Starmer-Evans party’s chaos and incompetence on show again
The incompetence, chaos and malignancy of the Labour party under its current regime can’t help resurfacing, like boiling water (or more likely p***) under a poorly fitted pan lid.
The right’s malevolent and hypocritical purge of left-wingers continues – especially those who support Palestinians and even more especially Jews who support Palestinians, or who happen to Muslims – but the fundamental absence of substance in the party, along with self-inflicted data breaches and just sheer incompetence, means that chaos and foolishness dog every step.
At the same time, so great is the disgust and disillusionment with the right-wing regime and the obvious lack of values and decent politics that the party is struggling to find people to stand under a Labour banner in the fast-approaching local elections.
Put these factors together and we have a party that is expelling people – including current councillors – and then begging them to put themselves forward to stand.
In Liverpool, Cllr Sam Gorst and filmmaker and ex-councillor Phil Maxwell have both been expelled from the party for pro-Palestinian comments, pointing out that the ‘Labour antisemitism scandal’ was vastly exaggerated and defending Labour’s previous leader against nonsensical right-wing accusations.
But now Labour has written to both men asking them to put themselves forward to stand as candidates:
Do you want to be considered for the panel of candidate’s for the forthcoming by-elections?
If yes please return the attached application form by Thursday 3rd February to Sheila_murphy@labour.org.uk.
If you applied for the panel for the by elections last year and are still interested please let me know by emial [sic] (I already have your application so you won’t need to send a new one in) Interviews will take place via Zoom the following week.
Murphy is a hardline right-winger who quit the party to campaign for the now-defunct Change UK – often known as the ‘Tinge party’ because of racist comments by one of the MPs who deserted Labour to form it – and was the rapidly welcomed back with open arms and imposed as ‘Liverpool officer’ on the most left-wing city in England as part of Keir Starmer’s war on the left.
Now she’s writing shoddy emails to people who’ve been expelled by her boss and his sidekick. Right-wing Labour couldn’t organise the proverbial knees-up in a brewery, but it is asking voters to trust it to run the country.
