Ken Loach wants Corbyn to seek election against Starmer’s Labour

Pointing the finger: Ken Loach has a low opinion of Keir Starmer.

Film director Ken Loach has called for Jeremy Corbyn to stand as an “Independent Labour” candidate for Parliament in the next general election, in an interview on the BBC’s Today programme.

He was cut off before making his final point, but he was able to point out that Mr Corbyn nearly won the 2017 general election on a manifesto with plans that have now been wiped off the political agenda by his successor, Keir Starmer – with the result that more than 200,000 people have left Starmer’s version of the Labour Party.

“Starmer has split the party when he promised unity,” Mr Loach said.

His comments echoed what he has also said on the social media:

Mr Loach’s opinion of Keir Starmer has been known for a long time. In January the Morning Star reported that he describes Starmer as a “tool of the Establishment” in the documentary Oh, Jeremy Corbyn – The Big Lie that Labour Party members are currently being banned from watching, up and down the country (a ban that they are ignoring, by and large):

Mr Loach says: “Every now and then, to show that we’re a democracy, there’s a change of government.

“The party changes, but it’s so important from the Establishment’s point of view that the alternative party won’t change anything — and that’s what Starmer is proving now.”

It’s a valid point.

And now people are jumping up to defend Starmer.

Given what Mr Loach has said about the Labour leader being a “tool of the Establishment”, you need to ask yourself: why?

    The usual lies will be spouted out against Corbyn, not only by Sunak’s tory criminal cartel, and the tory controlled media, not only them, but Starmer and his fake Labour, tory party will put the metaphorical boot in as well, with their lies….They will all do their best to see Corbyn fails.
