Cooper attacked Lineker for comparison with 30s – but made comparison with 30s

Labour right-winger’s hypocrisy laid bare – there are always receipts

Earlier today, Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper sided with the Tories against football pundit Gary Lineker – and against desperate refugees – condemning Lineker for comparing the Tories’ inflammatory race-hate language about asylum-seeker boats to the fascist rhetoric of the 1930s, saying ‘I just don’t think you should make comparisons with the 1930s’.

But Ms Cooper has been around long enough to know that ‘there are always receipts’ – and of course, it wasn’t long before she was exposed as, you’ve guessed it, comparing behaviour to the 1930s. She was called out publicly for it by union left-winger Howard Beckett:

2017 Ms Cooper was right to compare the disgusting S*n rag to fascism. 2023 Ms Cooper is a bare-faced, shameful, opportunist hypocrite who seems to think that the lack of scrutiny afforded to her boss and his drones in appearances on the so-called ‘mainstream’ media means she can talk any old cobblers and nobody will pick her up on it.
