Hate the way Gordon Brown was badly advised about changing his image when PM, and his forced smiles just came across so poorly; so much so that he lost his Premiership to a political pigmy in comparison whose path has led the country to be divided and unrecognisable.
Why didn`t Starmer just said no to whoever was advising him - it was cringeworthy . I rarely watch PMQ`s now it is like a Pantomime with both sides constantly jeering each other .

I have only ever seen one Star Wars movie so in the name of science did a spot of character research. It doesn't seem too bad an analogy to me. Particularly as a dichometric morality contrast to Obe Wan Kenobi. This from Wikipedia "the slug-like alien would ultimately fall victim to his own hubris and vengeful ways". We can but hope...

Johnson himself has been particularly direct and unpleasant more than once about Ian Blackford's weight. But there are far better ways to call him out directly on his own adherence or otherwise to the lecturing £multi-million campaign he launched in 2020 telling people (particularly ethnic minorities) to lose weight than by using an indirect reference to the appearance of an obscure movie character* I'm probably with the hubristic gangster interpretation. The slug aspect may just be a happy coincidence. When I was at art college we were told that allowing each person to make their own multiple interpretations, whether what they saw was your intention or not, was a good thing. Perhaps that is what's happened here.

I was mistaken, Shatner is part of the Star Wars community

Personally I think Starmer wouldn't be a bad choice for a Prime Minister, I just don't like him as leader of the Labour Party. If he was a Conservative MP, he'd probably have been PM after Cameron, and likely still the Party Leader.

When discussed recently, the only alternatives I recall being mentioned (being capable of winning over the key floating voters) were Burnham/D.Miliband/Balls (not even MPs) and Cooper (who may not want it).

Having imposed two losers on the Party, this is arguably an area he has some expertise in.

You'd hope the public after the last 3 rotten years of Covid mismanagement and cost of living squeeze, wouldn't buy their bullshit

Surely though, Joe Public would accept a grey, staid, steady hand on the tiller, rather than a lying buffoon?
