Labour goons are trying to get lefties to buckle under to Starmer. Did they miss the last five years?

Keir Starmer: he’s not interested in accommodating left-wingers in Labour; he just wants them to shut up and do as they’re told.

It must be a kind of psychosis. Former Corbyn adviser Andrew Fisher’s outburst in The Guardian is just a symptom.

After spending five years refusing point-blank to accept Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party and follow the new (which was actually a traditional) Labour Party line, these creeps – and their buddie in the media (Graun) – are trying to get lefties to slavishly follow Starmer:

Labour’s left must work constructively with Keir Starmer and resist the temptation to go “back in our sealed tomb”, Jeremy Corbyn’s former policy chief has warned.

Notice the choice of language. Nobody on the left suggested the uptight right-wingers belonged in a “sealed tomb” (although let’s be honest, a fascist rally would be more appropriate).

He said it was the responsibility of senior figures within the party’s left to reassure new members that Corbyn’s replacement would not lead to their marginalisation.

That would be irresponsible because we have already seen leading left-wing figures marginalised (Rebecca Long-Bailey, for example).

Fisher said Starmer’s 10 leadership election pledges, which included commitments on abolishing tuition fees, taxing the wealthy and public ownership, was “still basically our policy programme”.

Not true – Starmer has already reneged on nine out of the 10.

So I don’t believe Fisher, and I don’t think anybody else should either.

The opportunity for the different sides of “broad church” Labour to come together was under the left-wing leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.

It can’t happen under right-wingers like Keir Starmer because their attitude is as described in this article’s headline: buckle under or bugger off.

They’re not interested in devising a policy platform that is acceptable to traditional Labour supporters – and good for the country as a whole.

They just want to use rank-and-file Labour subscriptions to line their own pockets. In This Writer’s opinion.

    Andrew Fisher, as head of policy, betrayed Jeremy Corbyn, by never putting in any election manifesto, any of his pension policies, said over the years as an MP in his speeches in parliament, and on which he was first elected MP in the lost 1983 election manifesto.

    These were the core pension policies of pension age 60 men and women and increased state pension. Men died alongside us 1950s women by loss of women’s state pension, by men losing Pension Credit from age 60, so creating the newest I Daniel Blakes for decades.

    This would have gained the votes of the 1950s women, as most ladies who posted and commented on social media were desperate for full payment of state pension, and being granted full pensioner status, who were turning 60 or between 60 and 66.

    Also of the 1960s women turning 60 from 2020, with pension age 67 from Labour’s 2007 pension act.

    In 2017 election, women retiring found massive cuts from the small print of the new flat rate state pension, and women retired before April 2016, were left behind on the lower old basic state pension.

    The Grey Vote were betrayed by right wing Labour in 2017 and 2019 elections, and for every decade back to the mid 1970s and should none of the Grey Vote (50 to 100 plus) ever vote Labour again (other than for one Man obviously in the smallest voting area in England).

    New socialist parties have supported Grey Swans pension campaign demands of pension age 60 men and women and increased state pension.
