The saying of Starmer’s apparent hero Stalin seems to hold true: ‘Gratitude is a disease suffered by dogs’
Today, Keir Starmer shamed the Labour movement and party by not only writing for one of the UK’s worst right-wing rags, but using that article to parrot Boris Johnson’s delusion that the UK – with the worst COVID death rate of any country and the worst economic collapse among developed nations – is somehow the ‘envy of the world’.
And then trying to force children back into schools as if keeping schools open is not one of the main reasons, by scientific consensus, that the UK is suffering such horrific, needless deaths.
Did the ‘Fail’ reward Starmer for such a betrayal? Well, as one Josef Stalin – whom Starmer appears to be trying to emulate in his treatment of Labour members – put it:
Gratitude is a disease suffered by dogs.
It’s not a disease suffered by the ‘Fail’, however, which promply launched an attack on Starmer’s excuse for a Shadow Cabinet for their excessive ways during the lockdown:
Of course, if the unthinkable happened and the rag turned its lens on the Tories, it would no doubt find worse – but Labour is the party supposed to be standing up for working people, who are suffering the shittest time imaginable under the clumsy and dishonest hand of Starmer’s bestie Boris Johnson.
If only ‘Keith’ would learn his lesson that the Tory trash press will turn on him at the drop of a hat no matter how much he tries to be one with them, it wouldn’t be so bad. But it’s surely only a matter of time before his pursuit of Tory voters sees him popping up in the vilest of the Murdoch press, the unmentionable ‘Scum’.
Starmer may have said he wouldn’t talk to them during the party leadership campaign, but that’s all dim and dismal history now.
