Cowardly Starmer sends minions out to take the heat for his crassness and lack of moral principle
Labour right-winger and front-bencher Lucy Powell suffered an absolute car-crash of an interview this morning when she tried to defend last night’s vile and racist exploitation of child abuse victims for cheap political points on social media by her leadership.
You can’t defend the indefensible – and Powell squirmed as she was repeatedly challenged over the tweet and said it was an acceptable part of political campaigning, yet wouldn’t repeat the tweet’s message in person:
Starmer clearly doesn’t want to face the music for his choices – or questions over his own dire record, including the CPS’s failure to prosecute Jimmy Savile when he was DPP, which he defended, and repeated let-offs for police murderers of innocent civilians such as Ian Tomlinson and Jean Charles de Menezes.
Starmer has destroyed Labour as a credible force for good – but sends out his minions to take the heat for messages he has surely endorsed himself before they were sent out.
