Mass outrage follows Starmer’s hollow words on Hillsborough anniversary
Keir Starmer’s contempt for Liverpool backfired on him today when he had the nerve to put out a rote tweet of sympathy for the victims and survivors of the Hillsborough disaster and their families.
Bad enough that he wrote of the victims ‘losing their lives’ when they were unlawfully killed – but Starmer has also written, as Labour’s ‘leader’, for the hated Murdoch S*n – which spent decades smearing Hillsborough victims and the city of Liverpool as part of the Establishment’s attempt to cover up and justify the needless deaths and suffering the police, press and government inflicted.
And worse still, instead of grovelling for forgiveness he said he would do it again – and he cannot claim even ignorance as an excuse, as he came to Liverpool during his leadership campaign and told Labour members he understood the hurt that vile rag caused and would not speak to it (though, in typical weasel-fashion, only during that campaign).
Starmer also promoted S*n columnists to his front bench, appointed fellow Murdoch fans as his political and communications directors – and just this week, the party was tweeting a link to an article by the ‘Scum’ calling for the imprisonment of climate change protesters.
The reaction was rightly massive, with thousands of replies and ‘quote tweets’ pulling no punches as the betrayed said where he could stick his ‘faux-sympathy’:
Since his unrepentant decision to write for the most appalling toilet-paper in the UK, Starmer has declared war on the city of Liverpool, interfering in candidate selections for the mayoral position and other local elections, targeting left-wingers for expulsion, forcing changes on local parties to disenfranchise members and even appointing a right-winger who campaigned for the now-defunct ‘funny tinge’ party CUK as Labour’s ‘Liverpool officer’.
The people of Liverpool and their allies have made it clear that their contempt for him in return is boundless.
