“Removing the whip from well-regarded MPs… [is] destroying the party” – Keir Starmer

You couldn’t make it up – and don’t need to

The withdrawal of the ‘whip’ from popular MP by a party’s leader is an act of self-sabotage that tears a party apart and is bound to end badly.

Not the words of a die-hard Corbynite, but of Labour leader Keir Starmer hardly more than a year ago, on national radio:

One senior Labour source told the SKWAWKBOX:

That is Keir in a nutshell. He changes with the wind and says whatever suits him best at the time.

You couldn’t make it up – and don’t need to. After five years of a leader with principle, Labour now has Keir Starmer.
