So, we've recently had local elections across the UK on May 6.
Mayoral elections, elections for councillors, and the Hartlepool by-election.
Labour did pretty well in Wales, the SNP did well in Scotland, and the Conservatives killed it in England.
Hartlepool, a city that's been Labour for 50 years, voted in the Tory candidate. Hartlepool voted for Brexit in 2016 (70%) and the Labour leader, Keir Starmer, thought it was wise to offer up a Labour candidate who is a Kent-born Remainer.
Labour has seriously lost touch with its voter base, that base being traditional working class people.
It is now a party for students, social activists and the perpetually-offended, and trendy self-hating middle class people.
Labour will continue to get its ass handed to it in elections until it actually starts listening to ordinary people, the voters.
And ordinary people aren't interested in woke nonsense such as preferred pronouns or taking the knee.
There has been much Labour naval-gazing recently following the elections but I'd be surprised if anything is learned. Self-awareness isn't the dominant trait of either the hard-left Corbynites or the trendy metropolitan supporters of Starmer.
