Lamest possible show of desperation as party masquerades as Scottish rivals during leadership debate
The Labour party under Keir Starmer put its political and moral bankruptcy on show again in the clearest possible way, when the Labour press Twitter account pretended to be the SNP last night and attacked the Scottish nationalist party for having no principles.
The rebranding, complete with ripped-off logo and colours, was an embarrassment and betrayed the complete lack of political vision as Starmer’s party scraped through the barrel-bottom in an attempt to score points when it has nothing but cosiness with the Tories to offer Scotland:
Keir Starmer has broken every promise he made to con his way into the party leadership, betrayed the poor and vulnerable – and has u-turned and gone through feeble, damp-squib ‘relaunches’ more times than anyone cares to remember, while offering nothing but vague and vacuous ‘missions‘ that are abandoned as fast as they are flapped in the nation’s face.
And he mouthed pledges of empowerment to Labour members and to regions and nations – after waging war on member democracy and meddling in Scottish Labour politics to get rid of the elected Scottish leader to please a gang of millionaires in the hope of getting cash from them. So somewhere an irony meter exploded at the idea of Labour accusing any other party of having no principles and no leadership.
If the SNP has only one policy, it’s one more than Labour – unless you count blind loyalty to nazi-ridden Ukraine and slavish ‘unequivocal’ commitment to apartheid.
It was the lamest imaginable way to put on show the fact that Labour is a hollow, rotting husk of a once-great party that serves no purpose other than to give voters the illusion of choice based on rosette colour.
