#LabourIslamophobia is running riot – because Blairites are in charge again?

Starmer: draping himself in a Union Flag is only going to reinforce claims that his Labour is virulently Islamophobic.

It’s a reasonable suggestion – Tony Blair was quick enough to attack Muslim countries, back when he was the UK’s prime minister.

The Labour Party swung back towards a balanced approach to religion under Jeremy Corbyn, meaning he tried to treat people of all denominations equally, in line with traditional Labour values.

And we all know how that turned out, don’t we? Pro-Israeli people and organisations (not pro-Jewish; they were just using that as a false flag) accused Corbyn of anti-Semitism with a series of lies.

Now, Keir Starmer is leader. He’s a right-winger, although This Writer isn’t sure whether he has been named as an out-and-out Blairite, Islamophobia is a serious and growing problem in the Labour Party – and he couldn’t care less.

As Aditya Chakrabortty writes in The Guardian:

This is apparently Labour’s new “red wall” playbook: prejudice from some white voters amounts to “legitimate concerns” to be pandered to; prejudice from some Asian Muslim voters is used to tar an entire community.

Labour claimed to be campaigning in the name of Jo Cox, Leadbeater’s sister, who was shot and stabbed to death in the same constituency during the Brexit referendum by a far-right terrorist intoning “Britain First”. Among the last things the MP had been working on was a report into violence against Muslims, yet five years later senior employees of her party were in the business of blaming Muslims.

The failures we see notched up daily by Starmer’s team aren’t just political: they are moral.
