Starmer never saw a promise he wouldn’t break or an ordinary person he wouldn’t betray
Keir Starmer has shredded yet another longstanding Labour promise – I know, who knew there was one left – his second in just a couple of days.
After scrapping Labour’s promise to end the charitable status of the ‘elite’ private schools used by the rich, Starmer has now binned Labour’s promise to restore social housing as the second-largest form of tenancy – and instead the party says it is now a (meaningless) ‘long-term aspiration‘.
Starmer can’t keep a firm promise to save his life, so an ‘aspiration’ isn’t worth the respiration it takes to say it. Starmer is a tool of the Establishment with no concern whatsoever for the needs of ordinary people.
