Starmer’s Sun article hasn’t just betrayed Liverpool but the whole Labour movement

Last Updated: October 3, 2021By Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This Writer heard yesterday (October 2) that Labour ‘leader’ Keir Starmer had written an editorial for The Sun but I refrained from commenting in the hope that the negative response elsewhere might encourage him to see sense and withdraw the piece.

Well, that was a forlorn hope!

Of course, he had made no commitment not to write for The Sun. Certainly, while campaigning to be party leader in Liverpool, he had said he would not have anything to do with that rag during the course of his leadership campaign. Some of us questioned that caveat at the time.

Having anything to do with The Sun has been taboo for Labour since the Hillsborough tragedy, after which that paper colluded with the Conservatives to publish shocking lies about the event that smeared and insulted the people of Liverpool.

Liverpudlians have shunned the rag for more than 30 years, and Labour has done the same in solidarity with the city that the Conservatives so badly wronged –

– apart from a handful of arrogant right-wingers who thought they knew better.

And now Starmer has joined their number – fatally torpedoing Labour’s chances of election under his leadership.

Possibly the worst insult of all (I haven’t bothered to read the piece; why would anyone?) is that Starmer has apparently repeated his lie that Jeremy Corbyn led Labour to its worst defeat since 1935. In terms of the number of votes cast for the party, that simply isn’t true…

… and it just reinforces the impression we have of a liar who does not deserve our support.

Don’t just take my word about the damage Starmer has done to the Labour Party:

It is particularly telling that Liverpool’s Labour MPs have condemned their ‘leader’ and his silly Tory-wooing antics:

… along with other Labour MPs whose hearts are in the right (rather than the right-wing) place:

Last word? Try this:

If you are a supporter of genuine Labour values, then this man and his hangers-on simply aren’t worth your time.

Spurn him as you would spurn a rabid dog. Shun him in the same way Liverpool shuns The Sun.

    In my endeavours to start an Over 50s party (policies ages 1 to 100) because Left parties are not winning elections, but getting just a few hundred votes from their focus only on youth vote, I used your information to write a letter to the Liverpool Echo (owned by same company as owns Daily Mirror) in the hope of moral support to begin the Over 50s party.

    Amongst the written manifesto is re-organising mainstream media, once Over 50s party is in government, by your kind votes.

    Certainly helping independent media like yourself to break through into mainstream print newspapers, instead of the media owned by the likes of Murdoch.

    Over 50s party updated 2017 Jeremy Corbyn election manifesto, and added Grey Vote and 1950s to 1980s born ladies pension demands policies, ignored by all other Left parties in last 2 years, and decades into the past. I say updated, because the Tories and private firms have already used chunks of it, but not helping most people, in ever more dire need.
