Starmer slammed yesterday for airbrushing first Black woman MP Diane Abbott out of party history as he promoted programme for Black candidates – but member of previous cohort points out hollowness of Labour right’s noise
Keir Starmer and his regime were slammed yesterday for their arrogance in touting the Bernie Grant programme for Black candidates – while excising the first Black woman MP, Diane Abbott, from the party’s history – and angry respondents pointed out that Grant, the first Black MP, a proud socialist and supporter of Palestinian rights, would have despised Starmer and would never have made it through Labour’s now-rigged selection processes.
And the proof of that pudding was borne out the same evening – when one of the programme’s inaugural class in 2019 pointed out that not a single member of that first class, recruited under Jeremy Corbyn when Labour had real policies and vision, has been selected as a candidate.
Not only that, but the party has actively blocked at least some from standing – just as has been done to left-wing candidates across the country by the Starmer regime, even (or especially) when that prospective candidate is the most popular and highly-regarded one:
Starmer’s party poses as promoting Black people – but is deeply racist against them, against Muslims and against Gypsy Roma Travellers.
Starmer himself poses as a defender of vulnerable women – yet has covered up a whistleblower’s repeated warnings of ‘sadistic’ and ‘criminal’ abuse perpetrated against vulnerable domestic violence victims by the staffer and lover of a right-wing MP, as well as protecting alleged sex-harassers on his front bench, allowing other sex-pest MPs to remain in the party, welcoming back those few who were suspended after their racism and sexual harassment were exposed and allowing alleged sex abusers to become candidates.
He claims to have zero tolerance toward racism, yet has right-wing MPs who made antisemitic smears in his Shadow Cabinet and
And he claims he will promote local democracy while crushing it at every level.
The fundamental racism and contempt for democracy of the shell of the Labour party that remains under Keir Starmer is laid bare daily – and the arrogance of their attempt to exploit the programme named after a legendary Black socialist is a new level of disgrace.
