West Derby MP spoke to open food debate last week
The Labour regime did its anti-democratic worst to remove Liverpool West Derby MP Ian Byrne earlier this year, in an attempt to secure the seat for a right-wing drone with unanswered bullying and hate-speech allegations who wouldn’t humiliate the party leadership by showing what a real Labour MP looks like.
And we saw again what a real Labour MP looks like when the working-class Byrne – MP of the Year for his work against hunger – delivered a powerful and moving speech to open his Westminster Hall debate on the cost of food and its impact on the poor for whom he fights:
How badly the country could do with a couple of hundred Ian Byrnes on the Labour benches. Instead, the Labour right has rigged seemingly every selection to try to populate them with Starmeroid mini-me parodies – Labour’s notional leader spent Byrne’s Commons speech on hunger playing on his phone earlier this month – and the and the poor and vulnerable of this country will continue to suffer, without hope of better at least from Westminster, as a result.
