Former Labour leader turns on successor – who had stood up for Miliband’s father against disgusting smears in right wing press
Former Labour leader Ed Miliband said during a radio interview today that he backs Keir Starmer’s decision to bar Jeremy Corbyn standing as a Labour candidate, supposedly because of ‘antisemitism’.
In 2013, when Miliband was party leader, the Daily Mail launched a campaign of disgusting smears against Miliband’s father Ralf, attempting to tarnish the younger Miliband by association. One MP spoke up against the disgraceful defamation – Jeremy Corbyn:
Now Miliband has turned on the one person who was prepared to defend both him and his father. Stalin reportedly said gratitude was a ‘disease of dogs’ – there is little in the UK that is more Stalinist than the Labour party under the appalling regime of Keir Starmer and those who are either on board with his conduct or too cowardly to resist it.
