Mass responses and quote tweets hammer ‘Captain Hindsight’ – who said only in February that he didn’t want then-Health Sec to resign
Keir Starmer has received a thrashing on social media after finally calling for Matt Hancock to be sacked as Health Secretary – after Hancock had already resigned.
As of the time of writing, more than 3,500 replies and over 1,000 ‘quote tweets’ had shredded Starmer for his ‘Captain Hindsight’ act, his lack of spine or a semblance of effective opposition – and for actually saying only in February, after Hancock had been found to have acted unlawfully in the award process of massive pandemic contracts, mostly to Tory cronies and donors, that he didn’t want Hancock to resign:
Hancock and the government have since been found again to have acted unlawfully. Starmer didn’t call for his resignation or sacking then, either. But today, at least half an hour after Hancock’s departure was public knowledge, Starmer finally said Johnson should have sacked him – without even mentioning the 150,000+ needless deaths caused by Tory policies or the massive corruption of contract hand-outs and worthless track-and-trace -and was promptly taken apart by left-wingers who, as they say, had ‘kept the receipts’, as the tiny selection below demonstrates.
And those respondents certainly did mention the Tories’ murder tally and corruption – as well as Starmer’s own less than clean hands in his own dealings:
It was yet another appalling demonstration of abject cowardice and non-opposition that demonstrates how utterly unfit Starmer is for the title, let alone the office, of ‘leader of the opposition’ – and, yet again, showed Starmer attempting to piggy-back on results achieved by others in the vaccuum his feebleness has created.
