Starmer u-turns over Brexit after he used it to stab Corbyn in the back

Turn again, Keir Starmer, many times a traitor to Labour!

On yesterday’s (November 7) Andrew Marr Show he announced that a Starmer-led Labour government would not try to take the UK back into the European Union but would “make Brexit work”.

It’s a far cry from the policy he forced onto former leader Jeremy Corbyn, who had wanted to do exactly that.

Instead, at Starmer’s insistence, Mr Corbyn had to try to sell the idea of a second EU membership referendum to a UK population that was sick of the whole business (although not nearly as sick of it as they will be when the Tory Brexit incompetence really starts to bite).

As a result, he lost the Brexit-supporting so-called ‘Red Wall’ constituencies, the election, and the Labour leadership – which subsequently went to Starmer.

And now Starmer has announced that his Brexit strategy has changed – to what Mr Corbyn wanted in the first place.

Doesn’t that seem not just a little, but entirely treacherous?

It seems that Starmer deliberately pushed an unworkable Brexit policy onto Mr Corbyn, knowing that it would sink his chances of election?

To This Writer, it also seems that this means Starmer deliberately sabotaged Labour’s chance of winning the 2019 general election.

And to This Writer, it suggests that Starmer should be relieved of his duties as party leader, and his membership terminated; Labour Party members who actively work to stop the party from winning elections are expelled, unless my memory cheats me.

Ah, but he’s the leader and a member of the party elite. He’s the equivalent of nobility – which, in the Labour Party, is a contradiction in terms, isn’t it? They’re all supposed to be equal!

Still, there it is. He’s an elite and is therefore above the rules that govern the rank and file – in just the same way that corrupt Boris Johnson is above the rules and can therefore escape investigation, no matter how shocking his transgressions.

Honest Labour Party members must be cringing with embarrassment at the fact that such a crook is in charge.

Tory backstabbers are sharpening their knives – but who thought the first would be AMBER RUDD?

Look out behind you! Amber Rudd has been the first to undermine Theresa May.

Conservative MPs are conforming to type – backstabbing their leader in times of trouble.

Public opinion has turned against Theresa May over her disastrous Brexit plan, so her MPs are preparing to push her out of office.

But who would have thought that the first person to undermine her would be Amber Rudd?

Ms Rudd is Mrs May’s trusted lieutenant – the one she sent in to bat for the Tories in a TV debate before the 2017 general election while she ran scared.

It may seem doubly strange that Ms Rudd was the first to plunge the knife in, as she won her Hastings and Rye Parliamentary seat with a majority of just 346 in the 2017 general election, after several recounts, and is likely to lose the seat at the next election.

Still, she took to the airwaves to proclaim a “Plan B” in opposition to Mrs May’s “only plan on the table” – a “Norway-plus” option that would see the UK retain access to the EU’s single market and also join a customs union.

This is what she told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme:

Unfortunately for Ms Rudd, it seems she lacks the judgement needed to choose a workable option – and that’s not a good look for a leader-to-be.

Consider:

It seems more likely that Ms Rudd has sealed her own fate, besides launching the first volley against Mrs May.

But with the prime minister likely to lose the “meaningful vote” at 8.30pm on Tuesday, it’s only a matter of time before more Tory MPs line up to take their shot at her.

Jeremy Hunt’s planned promotion shows Tories value TREACHERY above all else

Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt are the Tory fools who have created the crisis in the English NHS.

What a message to give the people of the UK: That under Conservative rule, cheats do prosper and treachery is a valued trait for government ministers.

That is the message being given by Theresa May, who reportedly wants to promote Jeremy Hunt in a Cabinet reshuffle planned for Monday (January 8).

The only thing making her hesitate is the fact that the NHS winter crisis that he has engineered – at her request – might cast a shadow over her plan to make him First Minister, replacing the disgraced Damian Green as her de facto deputy prime minister.

Despite all her best attempts at rigging media coverage of the catastrophe, public opinion is that Mr Hunt has made a pig’s ear of managing the health service in England.

