Those pesky voters won’t take the knee to Labour


DESPITE the schadenfreude that one may experience when considering the state of the Labour Party, I cannot help but feel a slight pang of sympathy for its supporters.

Imagine how confusing it must be for Labour voters. Almost everywhere they look their Leftist dogma has been adopted. Knee-bending police, sanctimonious celebs, moralising corporations, equity-obsessed institutions, woke media and Twitter mobs – all parrot the mantras of the modern Left. Despite the apparent ubiquity of their beliefs, the electorate consistently rejects the party which most unapologetically embodies these opinions.

Some Labour supporters have come to the conclusion that the party would have gained more votes if only the public understood its values.

Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner claimed voters ‘didn’t know what Keir Starmer stood for’. 

Columnist Owen Jones offered a similar explanation, writing that Starmer ‘should have decided what he stood for. The electorate doesn’t have a clue’.

One can imagine party campaigners complaining: ‘If only those dim working-class folk would realise that we are the party of all the correct opinions’ or ‘do the uneducated swine not know that we are the party of their favourite celebrities, and those clever academics?’

The Labour Party is akin to a bunch of unrequited teenage lovers – certain that they need only to make the objects of their desire see what they are missing.

Whether it is kneeling for the Neo-Marxists, the failure to condemn mindless vandalism, or wanting to keep children out of schools,  there is plenty of evidence of the radicalism at the core of the  party. Voters have been given many reasons NOT to vote Labour, rather than just a lack of reasons to support the party.

Unfortunately for Labour supporters, the public are in fact aware of what the party stands for, and that is why they vote for others.

For most voters, the ‘woke-lite’, authoritarian Tories are preferable to a ‘woke-heavy’, ultra-authoritarian Labour Party.
