I think once people see the effects of Brexit they will flock to Labour TBH.

I think this is a very optimistic take on the mindset of the British public.

The problem is, Brexit voters are going to blame the EU and REMOANERS

The only way this happens is if the Labour position on Brexit shifts to there being a "good" way to achieve leaving the EU, which is fundamentally not the position of any kind of majority of the different aspects of the Labour party.

The Brexiteer papers are not going to admit to backing Brexit being a mistake.

Yep. Plus the pandemic is going to allow them to blame almost everything on Covid19.

YouGov wrote:Do Britons support Marcus Rashford's campaign to provide food during non-term times to students currently receiving free school meals?

Out of Term Meals: Earlier this week Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford called on the Government to provide meals over Christmas and other holidays to kids currently on free school meals. Yesterday a No.10 spokesman rejected the proposal and said that “it’s not for schools to regularly provide food to pupils during the school holidays”

Asked today, by 54% to 31% Britons back Rashford’s campaign, saying that that schools should provide food for students out of term time

71% of Labour voters are of this opinion, whilst by 47% to 40% Conservative voters are opposed

The only shock is 40% of Tories thought kids should be fed.

I imagine they misread/misheard the question.

I imagine they assumed it was about feeding poor kids to lions or something along those lines

At this point I think most of Westminster probably assume that Boris has or at least attempted to try it on with their significant others.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
