SIR Keir Starmer believes for the first time he will become the PM now Boris Johnson has been ousted.
The opposition are 11 points ahead in a latest YouGov poll with insiders saying they now see a “path” to victory
One source told The Times: “He always felt that with Boris in place, Labour would end up losing.
“Despite the sleaze, he thought that by 2024 it would have faded into the background and Labour would struggle to win back the seats in the north and Midlands that it lost in 2019. That’s now changed.”
Another shadow cabinet minister said: “They are going to tear themselves apart more brutally than we ever could.”
Another Labour MP told The Sun that Tory and SNP scandals could see them win dozens of seats in Scotland – reigniting their chances of winning.
They said: “The Tories are in a mess in London, while the SNP are all over the place in Edinburgh and Westminster – we can take advantage of that.”
