Folly of Starmer’s Tory-lite on show after one councillor quits for Greens and another to Tories
The madness of Keir Starmer’s ‘Tory-lite’ politics has been laid bare in Solihull, where the Labour party is unrepresented on the council for the first time in over half a century after two councillors quit the party to defect to others.
David Cole has joined the Tories, which Marcus Brain has joined the Greens – following a path trodden in Starmer’s own borough just recently.
If people want Tory, they will go for the full-fat version not Starmer’s bland imitation – and if they want left politics and a commitment to the environment, they can’t stay now find it in Labour after Starmer’s cosying up to energy companies and his lurch to near-Tory politics.
Oh for the days when Labour made – and won – political arguments and actually stood for something. When being leader of the opposition meant opposing rather than facilitating and imitating.
