Why would Starmer give Boris exactly what he wants?
Boris desperately wants Starmer to criticise his approach to Brexit to paint him as the elitist remainer and divert attention from his domestic failings. This has been evident in recent PMQs.
He’s playing it perfectly for now…giving Boris enough rope to hang himself and letting him own this. Once the outcome of negotiations is known, I imagine he’ll start making a lot more noise.
It’s fairly likely millions of voters are about to be disappointed and angry with the outcome – this is the time he’ll strike.
