Starmer then flew in fury to Washington after Theresa May blocked McKinnon extradition
As Director of Public Prosecutions, Labour ‘leader’ Keir Starmer promised the American government the extradition of autistic hacker Gary McKinnon, who had gained access to poorly-protected US military systems looking for information about UFOs. The US, to cover its embarrassment, pursued McKinnon’s extradition in order to imprison him for life.
The extradition was eventually blocked by Tory then-PM Theresa May on humanitarian grounds, prompting Starmer to rush in a fury to Washington to tell his US intelligence contacts that he was horrified by May’s move and to plead with them not to hold it against him. Yet when he was challenged by McKinnon’s mother before the extradition was blocked, his only thought was for himself, that she was making him uncomfortable.
This information, revealed by author Oliver Eagleton, has never been challenged by Starmer – and Eagleton discussed his discovery in a video that has been republished by writer Saul Staniforth:
Starmer has been described as a ‘long-time servant of the British security state’ and has relentlessly backed moves to protect state agents from even such crimes as rape and murder, his attacks on environmental and human rights protesters, his support for immunity for soldiers who murdered civilians in Northern Ireland and more and his refusal to oppose laws allowing the state to persecute journalists. He has never spoken out against the even more relentless US pursuit of Julian Assange, despite the collapse of the US case when its main witness admitted lying all along.
Scratch a Labour right-winger and the Tory beneath is revealed in a heartbeat – and Starmer’s coat of paint is micron-thin.
