Tory stooge Starmer doubles down on threat to expel Labour MPs for criticising Nato

Feel free to post this infographic wherever you like.

In rational times, a Labour leader caught taking orders from a former Tory minister would automatically apologise and resign.

Clearly we don’t live in a normal world.

Because Keir Starmer, who followed the demand of former Tory minister David Gauke by threatening Labour MPs with the removal of the party whip for criticising Nato by supporting a statement opposing the war in Ukraine, has doubled down on his threat instead:

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has warned his MPs that any of them who attempt to attack Nato or indulge in “false equivalence” with Russian aggression will be kicked out of the party.

Sir Keir said there would be “no room” in Labour for anyone who seeking to blame the western alliance for Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

It follows a telling off for the 11 left-wing Labour MPs who were threatened with the loss of the party whip if they didn’t pull support for a Stop the War letter criticising Nato.

“False equivalence” is a logical fallacy that can most easily be defined as “comparing apples with oranges”.

And if anybody is guilty of it, then Starmer is.

He wants to say that opponents of the war are comparing Russia’s behaviour in invading Ukraine with Nato’s posturing immediately before.

But in fact, the anti-war protesters were comparing Nato’s willingness to allow Ukraine to join the organisation – so it could put military bases on that country’s border with Russia, with Russia’s concerns that it was being encircled by members of an organisation hostile to it.

The language used by Nato and representatives of its member states was highly provocative, while ignoring the concerns that had been expressed to them – as Russian President Putin showed when he singled out the idiotic bluster of UK foreign secretary Liz Truss.

Starmer’s claim makes it seem as though these anti-war protesters are actually supporting Russia’s war – which is a clear contradiction of their fundamental position.

But then, he is (apparently) taking orders from the Conservative Party.

Incidentally, Starmer apparently used Ukraine as an excuse not to attend a regional Labour conference – but instead of actually doing anything related to that crisis, he went to Birmingham’s Erdington constituency to try to shore up crumbling support for his right-wing candidate there:

The genuine left-wing alternative – Dave Nellist – is enjoying considerable grassroots support, which is why the mainstream media are doing all they can to cancel him.

As I type this, BBC Radio West Midlands is holding a “debate” with “some of” the candidates. Nellist isn’t among them, having been deliberately excluded, it seems:

So there you have it.

The mass media – headed by your lovable, “impartial” BBC – are suppressing the left-wing candidate in this important local election, while Tory stooge Starmer has been snubbing his party members to go canvassing on a fake lefty ticket.

I only hope listeners boycott the BBC debate and go to meet Nellist at the Erdington Club rally instead.

And then let’s see a huge vote for Nellist rather than Starmer’s puppet on Thursday.

    Interesting what’s going on in the Labour Party with its leadership using every opportunity it can to discipline party members and elected representatives whilst a recent opinion poll has shown reduced support for them. The possible expulsion of six Liverpool councillors for opposing or saying they will oppose council tax increases has made real a chance to set up an alternative to Labour with three other expelled councillors, forming a new block. If it can happen in Liverpool it can and should happen in other cities too.

    The Labour Party is Not Fit For Purpose and belies its name under Suck Here. I welcome this move so that the sooner the true left is precipitated into finding an alternative party, the better results in 2014.
