‘TULO’ meeting a disaster for useless ‘leader’
Keir Starmer is reeling this evening after a mauling by union leaders in what has been described as a ‘car crash’ meeting with the ‘TULO’ union liaison group.
Starmer faced the fury of angry union bosses, who all said that they had not even been consulted about his attempt to railroad Labour members out of their leadership votes by reverting to the old ‘electoral college’ system – with the anger stoked even higher by Starmer’s timidity in calling for a puny £10/hr minimum wage – which would be a real terms cut by the time it ever came in – instead of the £15/hr unions are demanding to recognise the value of workers.
And while Starmer claimed he wanted to find ‘consensus’, those present at the meeting say that he dodged addressing even a single issue raised.
It’s hard to imagine a worse build-up to Starmer’s ‘make or break’ conference – and with the rejection of his acting general secretary looking increasingly possible tomorrow, the actual event might well turn out to be even more of a horror show for Starmer and comedy gold for real Labour.
