Labour to embrace THATCHER’s economics in new betrayal by Starmer and Reeves

Rachel Reeves (left): she looks like the Tory on the right, and sounds like her. We can only conclude that, in government, she would imitate her as well.

Labour is embracing Thatcher’s economics in a new betrayal by Keir Starmer and Rachel Reeves.

After years of hiding the truth, it seems Starmer and Reeves now feel strong enough to admit that they really are Conservatives in red ties.

Reeves has announced – to the Torygraph, just to rub it in the faces of everyone who still remembers what the Labour Party was originally for – that a future Labour government controlled by her and Starmer would adopt the economic policies of Margaret Thatcher that caused so much misery and harm in the 1980s.

Perhaps they think we can’t remember what happened that long ago. They’re wrong.

According to the Tory news-rag:

Delivering the annual Mais Lecture in the City of London, Labour’s shadow chancellor will liken the economic challenge awaiting the next government to that faced by Margaret Thatcher.

The speech, which paints a big picture of Labour’s economic strategy, is designed to be a deliberate embrace of the private sector and how it can partner with the Government.

Ms Reeves will also make it clear that she and Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, have rejected the economic approach of Jeremy Corbyn, the former leader, and will emphasise the importance of profit-making to the economy.

The message is a sharp contradiction of what Starmer himself has been saying – to the supposedly left-wing Mirror.

There, he has been trying to gaslight socialists into believing that he – the Labour MP who has done more to divide that party, to create division within it by inventing enemies and turning party members against each other for his personal gain – wants unity.

I can only agree with Andrew Feinstein, the Independent candidate for election in the Starmer-held constituency of Holborn & St Pancras, responding to the video clip of Starmer coming out with this claptrap:

Steve Chappell and Jackie Walker deliver the same verdict on the Mirror‘s front page:

“I will not let you down,” lies Starmer. Put together with his words in the video clip and Reeves’s promises to business leaders, it is reminiscent of Thatcher’s own words on being elected into government in 1979.

She quoted St Francis of Assisi: “Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is doubt, may we bring faith. And where there is despair, may we bring hope.”

She brought discord. She was a queen of lies. She betrayed all faith. And she bred despair.

Starmer will do the same if he is given the chance, and so will Reeves.
