Seems Keir Starmer and his war-hungry corporateers do not want peace and safety for the civilians of Gaza
The Labour party – via front-bencher Florence Eshalomi – has asked Parliament to edit the official Hansard record of yesterday’s Commons discussion of the Gaza crisis to remove Eshalomi’s comment supporting a ‘humanitarian ceasefire’ in Gaza to protect civilians and allow proper aid, food and medicines to reach more than two million Gazan civilians, more than half of them children, facing constant bombardment by Israeli armed forces.
Eshalomi told Tory PM Rishi Sunak whether he agreed that a humanitarian ceasefire is needed – but the official written record now states that she asked about a ‘humanitarian corridor‘ – but the footage of the exchange shows what she really asked:
Curiously, Skwawkbox’s attempts to search the index of the Parliamentary feed of the day’s proceedings caused the ‘Parliament Live’ video player to stop working as soon as the characters ‘Esh’ were entered into the search bar:
The same happened in various browsers. Searches for other terms and on other days’ feed did not result in the same error message.
Gazan hospitals and schools have been bombed, Doctors without Borders have reported that they are forced to operate without anaesthetic and hospital generators are running out of fuel – yet Labour does not want even a mention of a ceasefire call on the record.
It seems Establishment servant Keir Starmer doesn’t have saving Palestinians from hideous suffering and death very close to the top of his priority list, if it features at all.
