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”.
Starmer today: "We need to make Brexit work"
Labour had a policy to make Brexit work, that included a customs union, close regulatory alignment, protection of rights & standards etc. But Starmer was one of those who trashed that compromise policy in order to undermine Corbyn. pic.twitter.com/4z9kwrUwS3

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.
The only belief Keir Starmer seems to stand by nowadays is that he disagrees with all the beliefs Keir Starmer stood by in the past. #Marr

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?
The dick who wouldn’t let Corbyn make Brexit work is now a byword for hypocrisy.
This stuff is exhausting. https://t.co/3YY2f3p5oH

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.
