Analysis comment

Starmer’s late father was Corbyn supporter who ‘gave rousing speech’ of support during ‘chicken coup’

Rodney made more than just tools, according to fellow CLP member

Keir Starmer has been a caning by a retired Surrey teacher who used to be a member of the same constituency Labour party (CLP) as Starmer’s late father Rodney for his behaviour in the Labour party.

According to this eyewitness, who was commenting in response to yet another awful PR video exploiting the memory of his parents, Starmer senior made a ‘rousing speech’ in favour of Jeremy Corbyn as leader – when Starmer and a string of other right-wing MPs tried to force out then-leader Jeremy Corbyn in the notorious ‘chicken coup’ and then tried to use the awful Owen Smith to beat him in a leadership election – and added that Rodney would ‘not be happy’ at Starmer’s Stalinist purge of left-wingers like Corbyn and North of Tyne mayor Jamie Driscoll:

Of course, the usual Pavlovian apologists claimed Starmer senior would still be proud of junior, which the witness conceded – but then, love is blind after all – but many disagreed, considering that Starmer has betrayed his parents’ values:

Others responded with observations about how this news would go down among Starmeroid circles:

It seems Rodney Starmer made more than just tools. Shame on Keir Starmer for abusing his parents’ memory endlessly for a worn-out political soundbite.
