“Offering insipid support for the government causes people to vote for somebody else or simply to stay at home”
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn politely eviscerated Keir Starmer on Chaannel 4 News on Friday evening, as disastrous results of Thursday’s local elections continue to roll in.
Ever the class act, Corbyn refrained from outright attack – but the end result was just as mercilessly devastating:
When it came to the crunch, Corbyn said – without even needing to mention his name – that the ‘insipid’ Starmer’s craven lack of opposition and eagerness not to offend the Tories was the primary cause of the disaster at the ballot box.
And Channel 4 News appears to agree. Polling by the programme revealed that Keir Starmer himself was the biggest driver for Labour voters either defecting to other parties or simply staying at home and following hi abstentionist example.
Oh, how different the country would look – and how many more people would still be alive who now are not – under the Corbyn premiership that the Labour right immolated the party to prevent.
