It’s looking bleak for Keir Starmer as unions and constituency Labour Party organisations turn against him.
Skwawkbox provides an excellent chronicle of the conflict in Labour between the socialists who represent the soul of the party and the right-wing entryists, led by Starmer, who are working hard to wreck it, and This Site would like to direct you to the information that may be found there, such as the following:
The operative part of this is the wording of the motion that has won unanimous support from Bootle CLP:
Bootle CLP strongly condemns the party leader Sir Keir Starmer for his decision to renege on his promise to the people of Merseyside made during his leadership election campaign, to not speak to the S*n newspaper.
Therefore Bootle CLP calls for the resignation of the Leader of the Labour Party Sir Keir Starmer, on the grounds we no longer have any confidence in his leadership, as he says one thing, and then does the other.
Well, you can trust Starmer to do the dirty on the Labour left – but of course he would never admit it.
Still, isn’t it strange that, days before the election of a new chairperson for the party’s National Constitutional Committee, which is still its only quasi-judicial disciplinary body (even if it doesn’t work properly, as This Writer knows too well), its newest left-wing member was suddenly suspended under suspicious circumstances.
who is a solicitor and a member of the [Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers], was suspended by Labour last week over years-old and entirely accurate posts on social media and in a private group.
The Haldane Society posted a statement on Twitter condemning the attack by Starmer and his administrative sidekick David Evans on Ms Davies and on member democracy… In February, Haldane banned Keir Starmer from membership, saying that he was ineligible because he is ‘demonstrably not a socialist’ and condemned him ‘in the strongest possible terms’ for his conduct since winning the Labour leadership election on a set of false promises.
Starmer fights £20 weekly Universal Credit cut with plan to ‘pause’ VAT – saving 35p per week per person
Perhaps Starmer thinks we should be grateful that he – well, Rachel Reeves actually – has finally announced a policy. But it’s a stinker!
The party plans to ‘pause’ VAT on fuel in response to soaring energy costs. But VAT on fuel is at 5% and the average energy bill for a family of four adults at the moment is around £30 a week.
At a 5p saving in the pound, that’s just £1.50 per week – or 35p a week for each of the four household members.
Starmer’s other idea is a cut in business rates. Businesses pay 20% VAT and most can claim this back in full routinely anyway.
