Keir Starmer shows us all his Conservative credentials on crime

Last Updated: March 24, 2023By Tags: , , , ,

Keir Starmer turns out to be a fan of Margaret Thatcher – at least where crime is concerned.

But she was the prime minister who set the police on miners, criminalised poll tax protesters and authorised rubber bullets and shoot to kill policies. Is this the kind of law enforcement Starmer is advocating?

Don’t take my word for it, by the way. Here’s Howard Beckett:

Here’s part of his speech:

And here’s a critique showing what’s wrong with it:

There’s nothing behind the big words either:

In making a stand on crime, Starmer presented his enemies with a chance to examine his own record as Director of Public Prosecutions – on which he comes out wanting:

Even the substance of his crime speech falls apart under examination:

Alternatively, is Starmer thinking about the kind of policing favoured in his favourite foreign country – Israel?

Is that the kind of policing that – I don’t know – members of minority groups can anticipate under a Starmer-led government?

After all, look what he does to people from minorities in his own parties. You only have to look at this behaviour to see how he would behave in government.

And what would he do about this?

Could there be a better summary of the situation than this?

Sadly, it won’t stop him grubbing around for votes, even though we all know what he is…

In summary: don’t trust anything Keir Starmer says about crime because he’ll outlaw anything that doesn’t suit his current purpose. And do all you can to ensure that he doesn’t get the chance to put any of his nasty ideas into practice.