With that in mind, why would the British people accept him in the second most responsible job in government?

Here’s how the Torygraph has reported Mrs May’s dilemma:

Hunt when she reshuffles her Cabinet next week because of the worsening winter crisis in the NHS, The Daily Telegraph understands.

Mrs May wants the Health Secretary to take over the role of de facto deputy prime minister vacated by Damian Green last month but has been warned that the timing could not be worse.

She will spend the weekend deciding whether to keep Mr Hunt in his post until the spring, rather than moving him as part of a reshuffle aimed at refreshing the public face of the Government.

It’s ludicrous, isn’t it?

She has to try “refreshing the public face of the government” because so many of her Cabinet members have been sacked after a series of scandals late last year.

None of them are considered trustworthy by the British public, and she is thought to be the worst of all.

As for Mr Hunt – well, consider the reactions to his reported promotion on the social media:

Mrs May can dress Jeremy Hunt up as prettily as she likes, but she’ll never cover up his stink.

There’s no place in politics for Blairites who are disgruntled by their abrupt loss of influence

Telling it as it is: Michael Meacher has more to say about the current Labour Party than yesterday's man, Tony Blair.

Telling it as it is: Michael Meacher has more to say about the current Labour Party than yesterday’s man, Tony Blair.

Michael Meacher has it right (as usual). In the same Guardian article that publicises Tony Blair’s latest attack on Jeremy Corbyn, he explained why the former Prime Minister and his followers are so disgruntled by the return to real Labour Party values he represents:

“Understandably,” he said, “the Blairite faction is disconcerted by their abrupt loss of power.”

That is the meaning of everything that has been said by these people – by Tony Blair, by Alastair Campbell, by Simon Danczuk, by John Mann, and by all the others who are bleating that the democratic system of electing a new leader – that they all supported – should be halted because it might mean they’ll have to follow a real socialist instead of a Tory in a red tie.

Blair’s comments aren’t worth repeating because they contain nothing of substance at all. “The party is walking eyes shut, arms outstretched over the cliff’s edge to the jagged rocks below,” is it, Tony? What makes you say that? What particular policies of Corbyn’s will cause the catastrophe you have made up inside your mind? You don’t say, so we shouldn’t pay any attention.

Blair appears to support calls for New Labour hangers-on to split from the party in the event of a Corbyn win: “This is not a moment to refrain from disturbing the serenity of the walk on the basis it causes ‘disunity’.”

This, of course, runs against party discipline and Mr Meacher was right to counter it: “They have a duty to remain loyal to the Labour party as the left has always done.”

Again, Meacher is right; Blair is wrong.

Let’s have a bit more of Meacher. Referring to the rise of Corbyn, he said: “It is the biggest non-revolutionary upturning of the social order in modern British politics.

“The Blairite coup of the mid-1990s hijacked the party to the Tory ideology of ‘leave it all to the markets and let the state get out of the way’, and when asked what was her greatest achievement, Mrs Thatcher triumphantly replied, ‘New Labour.’

“After 20 years of swashbuckling capitalism, the people of Britain have said enough, and Labour is finally regaining its real principles and values.”

Blairites in the Parliamentary Labour Party have a stark choice, if Corbyn is elected by the party membership they claim to serve: They can knuckle under and toe the party’s new line, as the left-wingers have been forced to do – in the name of party unity, Tony Blair – for the last 20 years…

Or they can sling their hook.

That doesn’t mean resigning the Labour whip and sloping off to the Liberal Democrats (or wherever), as Shirley Williams has suggested.

It means resigning their position as MPs and making way for the election of somebody who will support Labour’s new direction.

The behaviour of men like Danczuk and Mann is nothing less than treachery against their party – meaning the people who voted them into Parliament, a majority of whom – it seems – want Jeremy Corbyn to be the new Labour leader.

The people are speaking. They want the New Labour dinosaur to go into extinction. Let us hope the hangers-on get the message.
