Keir Starmer is reminiscent of Tony Blair by speaking from the heart
Keir Starmer presents himself as a man who knows everything is lined up. There were loose ends for the Labour Party in previous elections, whereas this presentation is reminiscent of Tony Blair and 1997 [general election].
Through his body language, Starmer does come across as a man who really believes that this is his time now, he’s very confident that Labour will be in Government after the next election.
Keir Starmer speaks much more fluently and much more from the heart, he’s a lot more passionate in his delivery than Rishi Sunak and he wasn’t intending to create soundbites and slogans like other politicians do.
‘Stoic’ Starmer handled the test of a protestor really well
Starmer was stoic when he was interrupted by the protestor. He didn’t panic, which is a good test of a leader in the face of potential calamity. He was unphased and didn’t go off track.
Things like this can be good because you see what’s underneath the man and test his resolve. Starmer handled the situation very well, he was composed and recovered within a few seconds.
Overall, Starmer appears presidential and impassioned about what he’s talking about, whereas Rishi Sunak and some other politicians lack authenticity and a bit of fire in their bellies. This conference will score a lot of points for Starmer in terms of popularity and backing among the hardened and faithful Labour supporters.
