Mark Dolan says the battle between Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak is the 'lesser of to evils'

My friend and colleague Nigel Farage can do anything. He can deliver Brexit. He can spearhead the broadcasting revolution that is GB news.

He can expose the scandal of the debanking that's happening within our financial services and see the resignation of the NatWest Chief Executive.

He can be mocked by the European Parliament and have the last laugh as we exit the bloc. He can prevail in the jungle and win an army of new fans.

But right now, Nigel risks tainting his remarkable legacy with something that surely even he doesn't want to see.

Five years of a Labour government and secure Starmer living in Number 10 is handing the keys to power to the most woke political party in the country and a leader who campaigned for Jeremy Corbyn to be PM.

Really a price worth paying to give the Tories a bloody nose? I don't think so.

You won't feel it this January as the cold wind blows and as the rain pours down and as the post Christmas credit card bills start to come in. But the country is finally getting back on its feet.

Inflation is falling faster than Prince Andrew's trousers at a Taylor Swift concert. And while Germany and the eurozone has languished in recession, Britain has grown.

Unemployment remains low. The debt is coming down. Investment is up, up, up. Tata, Nissan, Toyota, Siemens, they all want to put money into Britain, with ongoing investment in green renewables which have their place, and a sensible plan to drill for the oil and gas on our own shores so that we don't become customers of Vladimir Putin.

It means that energy security is on the cards for the first time in a generation. Starmer's answer to all of this? No new oil and gas licences.

Betting the house on green energy with a 1970s style state owned government enterprise because the private sector won't touch it with a barge pole. Remember those auctions for new wind farm licences? No takers.

Now, the Tories have had a dreadful 5 years, I will give you that, but if Keir Starmer had been Prime Minister during that time we would have had more lockdowns. For example, he called Freedom Day on July the 19th, 2021 as reckless.

He relentlessly called for more measures, which has since proven to be as highly damaging as they were ineffective. All so that he could do those ridiculous press conferences where he ponced around pretending to be Prime Minister and wanted to look statesmanlike.

And my pal Nigel Farage risks putting him in charge. Now Nigel doesn't get much wrong, and he's a fabulous guy, but on this one I got to part company with him. No one really loves Labour or has much enthusiasm for the cause, and I've never met a Keir Starmer fan.

In my view, he's not so much a politician as a human manifestation of ChatGPT software gone wrong, but the entire Reform UK project, with admirable aims, goals and policies, risks sweeping him to an historic landslide.

Can you imagine what Keir Starmer would do with a 150 seat majority? Do you think we'll have less strikes, even though the Labour Party is bankrolled by the unions? Do you think Britain will cut spending when Starmer is in hock to the public sector, who will expect pay rises galore and unprecedented investment?

Do you think Labour will stop the boats when it's not even on Starmer's list of five missions? Do you think Labour will cut taxes to boost the economy? Elton John's natural hair will grow back before that happens.

Do you think Labour will tackle the insidious cancer of extreme political correctness and wokery in our public institutions and corporations? Good luck with that, when Starmer jumps on every woke cause and can't even define what a woman is.

The Tories are dreadful, a toxic brand, and deservedly so. But in our increasingly presidential system, Sunak is demonstrably the better CEO for the country than Starmer will ever be.

And you've got to understand it is a choice of Sunak versus Starmer. Which of those two is the lesser of two evils? Let's talk about Starmer, a former lawyer whose job it was in the past to take on any case, whether he believed in it or not, something that I think he's now doing in politics.

I made the mistake of watching his first speech of the year this week, and let me just say it's lucky I wasn't operating heavy machinery at the time. And in terms of policy, it was thinner than posh spice on the keto diet.

So Nigel Farage has an admirable legacy, he is a remarkable guy, but I think he risks damaging all of that and the country by saddling Britain with five years of Labour and five years of Starmer in Number 10, which in my view is a step too Farage.
