After Starmer’s picket ban and Lammy’s betrayal, right-wing regime again makes clear what it thinks of working people fighting for their jobs, pay and conditions
Labour front-bencher Kerry McCarthy has joined the ranks of right-wing front-benchers pouring contempt on ordinary people fighting for their jobs, pay and working conditions – and on those who support them.
Speaking to Sky News, McCarthy dismissed solidarity with people on strike as ‘performative’, essentially mere gesture politics:
Starmer has banned MPs from attending picket lines, while his foreign affairs spokesman David Lammy made false claims to the media about striking workers and said he would not support them, then went unpunished – and now McCarthy.
Starmer and his cronies wouldn’t understand working-class solidarity if it bit them on the backside – as it certainly needs to, politically.
