Another example of Starmer not exactly showing that he's a pillar of strength, from Jonathan Freedland in the Guardian:

Brexit once dominated our politics; now it is barely mentioned. The Conservative landslide last December seemed to settle it. Many of the Tory MPs who would have raised the coming no-deal threat have been purged. Keir Starmer is wary of raising it: he has his eye on leave seats, and is in no hurry to play the diehard remainer. He didnít even press the government to seek an extension to the transition.
