Ordinary people leave in droves – and it seems the billionaires aren’t buying either
The lies and excuses of the Labour right have been exposed (again) – this time by the Electoral Commission. While Keir Starmer’s supporters have tried to deny the obvious and claim the party’s membership and fortunes are on the up under what passes for his leadership, the EC has published Labour’s official accounts for its most recent years and the figures make appalling, but not shocking, reading.
In the most recent twelve-month period, Labour has lost 91,119 members – and made a financial loss of £4.829 million – a loss that would have been far worse if the pension scheme hadn’t made a net gain of almost £1.6m. Ordinary members are leaving in droves and disgust – and it seems the billionaires are not buying what Starmer is offering either.
Starmeroids have tried to claim membership was increasing and that Starmer’s ‘reforms’ have put the party on a better trajectory. Instead, as the left has known and warned all along, he is destroying it – morally, politically and financially.
