Image circulating alleging Christian Wakeford attended parties during ban on gatherings puts Starmer in a quandary
Manchester Young Conservatives tweeted an image they claimed showed Christian Wakeford attending an illegal party during lockdown straight from another banned Tory gathering:
The MYC tweet was rapidly deleted – the claim incriminates the Tories as well – and the allegation may be disproven. But Keir Starmer is already under fire in parts of the media over video footage of himself drinking beer at a Durham gathering during lockdown when he’s calling for the resignation of the appalling Boris Johnson over Johnson’s lockdown party-going.
Could Starmer afford to simply ignore or dismiss the claim without a proper investigation – which might entail withdrawing the whip from his newest MP until it was concluded?
If it turns out to be true, then given Starmer’s record so far, his rush to trumpet Wakeford’s defection in Boris Johnson’s face and his current claims of fairness and transparency while waging an anti-democratic war on the Labour left, it would be hilarious.
Both Keir Starmer and Christian Wakeford have been contacted for comment on the allegation any consequent investigation.
