First quote of the day 18th December 2019

"It is ludicrous to say we won the argument at this election – because we lost."

"If we are truly honest with ourselves, Labour simply did not put forward a credible candidate for prime minister or a believable set of priorities for governing."

"Labour’s shocking and repeated failure to tackle anti-Semitism was totally entwined with the failure of leadership. It’s been extremely difficult for me personally to see how the Jewish community has been made to feel by the Labour Party for years on end."

"We know the NHS was the number-one concern for many voters at this election, not Brexit. But trust in Labour’s ability to run the NHS, as well as other public services, collapsed. Perhaps more than anything else, losing to the Tories on the NHS is the most damning indictment of all."

(Sadiq Khan, Labour Mayor of London, excoriates Labour's failure at the 2019 election, in an interview with the i/Independent which was headlined "The Wrath of Khan.")
