I’m not going to make a fuss because Noam Chomsky called Keir Starmer “Keith”. He knew he was belittling the Labour leader, and rightly so.
But his words about what Starmer has done to the Labour Party are far more damning. In video published by the New Statesman, he said:
“He is returning the Labour Party to a party that is reliably obedient to power; that will be ‘Thatcher-lite’ in the style of Tony Blair.”

The comments of the world’s leading left-wing thinker are important and relevant because they contribute to the demolition of the anti-Semitism smears to which Starmer has wedded himself.
As Skwawkbox states,
The Jewish academic is on record dismissing the Establishment’s antisemitism smears… as a ‘disgraceful game’ and a ‘largely fabricated tale’ created for the sole purpose of destroying Labour as a threat to the Establishment.
There is only one way to show your support for Chomsky’s – correct – analysis of Starmer’s strategy: that is to deprive Labour of your vote in the local elections next month.
If his candidates receive even the slightest amount of support, Starmer will claim a huge victory for his right-wing, Blairite, political trash.
He needs to be told in no uncertain terms that he isn’t wanted – nor are his lies and the hangers-on who mouth them for him.
Will you boycott Labour on May 5?

I have no intention of supporting Starmer and his destruction of the Labour Party. A Labour win is not possible so abstention from voting Labour will send Starmer a clear message that he CAN understand, since nothing else seems to get through to him. What would be the point of putting a right wing Tory Lite party in office with absolutely no idea of how to run a country?
Thanks for the video of Chomsky.
For such a great man as Norman to use such a childish ploy as calling Starmer ‘Keith’ I found very disapointing.
Coming from Wales, should I deny welsh Labour my vote in May elections, will it help remove Starmer, who I distrust and dislike as our Labour party leader, and I want to see him removed.
Or should I keep on supporting Labour in Wales, because I trust and like Mark Drakeford’s leadership.
It’s a dilemma for me, anyone got any suggestions.
Here’s a conundrum then. We have a choice in Powys, but not all do. What if its to choose only between Tory and Labour?
I would say that depends very much on how you consider Welsh Labour.
