Is Sir Keir Starmer the man, the main man, the man who lead the UK to promised land? If you don’t think that then who are the true opposition to the Conservative Party?
Well, on person on Twitter, Sim Crowther tweeted: his thoughts on who is actually holding the government to account at the moment.
He listed the following:
The true opposition would appear to be…
and Steve Coogan
Fair enough it is a light-hearted tweet, with maybe a bit of truth behind it?
Anger to ‘true’ opposition
One reply said: “None of them wish to change a thing about how we order our economy, and that is the root of all our problems. So no, I can’t agree with you.”
Sim replied: “Cheer up Chris. 3 of them are comedians fer chrissakes!”
Another said: “It’s a decent list but I would counter with: Bernie Clifton Ernst Kaltenbrunner Ken Dodd Rustie Lee Captain Caveman Bobby Riggs The Smurfs.”
He replied: “Captain Caveman straight to Defence presumably.”
Another simply said: ‘all idiots.’
He replied: “Not a fan of comedy and fishing then Mark?”
Another chipped in: “I used to have admiration for some of those people especially Chris Packham who has Asperger’s. Still, a salary from a TV station- it’s probably hard not to go along with the narrative…traitors.”
Again he replied, this time with: “Give your head a wobble! You just called Paul Whitehouse, a bloke who makes a fishing programme and is one of the most talented comedy performers of his generation, a ‘traitor’. Weirdo.”
Sarah wasn’t happy with the list: “All woke hypocrites,” she wrote.
Crowther replied: “Deep breaths Sarah. You don’t need to take it seriously.”
Threw towel in
As the replies flooded in, he had to take a step back, can’t blame him really.
However, he summed up the reaction to the tweet, concluding: “The wider this light hearted tweet goes, the more heavy-hearted, misery-laden oddballs feel the need to comment.”
He did have a lot of support as well as you can see from this example.
