At least if you want to be welcome in the city where Labour holds its conference every couple of years
Labour leader Keir Starmer’s dire Channel 4 interview included the question whether he would welcome support from the rag known to many as the Scum, especially for its lies about the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy and its appalling bigotry. Starmer dodged the question by saying he want ‘as many people to endorse the Labour Party as possible’:
No, Keir – the answer is ‘no’.
Liverpool – joined by some other places – has banned that foul rag and Labour’s annual conference is held in the city every other year. If you want to be welcome there, you don’t welcome the endorsement of the Scum, not even in mealy-mouthed weasel terms.
