Why is Keir Starmer ignoring racism and Islamophobia exposed by the Forde Report

Starmer takes the knee for Black Lives Matter: to him it meant nothing more than a photo opportunity. Black lives don’t matter to him – as we discovered when he attacked the organisation shortly after. Now we find he’s turning a blind eye to racism identified in the report by Martin Forde KC.

Anti-black racism and Islamophobia in the Labour Party, raised by Martin Forde KC in his report to that organisation last summer, has been ignored by party leaders including Keir Starmer.

Starmer has not contacted Forde since he published his report confirming that anti-Semitism and other racism had been a battleground between left- and right-wing factionalists within Labour. It seems this was not what the party leader wanted to hear.

Fortunately for him, very few mainstream media journalists had been interestest either:

Yes – odd, that. Mainstream hacks had been able to doorstep Jeremy Corbyn at the drop of a hat, but Starmer seems uncontactable.

Worse, Starmer seems to have ignored concerns raised by black and minority ethnic figures within his own Parliamentary party:

Here’s some evidence to back up the assertion:

Strange how anti-Semitism against pro-Israel Zionists can be such a vital issue for Starmer, but racism against non-Zionist left-wing Jews, black people and Muslims gets a free pass.

    Because it would cost a small fortune to compensate anyone wrongfully accused and labelled by the party. I am one of those apparent antisemites whose name was leaked to national newspapers. The killer is that I actually employ a Jewish girl to help with my disabled son. Her parents were horrified after what they had read about me, all twisted into something they wanted to read but thankfully her parents got to know me and they are now like family.

    My logical conclusion is that the Tories and Starmer had a mutual and dangerous enemy in Corbyn.
    He was standing in the way of their progress and his popularity was in danger of ousting them completely.
    This is why I believe that they came to an “arrangement” to oust the enemy and go easy on each other whilst maintaining the impression of a rivalry.
    Hence the “no doorstepping Starmer policy” – he is being protected.

    I remember at Corby’s final PMQ when Bojob wished him a happy retirement and was visibly shocked when Corbyn said “I’m going nowhere” – I had never been so proud of him.

    I also assert that Starmer appointing Sue Gray BEFORE the conclusion of the Partygate Enquiry was a deliberate gift to Bojob to help him get off on a “technicality” – Why else would he have done it?
    Given his background, surely he would have carefully went over all of the implications before acting, so it has to be deliberate.
