Email is proof – and Starmer must carry the can
Keir Starmer’s defenders have accused Skwawkbox of lying about the email sent by Labour to members begging for cash off the back of Dawn Butler’s principled stand in the Commons.
Butler had rightly called Boris Johnson a liar and refused to retract the word, resulting in her ejection from the Commons chamber – and Starmer had given her no support at the time of publication – unlike his predecessor – although he eventually said she was right four days after she was thrown out, after days of condemnation from Labour members for his failure to speak up.
But while Starmer’s silence was still deafening, the self-inflictedly cash-strapped party sent out an email to members using Butler’s principled stand as an excuse to beg for donations. And Starmer’s bots, drones and sockpuppets said Skwawkbox was lying for exposing it – even though a snapshot of the email was included in the article.
The topic came up last night on Socialist Telly’s political round-up. Here’s what was said abou the desperation of Starmer’s supporters to dismiss the trut – along with footage of one of the emails in full:
What a state the so-recently great Labour party has come to: moral, political and financial bankruptcy, with only the denialism of a few desperate right-wingers and some fake accounts, together with the complicity of the so-called ‘mainstream’ media shoring it up.
