#LabourFake – propaganda op falls flat as existence of new members is questioned

Keir Starmer: yes… yet another own goal.

Well, it has been truly said that the secret of good comedy is timing.

Only on Saturday night (February 19-20) I found myself watching an episode of Dave Gorman’s Modern Life is Goodish in which the star of the show discusses the shady practice of buying Twitter followers, and how you can tell them apart from real people.

Then on Sunday (February 20 – today, as I type this), I discover that suddenly the Labour Party has sprouted a throng of new members who don’t appear ever to have existed before – many of whom have very few followers of their own, which is a dead giveaway, really.

And all this after “Kiethy” was accused of having bought Twitter followers of his own. Around a third of his followers aren’t real people, it seems – possibly more by now, because people who have followed him in good faith may have turned away in disgust.

Amid the scepticism, there’s been plenty of opportunity for humour – of the gallows variety, admittedly. Some of us have been taking great joy in mocking the possibility that Keir Starmer’s new (and horrifying!) Labour policies would attract people with genuine (read: traditional) Labour values:

Once again, Starmer and his right-wing halfwitted cabal have made themselves – and the Labour Party they infest like parasites – look daft.

In their case it is an apt description. But the vast majority of Labour Party members deserve much, much better than this. Sadly, Starmer has changed party rules to ensure that they cannot demand it. The best they can do is leave (and there are far better organisations to join).

Was anybody actually stupid enough to believe this silly propaganda fail?

    Starmer is a weak and manipulated unprincipled empty vessel being filled with whatever his autobots tell him to say and now so too is his deputy – both of them are Stepford MPs as too are almost all the shadow cabinet.

    I am sorry to say that at ‘least’ BJ we know acts always in his OWN corrupt interests. Who knows who Starmer is acting for in his corrupt and secretive endeavours. Makes me wonder who is the most Trumpist between Boozo and Keith but either way, I am no longer disposed to giving Labour my vote after 50 years.

    Obviously it will never be a Tory or LibDem but one can only hope that some inspired change can happen to the political landscape before the next GE to enable me to vote for a better alternative to the 3 neo-liberalist main parties in England where i vote.
