Keir Starmer – laughably termed the ‘leader’ of the ‘opposition’ – has decided to let Boris Johnson off the hook for partying as Johnson’s policies sentenced hundreds of thousands to a lonely death and has given the Russian invasion of Ukraine as his excuse.
According to press reports, Starmer has withdrawn his call, so slow to arrive in the first place, for Johnson to resign because the UK has to be ‘united’ against Russian president Vladimir Putin – as if such pie-in-the-sky unity wouldn’t be just as achievable/unrealistic under some other Tory monster.
Starmer also gave a similar excuse for supporting Johnson and running from any real criticism during the pandemic, ignoring the massive toll of needless deaths, the intentional slaughter of our elderly and the deliberate infection of our children and young people, because it was ‘not the time’ and the nation needed unity – then only finally made his feeble call for Johnson’s resignation once he saw which way the wind of public opinion was blowing over ‘partygate‘.
Both main parties are ‘led’ by the worst possible people at the worst possible time, with a massive cost in lives and health and likely worse to come – and nobody within reach of power is remotely fit to run a bath, let alone a country.
This is the dire situation into which the collaboration of extremist Tories and so-called ‘moderates’ has pushed the UK.
