Excruciating interview on ITV
Just when Labour’s standing as a party under Keir Starmer doesn’t seem like it could fall any lower, it dug down another couple of storeys in an excruciating interview on ITV this morning.
Asked to say what Labour stands for, Shadow Health Secretary Jon Ashworth – still in the position despite years of abysmal performance and rumours earlier this month that he was going to be one of Starmer’s sacrificial lambs after Starmer’s electoral humiliation – told incredulous interviewers that he couldn’t say.
Because it’s ‘confidential’:
Jon, just admit you can’t name a policy because Labour under Starmer doesn’t stand for anything, doesn’t have any policies – except making the changes necessary to bring about the changes that are needed, whatever the hell that means.
Oh, and attacking the left and the members of course. That goes without saying.
