Deserved humiliation for Labour’s cowardly and sociopathic leader and his cronies
SNP Westminster leader Stephen Flynn humiliated ‘spineless’ Keir Starmer and his front bench with a well-placed barb in the Commons on Wednesday – after Tory PM Rishi Sunak had thanked Starmer for his support for the evil two-child benefit cap that has put 1.5 million children either below the poverty line or even deeper into poverty. Sunak also mocked Starmer’s addiction to breaking all his promises:
Starmer’s abject cowardice has deprived the UK of a meaningful opposition – except for the SNP and a handful of Labour backbenchers. While Starmer’s humiliation was deserved and amusing, the consequences are anything but funny for millions of children in poverty – including 1.5 million hit by the two-child cap.
Ending the cap would not only instantly lift 250,000 children out of poverty and vastly improve the situation of another 1.25 million – it would also save the UK almost £40 billion. Yet Starmer has said that he has no intention of doing so, such is his desperation to please enough billionaires, corporate bosses and press barons.
As a result of his sociopathic disregard for the poverty, illness, stigma and hunger of the UK’s desperate children, Starmer has been dubbed ‘Sir Kid Starver’ – a moniker that will deservedly stick to him as thoroughly as ‘milk snatcher’ did to Starmer’s role model, the late and unlamented Margaret Thatcher.
