Leading Brexiteer and ex-Labour MP Kate Hoey told Politics Live today that Keir Starmer has neither the 'charisma or ability' to be PM.  The deputy leader of Scottish Labour predictably disagreed.  Jackie Baillie said Starmer's lengthy speech during his party conference last week set out 'clearly who he is and what he's about'.  Really?  After one hour and twenty eight minutes the truth is that no-one is any the wiser.

Kate Hoey currently sits in the House of Lords as an independent peer, having resigned from Labour following the 2019 Brexit impasse.  She had previously served as the Labour MP for Vauxhall in London since 1989.
