Is this the reason a Labour leader has attended a party by Rupert Murdoch?

Just another man in a suit: was Keir Starmer attending Rupert Murdoch’s party to take orders from yet another of his bosses in big business?

Keir Starmer has humiliated the Labour Party once again – this time by turning up at a party thrown by that great hater of working-class people, Rupert Murdoch.

What was he doing there?

Murdoch and his so-called newspapers stand for everything Labour should not.

And it is yet another insult to the people of Liverpool who were falsely accused by Murdoch rag The Sun after the Hillsborough disaster. Starmer has already insulted them himself, by penning articles for the same rag.

Former Labour MP Laura Pidcock has suggested an answer:

Fair comment?

If Starmer is courting the support of the right-wing media – including Murdoch’s papers and TV interests – then he is betraying the ideals on which the Labour Party was founded yet again.

He is already being falsely depicted in the media as a viable alternative to Rishi Sunak’s failing, flailing Conservative government but in fact he and his Labour Party are no alternative at all.

They are working for the same businesspeople (or at least receive donations from them); they have the same policies (or at least Starmer has betrayed all the policies that would have made Labour different and has not presented anything new that differs radically from Toryism).

Starmer’s Labour is not an alternative to the current government. There is no reason anybody should vote for him or his right-wing cronies.

    The answet to this is very simple: he’s doing a Blair. He needs Murdoch to back Labour in the GE. We are beyond politics and in the realms of oligarch control of government.

  2. Grey Swans

    Admin Grey Swans pension group’s project is Corbyn’s legacy, with omitted Grey Vote policies to get back what we only gained from Clement Attlee and Harold Wilson, destroyed by Callaghan and Blair and Brown before Lib Dems Pension Minister even worse.

    No other left wing party knows how to gain the vital Grey Vote, the last age group sufficiently turning out to vote.

    A majority of Grey Vote is Women, who are the customers of town centre shops.

    Why follow the crowd of current left wing unelected parties, that cannot beat Starmer, now the darling of mainstream media. They have never won a general election, nor a single MP by-election in recent years.

    Be the small group of minimum 3 people to become Clement Attlee, Nye Bevan and Foot.

    Syriza in Greece lost to the right wing party New Democracy (it is the old one, but never mind) that delivered to the pensioner vote, with policies that sound left wing, knowing full well they are not, with every greater cuts to works and state pensions.

    I realise the men want the glory of the party manifesto being their idea, so I don’t mind you taking all the credit, one little bit.

    The only honesty that this odious, vile man could show would be to turn his back on the Labour Party that he ruined and “Cross the Floor”.
