People are raving about Keir Starmer’s keynote speech at the Labour Party conference. Why?
Have a gander at the highlights:
He made a lot of promises. But he breaks his promises, left, right and centre.
Nobody on the left should believe a word Starmer said today. This is a man who called Jeremy Corbyn a friend, eulogised about him during the leadership election, then kicked him out of the party to appease the pro-Israel lobby.

And his promises weren’t even that good. A new company called Great British Energy, that would be publicly-owned?
That’s not nationalisation. That’s capitalism.
Meanwhile, part three of Al Jazeera’s investigation into Labour Party corruption, The Labour Files, has been released on YouTube. Then it was set to ‘private’, presumably due to fears that Starmer and his cronies would take out a lawsuit of some kind. Then copies of it appeared elsewhere, like this one. It says it’s unavailable but if you click “Watch on Facebook” you should be able to see it:
Here’s the direct link, too: https://www.facebook.com/Labourheartlands/videos/792236845345375/?extid=CL-UNK-UNK-UNK-AN_GK0T-GK1C&ref=sharing
The promotional blurb states: “Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit reveals how a British political party that claims to embrace progressive values created a hierarchy of racism that discriminated against its Black, Asian and Muslim members.”
The documentary has created a groundswell of anger against the party:
No wonder @UKLabour wants to stop part 3 of the #LabourFiles . It’s sickening and disturbing that the party is so racist and islamophbic. The party in power is the far right party. No question about it. The question is what BAME and Muslim Community going to do about it.

Here’s an example of what the documentary showed:
Just watched a snippet of the Labour Files 3 on FB…The fact Peter Oborne points out a man was being followed and investigated along with his children/family by @UKLabour without permission was Against the Law should send shivers down your spine, who else did they investigate??

Labour has responded – but it seems that response is being held in doubt:
Labours response to @AJEnglish episode 3 states it has set up procedures to deal with harassment. I think we are all now clear of what that entails.

And still there is no interest from the mainstream media – particularly the BBC, whose Panorama strand ran a hugely controversial documentary about Labour and anti-Semitism in 2019. You may recall This Site’s series of articles debunking what it said (links here).
It seems there may be an agenda involved:
Excuse me @BBCNews (at 10) your reporter, Chris Mason, just said one of Starmer’s tasks was “getting rid of hostility towards Jewish people.” Could you give an example of this please because I believe it simply didn’t exist. #ItWasAScam

In the Spring of 2019 the U.K. faced a major constitutional crisis & political volatility off the charts. Into that vacuum @BBCPanorama broadcast an incredibly one-sided documentary on Labour. Why? Was it journalism? Or was it a political intervention? pic.twitter.com/o3CqmbJah4

Meanwhile, at the Labour conference, a ‘reference back’ referring to a vote at last year’s event, calling for the party to support action to end Israel’s continuing illegal actions against Palestinians, was lost under highly dubious circumstances:
Can you tell if I am correct in saying:
The conference unanimously voted in favour (hence hands up) of action to bring an end to Isreal's illegal actions against Palestinians – am I correct?
However, Angela Eagle said the vote was lost when it clearly was not – am I correct?

And, of course, the purge of Jewish socialists who say “Not in my name” to all these machinations continues:
"If you're a Jewish socialist you're 200 times more likely, than anyone else, to be expelled from the Labour party for hatred of Jews. What kind of Kafkaesque bollocks is that?" – Alexi Sayle
— Greg Clinker (@GregClinker) September 26, 2022
The current case-in-point remains that of Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, newly-elected as the only Jewish member of the party’s National Executive Committee, whose party membership was suspended in suspicious circumstances on the eve of the party conference.
Now Labour has gone further:

So I’m sorry if you heard Starmer’s speech and thought Labour was coming back into the light; it isn’t.
Under Keir Starmer, that party has become a dangerous tool for racists and allies of a hostile foreign power.
It is not fit for government, and never will be while Starmer and his cronies – or their successors – are in control.
