SIR Keir Starmer faces even more woe after Labour bible the New Statesman dismissed him as boring.
In a scathing editorial, it said: “Britain needs — and deserves — more than a cautious, technocratic Labour prime minister.
“It needs a transformative leader who would use power with purpose.”
They also panned his lack of political agility over Beergate.
It came as ex-PM Tony Blair said Labour would only return to No10 if it backed Tory policies on Brexit and law and order.
In a new report he claimed Sir Keir had to prove he is not boring if he wanted to win power.
Mr Blair called on Labour chiefs to make it clear “we’re not rejoining the EU or revisiting the decision”.
He said they can win back disillusioned voters with a tough biometric ID policy to crack down on illegal immigration.
