Britain's Labour leader Keir Starmer during Prime Ministers Questions in the House of Commons Chamber in London. | JESSICA TAYLOR / UK PARLIAMENT H
As normal politics has been made all but redundant by Covid-19 and what the British government has, or hasn’t done to minimise the effects of the pandemic - I thought that I would take a sideways look at politicians and what drives them to do what they do. In terms of personality and political approach, it seems to me that both Prime Minister Johnson and opposition leader Sir Keir Starmer are about as far apart in style and content as it is possible for two politicians to be. Boris’s jocular bluster, as opposed to Sir Keir’s measured seriousness, is a fascinating clash of what politics should, or should not be about.
