Even right-wing MPs treat Starmer as an embarrassment at ‘drop-in day’
Keir Starmer’s recent attempt at a photo-opportunity turned out to be yet another low in his notional leadership of the Labour party when not even ten percent of the party’s MPs wanted to be seen with him during his ‘LOTO drop-in day’.
Party insiders say that fewer than twenty MPs agreed to be photographed with the untrustworthy and personality-bypassed Starmer, as even the right-wing majority among the ‘PLP’ shunned him. It’s starting to look like Starmer has served his purpose of hollowing out the party to a shell of its recent self and even the right don’t want to be seen next to a ‘useful idiot’ now well past his sell-by date, particularly as some will no doubt be nursing hopes of replacing him.
The Labour right under Starmer has taken Stalinism to new levels in its war on members and party democracy – and it seems the right-wingers also live by Stalin’s notorious principle that ‘gratitude is a disease of dogs’.
