Loach expelled from Labour as Keir Starmer expands his witch-hunt

Pointing the finger: after being expelled from the Labour Party, Ken Loach asserted that Keir Starmer is leading a witch-hunt and warned that Starmer and his cronies will never lead a party of the people: “We are many; they are few.”

Keir Starmer’s Labour Party has expelled legendary film-maker Ken Loach for refusing to disown fellow members who were expelled without evidence.

How ridiculous: this pillar of the Left has been unjustly expelled from Labour for insisting that people have been unjustly expelled from Labour.

The director’s I’Daniel Blake was a damning indictment of the Tory policy of persecution against the unemployed – particularly people with long-term illnesses and disabilities. Starmer’s decision to expel him may be seen as support for such policies.

He announced his removal on Twitter:

An expansion of the trumped-up Labour witch-hunt was predicted after an election in which left-wingers retained their hold on places in the party’s Conference Arrangement Committee, meaning motions hostile to Starmer and his leadership will be put to the vote when it takes place in the autumn:

Starmer’s decision to kick Loach out for refusing to join in his contrived, fake, baseless witch-hunt against socialist members of the Labour Party has already backfired in his face, with the social media making a huge show of opposition to this latest stage of the purge.

Here’s just a taste of the responses on Twitter. As I type this, more are being posted all the time:

And what of Starmer himself?

The party leader, who gained control of Labour by lying about his policies to members (he subsequently ditched all of his so-called “10 pledges” in a campaign funded by sources he still won’t name) earlier this week condemned remarks in Len McCluskey’s autobiography that Labour could “go under” – be finished as a major political party and opponent of the Conservatives – under his leadership.

He then went on to support the Conservatives in their decision to kill an apparently healthy alpaca, on the basis of two potentially-inaccurate tests made four years ago.

Anybody can see that this is a man with a serious credibility problem. And he’s storing up trouble for himself. This autumn’s conference could be the must-watch TV of the year.
