There was a distinct lack of trust by the public at large- young people aside.

Demonized by the press

Hamstrung by the shoddy handling of anti semitism in the party

And whilst some of the manifesto was laudable, the question of how we could afford to pay for it was never fully resolved.

And the Damming silence on Brexit, when clarity was needed.

The current incumbent has been caught between two stools, impressive when on the attack, but as yet hasn't unveiled his vision.

I'm not 100% sure he'll even be afforded the opportunity.
