UK gov to take over the running of Labour run Birmingham council after the council declared themselves bankrupt.

‘Frying pan’ and ‘fire’ spring to mind.

So the good folk of Birmingham can look forward to better services and lower taxes!

(Isn't that what the Tories usually say in the HoC whenever the subject of local government comes up?)

Have they came out against sunak binning Net zero yet or are they waiting on the focus group?

Labour to stick with Rishi Sunak’s diluted targets on phasing out gas boilers | Financial Times (ft.com)

Labour will not reverse Rishi Sunak’s changes to the phaseout of fossil fuel boilers, the party said on Thursday, in a sign of the acute political sensitivities around heating policy.

A spokesperson for Ed Miliband, the shadow climate secretary, confirmed the opposition party would follow Sunak in weakening UK targets for moving households to lower-carbon heating alternatives.

Why are Labour still matching every populist/rightwards step by the Tories -surely after Truss trashed the economy they shoulda said no further?

Only when the Daily Mail says no further. They should give up the pretence and install Viscount Rothermere in Downing Street

I genuinely believe it’s Starmer’s natural position, and he’s surrounded himself with shadow ministers that broadly share his view.

Starmer, like Blair, is not a socialist; he’s barely a progressive.  He shouldn’t be in the Labour Party let alone leading it.

Starmer ditches Labour policy on removing the charitable status of private skoolz - will that gain them any extra votes or is it to spare the blushes of the Shadow Cabinet?

Just saw that. It's as if Sir Kid Starver has been going through all his policies to weed out anything radical or different to the Tories.

Labour are stomach-churning.

Does labour currently have any policies or firm plans for policies that could be described as “left wing”?

No.

Well, that change of mind didn't take long.

Slight variant of your question, equally as valid IMO.

No.

Labour will definitely win back Scotland and the Red Wall with radical policies like this.

The Red Wall went Boris in 2019. There's nothing left wing about them, they were all massively Brexit-y
