🚨| Several of Keir Starmer’s advisors have confessed that the Labour Party is now on the verge of bankruptcy. (@evolvepolitics)

So there you have it. After less than two years in office, Keir Starmer has turned a bank account of around £13 million into bankruptcy.
And he was the Great White Hope of neoliberal right-wing Labour – the “any other leader” who was going to revitalise the party’s popularity and put it 20 points ahead of the Tories in the polls.
Labour is ahead of the Tories in some polls (just!) – but only because corrupt Conservative prime minister Boris Johnson has disgraced himself by breaking the rules he himself imposed on the people of the UK.
How did Starmer drag Labour to this new low?
Partly by launching a wrong-headed crusade against left-wingers/socialist party members, under the guise of attacking anti-Semitism. We all know it’s a false flag because he has been expelling left-wing Jews.
Court cases both by and against Labour, due to this outrageous behaviour, have cost the party millions.
And ordinary members have been deserting the party, having realised that Starmer is turning it back into a tepid version of the Tories that they simply won’t support.
What better example of this behaviour could we have than Starmer’s response to a vote on the Tory Welfare Cap on Monday (January 10)?
There was a vote last night on capping Govt spending on welfare .Most Labour MPs (183 ) abstained
Only 14 Labour MPs voted against. What happened to the party I once believed in?

Only 14 Labour MPs voted against the Wefare Bill.
The main changes in the Bill are reducing the household welfare cap from £26,000 to £23,000, abolishing legally binding child poverty targets, cuts to child tax credits, cuts to ESA, and cuts to housing benefit for young people.

What a shocking indictment against Labour – the party that was set up to stand up for common people everywhere!
You can probably work out most of the Labour MPs who voted against the plan to restrict benefits to poverty levels and increase child poverty, but here’s the list:
Apsana Begum, Richard Burgon, Ian Byrne, Dan Carden, Margaret Greenwood, Kate Hollern, Kim Johnson, Ian Lavery, Andy McDonald, John McDonnell, Bell Ribeiro-Addy, Marie Rimmer, Zarah Sultana, and Beth Winter.
Jeremy Corbyn and Claudia Webbe also voted against it but of course Starmer has thrown them out of his Parliamentary party for no good reason.
183 Labour MPs abstained, including Starmer himself and his Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Jonathan Ashworth – indicating tacit support for the harm the Tory measures will inflict on vulnerable people across the UK.
That is why Labour is nearly bankrupt: if Starmer won’t stand up for us, we can’t support him.
