Sarah Morton ‘can’t wait to get proper stuck into Keith’
Liverpool Clubmoor councillor Sarah Morton has resigned her party membership after saying that the ‘crappy’ party had crossed several lines too many and had become a poor imitation of the Tories – and a ‘racist joke’.
Morton announced the news in a ‘late night’ post on Facebook:
Morton is just the latest in a string of councillors to resign and either sit as independents or join other parties in protest at Keir Starmer and his cronies’ lurch to the hard right and contempt for party democracy.
Labour, meanwhile, has haemorrhaged votes in three by-elections in the city after imposing right-wing candidates with no support from local members, holding onto the seats but with significantly reduced vote shares.
