New statement from Trickett blasts Starmer’s small thinking, weakness toward Tories and injustice toward members
Senior left MP Jon Trickett has Keir Starmer’s tepid failure to oppose Boris Johnson’s horrific regime and his abuse of party members firmly in his sights this evening, just 24 hours after the working-class Hemsworth MP called ‘Enough!’ on the dire leadership and drone politics of Jeremy Corbyn’s successor.
Trickett has put out a further statement, this time blasting Starmer’s small thinking, ‘abstentionist’ inadequate opposition and embrace of ‘austerity-lite’ – and the Stalinism of his treatment of Labour members:
Unite’s Howard Beckett, the only prospective candidate for the leadership of the union who has vocally taken on Starmer’s dreary politics, today backed Trickett’s ‘superb’ commentary of last night, opening a new front on Starmer – with the Labour right already preparing their own coup and lining up Yvette Cooper as their candidate to replace him.
Trickett’s new blast establishes him firmly as a voice for the large majority of Labour members already deeply disenchanted with Starmer’s contempt for them.
