Deputy leader made scapegoat for impact of Starmer’s disastrous leadership – when blaming Corbyn doesn’t work, Starmer makes a woman take the fall
Keir Starmer has sacked Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner as party chair.
The move is clearly designed to scapegoat her for the party’s disastrous performance in this week’s elections, but will fool few – Starmer’s drab leadership and lack of substance is matched only by the anonymity and emptiness of his front bench and his supporters. So much for Starmer’s ‘no excuses’ claim that he’d take responsibility.
Typical Labour right: when things go wrong, blame Corbyn – and when that falls flat, let a woman take the fall.
