KEIR Starmer cannot shirk his lion's share of the blame for Labour's misfortunes.
Which brazenly whitewashes his own starring role in the 2019 horror story.
The former " Red Wall " seats had been slowly abandoning Labour for years.
Two issues, Brexit and Corbyn, brought it all to a head.
Who was the architect of the catastrophic Brexit policy, to back a second referendum aimed squarely at negating 17.4million Leave votes? Starmer.
Who campaigned loyally for Corbyn to become Prime Minister? Starmer.
Others refused to work alongside the antisemitic Marxist fool. Not Starmer.
He wanted him in No10 right to the end.
Labour and its middle-class graduate fanbase consider other voters thick.
But they're canny enough to spot a politician trying to rewrite his back story.
Blind to data
HAS any Government buzz-phrase been proved false so soon and so completely as "data, not dates"?
This was Downing Street's claim that its freedom "roadmap" would be guided not by a rigid timetable but by fleet-footed assessments of ever-changing death, hospitalisation and infection levels.
Except they all went in only one direction, relentlessly downwards, as the jabs kicked in — and far faster than the Government and its scientists anticipated.
Our risk is now near-negligible. One Covid death was reported on Monday and four yesterday. Infections are at an eight-month low.
Even gloomy Sage boffins now downplay a third wave or any new danger to the NHS . Yet the unlocking schedule will not change.
We should reopen now. Yet we still have seven weeks of this purgatory left.
Data, not dates? The data is stellar but the Government's dates are set in stone.
What absurd and damaging obstinacy.
IT is utterly shameful that two veterans of the Troubles were put through a decade of hell before the non-existent cases against them collapsed yesterday.
Now in old age, Soldier A and Soldier C have lived in fear of prosecution and jail despite the "evidence" in the shooting of an IRA killer being worthless.
The Government must end the politically-driven witch-hunt against all other old soldiers and fulfil its vow to them.

It is monstrously unfair for only one side of the conflict to be probed 50 years later while IRA terrorists sit pretty, effectively pardoned years ago by Labour.
Enough appeasing of Sinn Fein . End all action against our veterans.
This legal shambles gives Boris Johnson ample justification.
