It's strange that Labour are now promoting good reasons to vote Lib Dem.

And don't SLab also want to get rid of nuclear weapons?

Starmer is a scumbag, no two ways about it.

Starmer has also shown an uncompromising attitude towards pro-Palestinian activism since he was elected leader. He said he did not accept the findings of an Amnesty International reportthat Israel was an apartheid state. Its report found there was “institutionalised and prolonged racist oppression of millions of people”.

I just watched an old documentary about the Greenpeace activists who got sued by McDonalds in the Nineties for distributing leaflets outlining how their products harm both the environment and human health. Having no money, they had to attempt to defend themselves in court against McDonalds' highly-paid team of barristers. After the case was over and they got massive amounts of publicity, they appealed to the ECHR, whereupon they were joined by none other than Not-Then-Sir Keef Starmer, whose arse they kissed profusely for his help.

I wonder what they think of him now.

Lay off the Skunk Stormzy. 

6 seconds out of context which is him accurately describing the state of play and the specific conversation that was about having to win votes from other parties.

You could get a job at the National if you keep up that sort of deep dive journalism though.

John Rentoul trying to spin this absolute shambolic performance from UK Labour as a big win for Keir Starmer

They are +40 seats with about 4000 council seats contested which is pretty much a rounding error. When Boris and the Tories are meant to be on the back seat.

The London centric media obsessing with Barnet, Wandsworth and Westminster councils, the last time I looked the Lib Dems were up 176 in England overall to Labour's +48.  If I were in Labour HQ I'd hold the champers for now.

Westminster and Wandsworth!

Starmer has proved he can win in the North and South (of London)

Dianne Abbot saying she doesn’t think Starmer will be fined but if he is he should “consider his position”.

She’s wrong.  If he’s fined and does not successfully appeal it he should resign; no consideration required.

Labour shooting itself in the face for no apparent reason, again, now underway.
 
 
To which Bozo will laugh and quip don't let the door hit you on the arse on your way out as he carries on regardless. There is no moral high ground when it comes to an uber c**t like Johnson.

This is pretty much Labour’s (latest) miscalculation. They’re desperately trying to set up Starmer as the reasonable, honest, honourable politician  in contrast to Johnson and his government’s lying, corrupt charlatans. It’s a non-starter precisely because Johnson is a lying, corrupt charlatan - why would he give a shit? His supporters have always known what he is and not cared/rewarded him for it.

Starmer can’t gain anything from winning a more positive reputation than Johnson when Johnson has never had a good one (and has found that being a rogue has only enhanced his public persona amongst the people who hold the keys to No 10).

I'll say this. It is politically brave, bold and principled of him if he does commit to resigning should he be fined. But I don't think it's going to work. 

All set for the optimum Tory and hilarious outcome of Starmer commiting political seppuku while BawJaws blunders on unscathed.
