Poll shows woke wars are going to get worse. Why I believe that is worse for Starmer than for Johnson.

Bad news on wokeism. It’s going to get worse not better. More division and more cancel culture.
The hammer blow to peace and harmony is our workplaces and universities comes from American polling guru Frank Luntz, who has spent the last couple of months studying voter attitudes in the UK.
Luntz was a contemporary of Boris Johnson at Oxford but more importantly has spent the last three decades carrying out work for the Republican Party. So he knows what the numbers are saying.
Firstly the voters believe that woke versus non-woke was a greater divide than north versus south, cities versus rural, women versus men and young versus old.
In his research for the centre-Right think tank Centre for Policy Studies he found Britain was increasingly split across these cultural line.

Some 81% of Tories believed that Britain was a nation of “equality and freedom” with only 19% saying it was “institutionally racist and discriminatory” while 52% of Labour agreed with the equality mantra while 48% thought we were racist.
Luntz said within a year cultural divisions in the UK would be as bad as the US. He said; “ The problem with woke and cancel culture is that it is never done.”
So who will benefit politically from wokeism? My bet is that its Johnson.
I can see the voters becoming increasingly irritated about mini-woke in their workplaces and that although they have to go along with it to keep the peace with a colleague when it comes to polling day they will get their revenge.
All this is a massive problem for Starmer. Luntz says for Labour to succeed they should avoid calling for higher taxes.

Perhaps he could have had word with Rachel Reeves, the new installed Shadow Chancellor.
Only yesterday she was saying in the event of a Labour victory (some hope) taxes would have to go up. Why don’t Labour trying saying something that will cheer up the voter. Like taxes will go down under us.
The reality is that they don’t want to get elected. That’s why they picked Starmer for leader.
PS If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
