Upsets across the south east have occurred during the local elections as councils such as Canterbury, Thanet and Folkestone & Hythe have fallen from Tory leadership.
As the results are released many Twitter goers have taken to voicing their opinions about Labour and Sir Kier Starmer in the wake of the startling results.
Many are celebrating the Labour wins but are not convinced about Sir Kier’s leadership.
Of course beyond happy and relieved the tories are in the dumpster, but honestly can’t help but turn the volume down whenever Kier Starmer is speaking 😕 #LocalElections

However, some have expressed their disbelief that Sir Kier and Labour have had as many wins that they have in the local elections.
Some are even coming to say that Sir Kier is “delusional” at how he’s winning so far.

Kier Starmer thinks he’s won, how delusional when he’s only the lesser evil of a crop of crud.

Most of the tweets surrounding Labour and Sir Kier’s win highlight how they didn’t vote for their manifesto nor Sir Kier himself, but to get the Conservatives out of power.
The only reason this is the case is due to how poorly the Tories have done, not because Kier Starmer has a better pitch than Corbyn.

On a deeply petty level, I am frustrated that Kier Starmer will likely win a labour majority that he has done nothing to earn. His Labour Party is uninspiring -the party of maintaining the status quo. He has done nothing to earn a victory, but probs will by virtue of tory failure
