Better late than never? Labour demand end to Tory ‘crony contracts’ SEVEN MONTHS after they were reported

Should we be applauding Labour’s demand for the Conservative government to stop handing contracts to firms with links to the Conservative Party?

If so, it should be the slow, mocking handclap that denotes disapproval. This move comes no less than seven months after the so-called Tory ‘chumocracy’ was revealed to the nation.

Did Rachel Reeves have to wait for a focus group to say it was okay to talk about this?

I think so.

And her words ring hollow.

She has said that a Labour government would overturn government outsourcing, bringing contracts back into the public sector, reform Freedom of Information rules to include companies who are awarded government contracts, create an ‘Anti-Corruption and anti-cronyism commissioner’ as a check on government contracts.

But we don’t have a Labour government. And the earliest we can now expect to get one is December 2024.

By then, knowing that Labour is now ruled by focus groups and by politicians who might as well be Tories themselves, we must expect all the policies to be different; Starmer Labour changes to reflect whatever it thinks will get it into power.

If Labour really cared about £2 billion of public money going into the hands of amateurs who did nothing with it, Reeves (or whoever) would have spoken out about it last July, when I did.

Doing it now only lays bare the cynicism at the hollow heart of Starmer Labour.

    Labour imitating the fascist tories – declaiming but doing precisely nothing to change our authoritarian fascist current government!

    For more than seven months the fascist criminal tories have been giving our public money to their greedy unscrupulous fake tory corporate companies! I say ‘fake’ because these corporate companies eagerly took the money but did not provide real PPE which works! So the criminal gang of fascist tory boys with their leader little fascist dictator dick johnson are laughing at us peasants and also the stupid imbecile fake labour party!!

    This is why we have a fascist dictatorship and the labour MPs are doing nothing to challenge fascist tories continuing to commit serial crimes and defraud us peasants of our public money!

    As regards tory puppet Starmer – well he can move his seat in Parliament from the opposition benches to the fascist tory ones because he is the undercover fascist tory hiding in plain sight!

    Wow, the cult of new Labour 2.0 has demanded an end of cronyism or at least until there given a few extra quid to look the other way. I find it hilarious were even having this discussion we know the tory scum are corrupt you can deny it all you like that’s the truth. Will there as the usual way too late to the party intervention do bugger all? Nope, it’s not designed too…

    It’s virtual signalling the usual oh look at us how we’re holding them to account!! In truth errr no you’re not BTW!
