Labour leader laughed and joked with LBC presenter recently subject of calls by Black Lives Matter supporters for his sacking after “Why do you stay in this country?” comment
Labour leader Keir Starmer has welcomed comments by former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson that he could vote Labour as a sign that “the Labour Party has changed”.
That’s the Jeremy Clarkson whose contract with the BBC ended after he launched an ‘unprovoked physical attack’ on a Top Gear producer – the same Clarkson who was criticised by Tory PM David Cameron for saying striking public sector workers should be “shot in front of their families”:
Starmer made his comments as he laughed and joked with LBC presenter Nick Ferrari – who recently faced calls for his sacking after Ferrari asked black British writer and broadcaster “Why do you stay in this country?“, after Hirsch had expressed concerns about racism in the UK:
Labour has recently faced an exodus of black members who do not believe that Starmer is on their side or takes the racism they face seriously, after he waited months before suspending former headquarters staff after the leak of a Labour report that included allegations of racism toward black MPs – and twice described the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement as a ‘moment‘, which he subsequently acknowledged was wrong.
