Inept Labour right-winger contradicts Starmer contradicting himself
Woeful Labour right-winger Jonathan Ashworth made a mug of himself on national television over the Gary Lineker affair this morning.
Ashworth appears not to have got the memo after his party’s embarrassing u-turn from attacking Lineker for criticising the UK’s fascist-adjacent government for using fascist language about desperate asylum-seekers – so he continued saying that ‘nobody’ was defending Lineker’s comments.
Millions, of course, have been doing exactly that – and after the screeching u-turn Keir Starmer and co finally got on board too – three whole days ago – attacking both the government and the BBC:
Ashworth, though, was still pandering:
Ashworth contributed to the sabotaging of Labour’s 2019 general election campaign, with many believing he ‘accidentally-on-purpose’ got himself recorded bad-mouthing Corbyn to a Tory MP – and responded to the Forde report, which exposed widespread fraud, racism and sabotage by right-wing Labour staff, with a ‘yawn emoji’.
But his self-sabotage here looks like either cowardice or incompetence, or perhaps most likely both.
