Starmer’s shame: no comfort for acquitted Apsana – but fulsome praise for Breeder Boris

Last Updated: August 1, 2021By Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Boris’s buddy: Keir Starmer is more interested in chumming up with the prime minister, as he prepares to have his seventh, eighth or ninth child, than in providing moral and personal support to one of his own Labour MPs.

If he’s more interested in Tories, and in praising Tories, than in supporting members of his own party who have been through extremely trying times, what does that make Keir Starmer?

Apsana Begum has just been acquitted of making fraudulent housing claims after a court heard that she had been a victim of domestic abuse.

The Poplar and Limehouse Labour MP had been accused of three counts of making dishonest applications for council homes to Tower Hamlets Council.

But the charges were dropped – after 18 months of “false accusations, online sexist, racist, and Islamophobic abuse, and threats to [her] safety” – when Snaresbrook Crown Court heard her “controlling” husband was in charge of her finances and she was “shocked” to discover the paperwork was in her name.

Details are available here.

Ms Begum has been widely congratulated for her court victory – particularly in the face of sustained abuse during the entire period the case was open – by such people as former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s wife…

… and by Mr Corbyn himself:

But some were notable by their silence – and it was noticed…

… particularly when Keir Starmer published congratulations to Boris and Carrie Johnson on the announcement that they are to have another baby:

Not only is Starmer’s behaviour questionable; so is that of Boris Johnson in having another child.

He is on the record as having spoken out for population control…

… but apparently he thinks only other people – the poor, perhaps – should practise it:

What an enormous hypocrite.

Who’s paying for this new arrival, by the way?

And then there’s the sexist aspect of this:

If that last comment is right, then not only is Starmer condoning Johnson’s hypocritical, entitled “one rule for me…” elitism; not only is he a sexist for praising Johnson over behaviour that would cause a woman to be shunned and ridiculed; but he is also colluding in the deception – by distraction – of the UK’s population.

I want to know about these Russian donations! And I want to find out more about these vaccine passports too. Instead I find myself having to draw attention to this, because it raises serious questions about Starmer’s status as Leader of the Opposition.

How can he oppose Johnson when he’s so busy helping him?

Will somebody please clear this squatter out of the Labour Party leadership?
