Keir Starmer’s Labour is emailing members asking for donations of a suggested £8 – in return for a set of black and white postcards and some colouring pencils.
So exciting does Labour’s new incarnation find this offer that recipients are urged “What are you waiting for… make sure you don’t miss out!” – and offered a special price of ‘only’ £14 if they buy two sets:
The postcards, with their accompanying ‘little pack of colouring pencils too‘, are apparently ‘perfect for a quiet mindful moment‘ – presumably spent thinking about how low Labour has sunk under Keir Starmer and his acolytes and is now suspending elected officers for the ‘crime’ of expressing basic Labour values.
Or perhaps reflecting on the days when Labour stood for hope and had a vision of a better society that drew huge crowds and a mass of engaged and eager campaigners, rather than painfully cheap and embarrassing attempts to drum up cash after driving out thousands of members.
Just a short time ago, Labour meant a prospect of real change. Now it is offering tat for cash – and back courting wealthy donors and ‘quid pro quos’:
Now we know what Starmer’s ‘under new management’ means – a tone-deaf, excruciating and visionless shadow of what Labour should be and would have been were it not for years of sabotage, both by right-wing staff and their fellow-travellers on the Commons benches.
