Just a few examples of the unpunished behaviour of current front-benchers is enough to expose yet another Starmer lie
Starmer’s briefed defenders have told their media allies that the regime’s continued and escalating attack on Hackney North and Stoke Newington MP Diane Abbott – the UK’s first Black woman MP – have been to maintain ‘standards’.
Abbott was suspended over an article stating – correctly – that Black people experience racism differently than Jewish people, because their difference cannot be concealed. She quickly apologised – wrongly, according to many Black commenters, who maintained that their experience showed she was correct.
Starmer was rightly pilloried for his interference, to suspend her, in the party’s disciplinary processes.
Now former Corbyn speechwriter Alex Nunns has published a thread on what used to be Twitter, listing just a few of the examples of racism by Labour MPs who are still in the party and in many cases on Starmer’s front bench – exposing the lie that this has anything to do with ‘standards’:
Nunns is absolutely correct in his conclusion that these cases – all covered at the time by Skwawkbox along with Starmer’s double standard that has been ignored by the so-called ‘mainstream’ media. But the rot is not limited to the Commons benches.
Starmer’s party allowed paedophile Thomas Dewey to stand for election as a councillor despite knowing that he had been arrested for his crimes. Dewey’s free pass from the party despite his arrest for paedophilia was far from an exception for the Starmer regime. Among the ‘blind eyes’ or worse turned by the party machine, Redbridge council leader Jas Athwal was allowed to become a Labour parliamentary candidate despite the party’s own lawyer saying he should be investigated over allegations of ‘serious’ sexual assault. MP Neil Coyle was welcomed back into the party by Keir Starmer despite making racist remarks and being found by Parliament to have sexually harassed at least one person.
And the party’s eagerness to get a right-winger into the safe Liverpool seat admirably filled by left-winger Ian Byrne that a local councillor with unanswered allegations of disgraceful anti-disabled ‘concentration camp’ comments was put up to stand against him.
Starmer and his sidekick David Evans also covered up a whistleblower’s allegations of ‘sadistic’ and ‘criminal’ abuse and exploitation of domestic violence victims by a front-bench MP’s staffer who was also his lover – and Starmer kept two other MPs in his Shadow Cabinet despite them being investigated for sexual harassment.
Diane Abbott is well rid of Labour. The rotten, racist husk that remains under Starmer of what used to be the party is unworthy of her or any decent left-wingers. Very few now remain behind a red rosette and the country has been knowingly deprived of any meaningful parliamentary choice.
