Labour leader Keir Starmer was very clearly talking about Everton as he took a swipe at Boris Johnson’s Government in the House of Commons on Monday, 18 July.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, Johnson is set to resign as Prime Minister with the Conservatives currently voting on who’ll take lead of the party and, therefore, replace Johnson at Number 10.
It’s been one scandal after another for the Tories, who are set for a fourth different leader in the last six years.
Leader of the Opposition Starmer likened the Conservatives’ chop-and-change approach to a Premier League football club as he blasted the Tories on Monday.
And although he doesn’t mention Everton specifically, it’s very obvious that the London-born Labour leader is talking about the Merseyside outfit.
As quoted by Adam Bienkov, Political Editor and Correspondent for Byline Times, Starmer said: “Every other year they switch out a failed Prime Minister.
“It’s like a once secure Premier League side burning through managers as they slide inevitably towards relegation.”
Starmer’s absolutely nailed that.
The Conservative party is ruining this country, leading it down a slippy slope as they continue their internal bickering and constant moves to replace their leaders.
Johnson is a liar while most of his cronies are absolutely terrible people who shouldn’t be responsible at all for the wellbeing of the wider public.
A lot of people are glad he’s going but the continual changes are doing more damage than could – which could also be said about Everton.
Farhad Moshiri has spent over half a billion pounds on new players and we were almost relegated from the Premier League for the first time ever last season.
Since Roberto Martinez’s exit in May 2016, Everton have had David Unsworth, Ronald Koeman, Sam Allardyce, Marco Silva, Duncan Ferguson, Carlo Ancelotti, Rafa Benitez and Frank Lampard in charge of the senior side.
That’s eight different managers in six years since Martinez’s exit.
Before Martinez, you’d have to go back to the early 1990s to see eight different names.
Moshiri’s leadership has been a joke. The buck stops with him.
The sooner he’s gone, the better.
