Outcry as Starmer promotes anti-Semite supporter Rachel Reeves into Shadow Cabinet

What a charmer: Rachel Reeves hates people who don’t have a job – and loves a historic anti-Semite.

Keir Starmer seems to be sending mixed messages at the moment.

After practically prostituting himself to the witch-hunters of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Community Security Trust, Jewish Labour Movement and so on – who are keen to see him expel previous leader Jeremy Corbyn from the Labour Party, he has made Rachel Reeves Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.

Ms Reeves is currently infamous for praising Nancy Astor who, besides being the first female MP, was a notorious anti-Semite.

Previously, Ms Reeves was unpopular because she said Labour should be “tougher than the Tories” on people claiming social security benefits. How was she going to manage that – by lining them up against a wall and shooting them?

If this is the quality of Starmer’s ShadCab choices, he can take his new New Labour and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

    Oh no, Rachel Reeves, that doesn’t bode well. I certainly do remember her saying that stuff about being tougher on welfare than the Tories.

  2. Julie Harrison

    I’ve cancelled my labour membership today. Very sad day, but I cannot support a Tory

  3. Red Star

    Well, I’ve now come full circle.

    It was Reeves’ comments on welfare (I was on the dole at the time) that were instrumental in me moving my vote from ‘New’ Labour to the Greens.

    It stayed there until Corbyn won it back for Labour. But it has always been conditional – it was cast not for my local Tory-lite Labour MP or my local Labour councilors who seemed overly eager to rubberstamp austerity cuts, but for the Corbyn project.

    Now that is dead, I guess the Greens will be +1 vote again, unless some truly socialist alternative surfaces.

    And Labour Party members – dont fool yourself about remaining to fight for ‘your’ party. Its not your party, it belongs to the right and has done for years. For a while it looked like things might change… but now its back to business as usual.

    There is no where and no one to go to now if you are disabled or sick. I really hate living in this country.

    amazing – the same people who were shouting down any criticism of Corbyn or any suggestion of anti-semitism within the Labour party and screaming about enforcing party unity are doing their best to undermine a leadership team less than 24 hours old. Why don’t you wait till they’ve actually done something wrong rather than finding low level attack points.

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      You seem to be missing the glaringly obvious point here, which is that they have done something wrong.

      Do you think it is acceptable to praise a rabid anti-Semite?

      Do you think it is acceptable to announce that people on benefits don’t deserve the government’s help?

      That is the only way you could suggest Ms Reeves hasn’t done anything wrong – and that would be unacceptable behaviour by you.

    2. Martin Odoni

      Oh dear oh dear, what a lot of very embarrassing spelling mistakes, Bill! Here, let me correct them for you (corrections in CAPS); –

      “the same people who were shouting down any criticism of Corbyn”
      The same people who CONTESTED UNFAIR criticism AND SMEARS of Corbyn

      “or any suggestion of anti-semitism within the Labour party”
      or any suggestion THAT ANTI-SEMITISM IS RAMPANT within the Labour Party, WHEN THE ACTUAL RATE OF 0.07%-PER-HEAD CAN IN NO SANE WAY BE CONSTRUED AS “RAMPANT”

      “and screaming about enforcing party unity”
      and CALLING OUT FOR party unity

      “are doing their best to undermine a leadership team less than 24 hours old”
      are POINTING OUT WHY ONE OF THE SHADOW CABINET APPOINTMENTS IS AN INCREDIBLY STUPID AND INSENSITIVE MOVE THAT COULD PROVE TO BE A P.R. DISASTER ON DAY ONE

      “Why don’t you wait till they’ve actually done something wrong rather than finding low level attack points.”
      OOPS, THEY’VE ALREADY DONE SOMETHING SPECTACULARLY WRONG AND STARMER HASN’T BEEN IN THE JOB A DAY YET

      May I recommend a really good spellchecker? It’s called, “Writing honestly and not with cheap insinuations in mind.”

    3. Red Star

      Bill S – the new leadership team may only have been 24 hours old, but its individual members have histories which don’t encourage optimism that the whole may somehow be greater than the sum of its parts.

  6. John Hadwin

    We’ve been here before. But please don’t all desert the party and give the Blairites a total victory. Fight on – as Jeremy did for decades – to turn the party into a socialist one again.

    1. Red Star

      I suspect changes will now be made to ensure that Labour will never be a socialist party. The real owners – the careerists of the PLP and the party infrastructure – will have learned their lesson.

      If we want a socialist party, I think we are going to have to ditch any sentimental attachments to Labour and start again from scratch.

  7. Dan

    Looks like I will be voting Plaid at the next election now the hope of the Corbyn years is over. Never voted for Labour before Corbyn became leader and now doubt that I ever will again.
