Why we should now get ready for a Keir Starmer government
The Labour Party is finally showing clear signs that is heading back into power.
Are we now inevitably heading for a Labour government? That’s the big question here at Labour’s conference in Liverpool, following Keir Starmer’s speech to delegates.
His address, which included a surprise new pledge to create a new nationalised energy company, showed a new confidence and belief in his ability to take his party back into power.
The fist is his partial success in redefining his party’s reputation with voters, after a long and divided time in opposition. The second is the increasingly clear collapse in public trust in the Conservative government.
So is Starmer right to believe that he is about to take Labour back into office, or could he now be setting up his party for yet another big fall?
