I’m not from the UK, but I’ve been trying to understand more about UK politics because of the election and I’ve seen headlines saying the Starmer has been pushing the Labour party to the center. What does that mean in terms of policies he’s said he will push? Also, now that they have won an overwhelming majority, do you think the party will actually use this opportunity to push the UK more left?

    Thanks for the info, I wasn’t paying attention, but because British politics doesn’t affect me of course, I’m sorry for what it does.

      If you’re not from here, my issue isn’t with you, people aren’t obliged to know the politics of all countries (though wherever you are, something similar is likely happening - the Overton window is shifting to the right globally), it’s the masses of locals who buy in to the idea that Starmer is a leftist that I find frustrating…

        Yes, I understand you, in my country it has not yet taken hold in a drastic way, but you see how politicians with ideas, social democrats at most, are treated in the press like ultra-intractable radical leftists.
