After condemning Greens for collaborating with Tories, arch-rightwinger curiously quiet when Labour does it
Labour in Scotland – run by Starmerite placeman Anas Sarwar after Keir Starmer removed left-wing leader Richard Leonard and Scottish Labour’s general secretary to please some millionaires – has made a pact with the Tories to run Edinburgh Council and keep out the SNP.
Bizarrely, this has been met by complete silence by Shadow Health Secretary and wannabe next leader Wes Streeting – not even a couple of weeks after Streeting laid into the Greens for colluding with the Tories to run Worcester:
Despite Skwawkbox’s best efforts there appears to be no mention in Mr Streeting’s social media kf the Scottish scandal, even though it must surely be causing him great outrage.
Leading figures in possession of some moral fibre were more outspoken, such as Bakers’ union head Ian Hodson:
Starmer’s Labour, of course, is so close to the Tories politically that you would struggle to insert a cigarette paper between them – in fact, Labour is if anything now to the right of the Tories in many ways.
But surely it must be odd that Weasley is remaining tight-lipped about Labour’s collusion after lambasting the Greens for it. It’s unthinkable that he and his boss would be hypocrites, after all…
