Feinstein will also accuse Starmer of track record of factionalism in his local party being played out at national level – and says he should step down if he can’t stop enabling the Tories’ destruction of UK politics – in new Red Labour video
Author, activist and former ANC MP Andrew Feinstein says Keir Starmer needs to question whether he’s in the right party, if he’s unable to lead Labour for all its members, in a new series of short videos to be released today by Red Labour.
But that’s far from the most explosive comment that Feinstein, who is a Labour member in Starmer’s Holborn and St Pancras constituency, will make about his MP. Feinstein will also say:
- that iconic political leader Nelson Mandela, whom Feinstein knew and served under, would be unable to voice his own unequivocal solidarity with the people of Palestine in today’s Labour party
- that Starmer has made the party an unwelcoming place for left-wing Jews like Feinstein himself
- that the MP’s track record of factionalism in his local party is now being played out nationally and, worst of all;
- that Starmer is ‘enabling and facilitating’ the Tories’ attack, not just on the people that Labour was formed to serve and protect, but on the whole fabric of the UK’s democracy
Update: the first of the videos has now been released:
