#LabourConference2021: Keir Starmer’s political suicide note?

Keir Starmer: political suicide.

There are many reasons to be hopeful after the first two days of the Labour conference.

Yes, you read that right: hopeful.

Okay, Keir Starmer and David Evans have gerrymandered votes so that Evans remains general secretary and only white men can get elected party leader.

But in the process they have demonstrated to the whole world that they are liars and that they are corrupt. And we’re not going to forget.

Grassroots Labour members across the UK know that David Evans is not their general secretary, because David Evans excluded and expelled members in his own interest, not that of the party.

They know that Keir Starmer is not their leader, because Keir Starmer betrayed them by stealing their voting rights.

But neither Starmer nor Evans will benefit because they forgot one important thing: Labour is a voluntary organisation.

The members they have betrayed won’t necessarily leave, and they don’t need to actively undermine the current leadership in a way that would allow Evans to give them the boot; they simply don’t need to help the current regime, either.

It is clear that, with Starmer positioning Labour significantly to the right of the Conservatives, left-wing activism has moved elsewhere – so left-wing activists will follow suit.

There are lots of interesting people playing much more interesting games than Starmer. And Labour can’t be the party of working people when it is being run by an upper-class, rich, knighted liar.

Without the activists who give Labour its credibility, the party won’t win any elections.

Starmer and his entitled cronies won’t stick around once they realise which way the wind is blowing. They won’t be able to; their backers won’t tolerate failure.

So his own choices at this year’s conference will probably lead to the end of Keir Starmer’s career. We’re watching him write his own political suicide note.

And then we’ll be able to take the party back.

It’s a long game that could have been avoided if certain people of the left had taken the required steps to excise the party of its right-wing entryists when they had the chance, but there’s no use regretting what is now history.

We can still influence politics in a big way – outside Labour. And the experience will probably make us all stronger.
