw too direct a correlation between Britain and New Zealand, because some of Labour's surge in support will certainly have related to the Leave campaign's benighted victory.

UK Labour's policies focused on increased access to high quality education, universal healthcare coverage, an increased focus on community policing, building more houses and a redistribution of wealth from the richest five per cent of the population to those who are struggling in a bid to reduce wealth inequality.

This is compared to voters aged 70-plus, who voted overwhelmingly for the Tories.

So what are the lessons to be learned from the UK Election?

Theresa May has no mandate to govern, he suggested, and her administration is "on notice from voters".

Second, do not be fooled by the beauty contest of opinion polls.

The Welsh Labour government and councils have faithfully implemented the cuts to services demanded by the Tory government and Westminster.

A change in stance to a soft rather than hard Brexit would be positive for the United Kingdom and for United Kingdom business. There was a late surge towards Labour from younger voters and she did not get the predicted landslide.

Another said: "It was a perfectly pitched speech from Jeremy". Of the two, Corbyn is paradoxically the most "stable" or even authentic, at least in his political views.

The last eight months has been fascinating - and rather dramatic - for global politics. He had real things to say.

"We want to play a constructive part in what happens next".

Is it as simple as saying young people feel the system simply doesn't care for them?
