Did the media delay Matt Hancock ‘affair’ story to keep Labour’s useless leader in place?

Hancock and Starmer: it seems evidence of the former’s affair was held by a Tory-supporting newspaper in order to bolster the latter’s position in the polls, because Starmer is considered a better advert for keeping the Tories in power than Hancock.

Here’s a disturbing new wrinkle in the story of Matt Hancock’s affair with Gina Coladangelo and his fall from the UK Cabinet.

According to Jeremy Corbyn’s former spokesman Matt Zarb-Cousin, The Sun – a member of the UK’s mass media that insists on calling itself a newspaper while consistently failing to meet the standards required – had evidence of Hancock’s affair for a considerable period of time before publishing it.

He reckons that… periodical… sat on the CCTV image, waiting for the best moment to use it – a moment that would create a political advantage for its own bosses and their opinions.

So the images – taken by a CCTV camera that had been moved from its original angle – were made on May 6, but The Sun didn’t publish them until nearly two months later, on the weekend before the Batley & Spen by-election.

Zarb-Cousin reckons the intention wasn’t to support Labour and its candidate, Kim Leadbeater (The Sun supports the Conservatives politically) but to ensure that the Labour Party remained stuck with a useless party leader in Keir Starmer – who is doing more harm to the UK’s official Opposition party from the inside than any Tory ever could (Starmer’s future as Labour leader was in doubt as pre-election polling showed Labour could lose the formerly-safe seat but he seized on the wafer-thin majority of 323 votes won by the party to claim a huge resurgence in support):

Zarb-Cousin puts forward convincing evidence:

There can only be one reason a Tory would want to keep an Opposition leader in position, and that is because they believe their own position in government is made safer by him being there.

Of course this puts Starmer in an untenable position because action to keep him in place by the Tories undermines any authority he has as a force to remove them from power…

… but we all know, now, that he won’t do the honourable thing and quit because he wants power for himself.

Does he just want it for its own sake, or is he actually following a plan to destroy the Labour Party? I don’t know.

Does it matter? No.

In the distorting hall of mirrors that is the Westminster media, we can only rely on what we see.

And, seeing that a Tory-supporting rag withheld information until it could be used to support the Labour leader, we must conclude that he is unfit for the job and must be removed.

      Not into this aspect of it, no. The Sun had no way of knowing how many votes he’d get in advance of the election.

    I am quite intrigued at how many people are unable to add together the number of people who voted for Galloway and the number that voted for the Labour candidate and see what the majority would have been had Labour a proper and popular leftish leader.

    Many thanks for this eye opener. Whilst I had thought Starmer as extremely lacklustre I had not realised how valuable he is to the Cons. I put it down to being new in the job and not being aggressive enough against the Cons. My current focus is the fear of a Globalist Coup taking place not only in the UK but all over the democratic nations where parliaments have been contaminated by masonic globalists on a world takeover mission from both sides of the house. This may now be a case of the Globalist also favouring Starmer as their man.
