Starmer’s attitude to schools reminds us his only purpose is to block opposition to the Tories

Suck up: Johnson can keep smiling because he’s got little blue boy Keir Starmer backing him from the Labour Parliamentary benches.

Many may consider that Keir Starmer is a traitor to the people of the UK after his latest display of support for the government he is supposed to oppose.

Starmer has stated – publicly, for all to hear – that he supports Boris Johnson’s decision to reopen all English schools and damn the science.

That means he has set himself against the education-based organisations that have called for a phased reopening of schools – and only if it is supported by scientific evidence.

He thinks he knows better than the experts.

He said he did not support mooted industrial action over safety concerns, after nine teaching unions warned it would be “reckless” to open schools at all once on 8 March.

Sir Keir expressed concerns that children were falling behind, having previously urged the government to open schools as quickly as possible.

Asked whether teachers could be drafted in during the summer to help children catch up, he said: “That may be possible.

“Again, schools staff have been working around the clock. Remember, this time last year they were preparing to work through the Easter break and they’ll probably end up doing that again.

“So they do need a break. There needs to be a long-term plan to catch-up because the attainment gap has got bigger over this pandemic – it was bad enough before it.

“We need a long-term plan for catch-up, but we do need to give credit to teachers and school staff. We need to think of how we do catch-up and close the attainment gap.”

Will Starmer be paying school staff for the extra hours they’ll be asked to work? Will he be compensating them for the holiday time they will lose?

Just because schools haven’t been open, that doesn’t mean staff have not been working, remember!

And his determination to ignore warnings by scientists puts him on the same level as Michael Gove, who famously extolled the virtues of ignorance in the run-up to Brexit (and now we can all see how that is turning out).

Starmer is not a Labour politician in any meaningful way.

He is an infiltrator in the Labour Party, along with all those who support him (including paid staff; some of us knew that from the backstabbing that happened during the so-called “anti-Semitism” witch-hunt when Jeremy Corbyn was leader).

His purpose seems clear: to prevent Her Majesty’s Opposition from being run by anybody who might ever oppose the Tories.

And he is succeeding.

Who could possibly support a Labour Party that does nothing but suck up to the worst prime minister, and the worst government, the UK has ever had.

    We already know that Starmer doesn’t like women (Formby & RLB, his misogynistic decisions as DPP) but now we also know he doesn’t like children much either. He got it horribly wrong, like his boss Boris, the first time “no ifs, no buts…” and is now exhibiting the same lack of judgement all over again. Even Boss Boris has been canny enough to insert wriggle room into his assertions of Paradise soon.

    Stammer the spammer isn’t labour but a person that would best be suited in the Tory party the sooner him and his erk are shown the door then labour can get back to a party that looks after us

    Starmer is an infiltrator who now openly supports and colludes with the fascist tories! When will the labour party members oust this traitor who continues to collude with the fascist tories!

    Furthermore Starmer like little fascist dictator dick johnson is advocating for continuing state sanctioned mass murder of thousands more women and men. Starmer like fascist dick johnson refuses to accept scientific evidence that opening schools will cause another wave of deaths!

    Apparently Starmer and little fascist dictator dick johnson are the real experts – despite fact they are merely male politicians with no specialist knowledge whatsoever in the field of researching pandemics!

    Little England is now a one party fascist state and the labour party are a joke – except they are a very dangerous fake party because they are not challenging the fascist tories but supporting their callous and sadistic policies!

    Time for Starmer to be ousted and he can join his master fascist dick johnson!
