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.
