A video clip of a woman confronting Keir Starmer with accusations that he lied about uniting the Labour Party and instead witch-hunted members “in the most vicious way” has been viewed more than three million times.
This Writer can’t say that all the views were by people who approved of what Audrey White had to say – but at least they have all heard the heartfelt criticisms of a leader who has betrayed the Labour Party’s reason for being, which is to look after the best interests of people in the UK who have to work for a living.
Let’s push those viewing figures a little higher, shall we?
Speaking to him in July 2022, when Starmer had the cheek to visit Liverpool after writing an article in The Sun, which had insulted the people of that city by accusing them of causing the Hillsborough disaster, she said he had bought into Tory ideology of opposing strikes and privatising more of the NHS,
It was clearly too much for Starmer to handle as one of his flunkies tried to manhandle Ms White away (and then lied about touching her), and the so-called Labour leader made no response at all.
It’s possible that the clip made its impact because Ms White’s credentials as a political campaigner are far more impressive than Starmer’s; he has only been an elected politician since 2015, remember.
As for Ms White – here‘s Liverpool World:
White led a long campaign against sexual harassment to change employment law after she was sacked in the 1980s for complaining about the harassment of women at the Lord John clothes shop in Liverpool, where she was a manager.
A film, Business as Usual, was released in 1988, where White was played by Oscar-winner Glenda Jackson, who was a Labour MP for 23 years.
White acknowledged to Liverpool World that she had been suspended by Labour ‘at least twice and possibly three times for speaking out’ but maintained she had never been expelled by the Party.
Starmer’s apparatchiks retaliated four days after the confrontation by telling her she had been expelled in February that year… but they hadn’t bothered to notify her.
Ms White said her suspensions were
“for being interviewed by the [proscribed organisation] Socialist Appeal, the other was for tweets, which was because I was saying I had won a libel case against the Jewish Chronicle.”
In 2020, the Jewish Chronicle agreed to pay damages and issued a public apology to Ms White about articles published about her in 2019 which included details of alleged bullying and a plot to oust former Liverpool Riverside Labour MP Dame Louise Ellman.
The Socialist Appeal interview was given as the reason for expulsion.
But it seems clear that this heroine of the Labour movement was targeted by the party’s current figurehead for the heinous crime… of embarrassing him.
This is not leadership.
It is weakness.
Rather than even attempt to address the concerns of a party member with a far more impressive record of representing the people of the UK than his own, Starmer shunted her out of the organisation that he seems to think he owns.
We can only conclude that everything she said was right and he had no answers for her.
And I think that is why the video clip has had three million views – it shows him up for what he really is: a cuckoo in the Labour nest; a front-man for the Conservative Establishment.
