It’s incredibly how deeply tribal Labour voters are willing to delude themselves in order to prevent themselves from having to think about their political decisions.
They’re currently waging an underhand battle against those of us who do think before voting, on the grounds that any opposition to their sexist, racist and right-wing leader Keir Starmer is “enabling the Conservatives”.
They’re saying that the only possible choice of government is between the Conservative Party and what has now become a pale imitation of the Conservative Party.
And they’re vilifying those of us who are telling them that’s no choice at all and we’ll find a different way, thank you very much.
Worse still are the attacks on those of us who rightly point out Starmers racist and sexist attacks on Jewish Labour Party members who disagree with the violent Zionism he supports – many of whom happen to be women.
Greg Herriett sums up the opposing viewpoint:
Currently it is being vandalised from within to the point where it’s entire reason for existence is dismantled.

Correct. Starmer’s “Labour In Name Only” (LINO) Party does not represent any of the democratic socialist principles on which the party was originally formed – as far as This Writer can tell – and the words on the back of the membership card justify reporting the organisation to the Advertising Standards Authority.
Instead of following the intention of those words… well:
We've had eleven years of the Tories doing exactly what we expected them to do. However we now have an opposition mimicking them, and that's a massive problem. You would expect a Labour Party to lay out their plans to reintroduce fairness and compassion. Not a bloody dicky bird?

The leadership is a huge part of the problem. Keir Starmer is, quite simply, not worthy of anybody’s support:
Starmer u-turned three times on Brexit, u-turned twice on being a shadow minister, u-turned on HS2, u-turned on leadership pledges, u-turned on party democracy, u-turned on unity claim, u-turned on Covid, u-turned on electoral reform. Only a fool would trust anything he says.

And he has surrounded himself with treacherous Red Tories of a similar ilk, so:
Labour’s only pitch to the electorate is that they’re not Tories, & even that’s a lie

It’s something that was predicted long ago. Some of us (not This Writer; I was too young) saw it happening as far back as Neil Kinnock’s term as leader.
Tony Benn predicted the infiltration of the Labour Party by stooges who would protect the interests of the establishment over the ordinary people it was founded to fight for. #StarmerIsATory pic.twitter.com/uxEGQVGtsB

It happened exactly as Tony Benn said. Those who tried to fight it – like This Writer – were accused of bringing the party into disrepute and expelled. In fact, it is Starmer and his cronies who are dragging Labour’s name through the dirt.
I didn’t ask Max, below, to write the following:
I’ll never vote Labour again. Ever. These fuckers are supposed to work for us, but they are the establishment listening to their celebrity base.
— Max 💙 (@PoetryRebellion) November 20, 2021
Max came to that conclusion on the basis of the evidence.
And while StarmerLabour believes it is fine to expel thousands of members on false grounds, he and his goons see no hypocrisy in the following:
WHY does Starmer’s Labour think it can deride and belittle the views of millions of voters who were inspired by Corbyn, and still expect them to vote Labour?
— Tom London (@TomLondon6) November 21, 2021
Add it all together and it doesn’t matter what the bullies say, because a fast-multiplying number of thinking people are responding with this:
I'll never forget the positivity and hope that was the Labour Party under Corbyn. I'll never forgive the saboteurs who destroyed it. #StillNotVotingLabour

What’s your side of it? Do you agree that nobody in their right mind would vote for Starmer’s creepy fascists as an alternative to Johnson’s? Or do you think that a red Tory is better than a blue Tory? Or what?
Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
