Two-faced #DavidLammy APOLOGISES for nominating #JeremyCorbyn as #Labour leader. Voters will flee

Janus Lammy: January is named after the famous two-faced god, but now it’s been suggested that the month should be renamed Lammy, after the Labour MP.

This Site has praised David Lammy in the past – particularly over his defence of the Windrush generation of UK citizens the Tories tried to deny and deport.

But his latest outburst deserves no support at all. It shows that he is a two-faced fairweather friend who says only what he thinks will help him. We already have a Boris Johnson for that kind of behaviour – and it belongs in the Tory Party, not Labour.

And it shows that we can’t trust any of his previous comments – including those on Windrush.

Voters in Tottenham, who turned out in support of Lammy more when Mr Corbyn was Labour leader than at any other time, will be taking careful note.

And commenters have been quick to point out the flaws in Lammy’s behaviour:

I’ve mentioned the possibility that the voters of Tottenham will turn their collective back on Lammy, now he has revealed himself to be untrustworthy. It doesn’t stop there:

I hope he gets exactly what he deserves from the public, which is nothing – ever again.

I certainly hope his decision to betray Jeremy Corbyn in such an underhand way harms Labour’s electoral chances with Starmer as party leader.

And I absolutely hope that it helps prod the wider party membership to wake up and demand representatives who stand for genuine Labour Party values as laid out by the party’s founders, rather than for their own selfishness.

What can I say? I’m an optimist.

I know there are figures in the mass media that will continue to provide Lammy with a platform, while – I believe the word is “cancelling” – his critics. Consider The Guardian and the way it has refused to allow any mention of the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s opposition of Israeli apartheid in order to present him as a wholly praiseworthy figure.

(Strange that opposition to apartheid is now frowned upon by the UK media that tries so hard to present itself as reasonable.)

The responsibility, as it has always been, is personal.

It is up to all of us to remember that Lammy is not worth our time, and to switch him off or block him out. He has nothing to say that anyone could possibly want to hear.

    Keir Starmer is killing Labour as a Party of the working class. He is making it a party of professional arse lickers like the Tory party..

    Well lammy has been working on LBC so that should have been a warning by itself! I hope the real socialist in labour leave and start a workers socialist party and take the unions with them! labour are finished as far as I’m concerned.

      A new party for the wider population would need a memorable one-word title. Does anybody have a suggestion?

      1. Stephen Brophy

        I’m sure better brains than mine can come up with a one word name but I think four words like The socialist workers party.
