Labour now has Five Missions – to replace Starmer’s 10 Pledges that he betrayed?

Last Updated: February 23, 2023By Tags: , , , ,

Keir Starmer has revealed what he describes as Labour’s “Five Missions for a Better Britain” – as foreshadowed by Rishi Sunak (!) in Prime Minister’s Questions.

We’ll come back to Sunak shortly, but first: should we trust Starmer to take these “missions” – whatever they are – forward to a general election?


Of course not.

This is a man who stood for the Labour leadership on 10 “pledges” – all of which he has since betrayed.

The only way we can expect him to honour this latest relaunch in any way is if the promises it contains are so loosely-worded, he can make them seem to mean anything.

So let’s hear what he has to say:

So he reckons he’ll make the UK the best-performing economy in the G7; restore the NHS to greatness; crack down on crime; break down barriers to opportunity; and turn the UK into a “clean energy superpower”.

I think he’d fall at the first hurdle. With sub-Tory economic ideas and an adherence to Brexit, restoring the UK’s economy will be an impossible task.

We already know he’s planning to privatise more of the NHS in an utter betrayal of Labour’s greatest achievement.

Need I go on?

His full speech is here, if you can stomach it:

But let’s get back to Rishi Sunak.

I reckon he made the best comment on Starmer’s “missions” – before even hearing what they were. It’s the last item on his list in this clip:

Sunak’s Tories are no better, of course. Labour is only high in the polls at the moment because the Conservatives have repeatedly self-harmed over 13 years of administrative incompetence.

With crud like this leading our two most popular political organisations, how is the UK ever going to climb out of the hole they have dug for us?

    Nothing Starmer says can be believed or trusted.He has destroyed the labour party. He has turned the labour party into a racist, fake labour tory party that has no interest in working for, or supporting the people.He has proven that. I hope he and the rest of the far right traitors all lose their seats come the next election!

    The best I can hope for is that parliamentary labour party MPs wake up, and boot out Starmer and his two-faced, self serving traitorous cronies….But I can’t see that happening.So we will be stuck with a lying, two-faced, treacherous charlatan and his nest of self serving snakes.
