Labour Civil War: Sir Keir Starmer’s aide tells the Left to ‘Bring It On’

Labour Civil War

Less than 12 months ago Sir Keir Starmer stood on a so-called unity platform today his actions and his own aide’s words reflect his real ambitions.

Carolyn Harris aide to Keir Starmer has dismissed left-wing criticism of his leadership as “nonsense” claiming that it is not based in “the real world”.

Harris, the Labour leader’s parliamentary private secretary (PPS), told HuffPost UK that left-wing critics of Starmer are “making themselves look silly”.

It came after a coalition of MPs, unions and Labour members called Starmer to hold an emergency party conference amid speculation of a leadership challenge as members fear he is repositioning the party to the centre.

But Harris told HuffPost UK’s Commons People podcast: “All this nonsense about so and so and so and so is going to challenge him for the leadership – bring it on, because it’s nonsense.

“(They are) just making themselves look silly.

“Talking on Zoom, that’s all they are doing, talking to each other on Zoom.

“Come into the real world my loves and let’s talk about the damage that’s been done and the repair work that we’re doing.”

It’s not a phoney war it started a long time ago.

You would think Carolyn Harris disingenuous remarks and utter dismissal of Labour’s Left-wing shows how far from reality the centrist have come. Unfortunately, the reality is they have been manoeuvring their tanks and digging the trenches while using the witch hunt to politicly assassinate Left-wing voices for years. Her remarks are just cover for the ongoing Labour civil war.

Transmogrification of the labour party
“If the Labour Party could be bullied or persuaded to denounce its Marxists, the media – having tasted blood – would demand next that it expelled all its Socialist and reunited the remaining Labour Party with the SDP to form a harmless alternative to the Conservatives, which could then be allowed to take office now and then when the Conservatives fell out of favour with the public. Thus British Capitalism, it is argued, will be made safe forever, and socialism would be squeezed of the National agenda. But if such a strategy were to succeed… it would in fact profoundly endanger British society. For it would open up the danger of a swing to the far-right, as we have seen in Europe over the last 50 years.” ― Tony Benn

“The leadership has shown more enthusiasm for attacking the left in the Labour Party than it has for properly holding the government to account” Labour MP Richard Burgon on Keir Starmer leading his party

On the ground the Left-wing members are leaving the party in droves the last count before Corbyn’s suspension was 57k we would dare the party to publish membership figures now.

This is the result of an ongoing assault from Sir Keir Starmer and the centrist who have been conducting an all-out attack on the Left an assault that started long before he took the Leadership.

Labour can only hope to win the ‘Red Wall’ supporters back by dropping the architect of Labour’s vote losing Brexit policy ‘Starmer’ select a leader that leads the party in its ideals and principles, not their idea of what they want the Labour party to be. Then it must present a sound economic strategy, good socialist policy’s, policy’s that build on manufacturing, food production and nationalisation of utilities Rail and mail. It should lay out a plan for Free education with vocational training front and centre.

Labour needs to ‘ditch Starmer’ if they hope to win seats, it’s embarrassing that in the midst of the most incompetent Tory Government responsible for the deaths of over 100k people due to covid mismanagement the opposition cannot be trusted to do better. The latest opinion polls still put Starmer and Labour behind the Tories

Starmer’s long history of undermining the Left

Starmer has been part and parcel of the establishment’s attack on the Left for years. He constantly undermined Jeremy Corbyn even participating in the 2016 chicken coup, forcing a leadership contest just days after David Cameron resigned standing down as prime minister after the referendum result had been declared, fundamentally leaving both the UK’s biggest political parties leaderless in the midst of the biggest national turning point since world war two.

The obvious mistake Corbyn made was to be magnanimous, allowing the coup plotters and participants back onto the front bench. Corbyn would have done well to overcome his nature and be a little Machiavellian at times or at least bring his friends a little closer.

Starmer used many occasions to undermine Corbyn, none more so than in his Brexit policy. often veering away from party policy of ‘no second referendum’ until the death punch came in 2018 at the Labour party confrence when Starmer pushed the composite motion through after 6 hours of loggerheads, he turned a composite motion to campaign for a second referendum to stop a Tory ‘NO-DEAL’ or ‘BAD-DEAL’ into a campaign to remain in the EU by declaring in his conference speech ‘no one is ruling out remain’.

This was the pivotal point in Labours decline, from then on in Starmer was pitted for Leader and the vast majority of Labour members would rather back remaining in the EU than have a remotely socialist government under Jeremy Corbyn. It was extremely telling when the first edict uttered from Starmer’s lips was to say GET BREXIT DONE sending a message to all the remain backers that had put him in a position of leadership, there will be no turning back, we have left the EU. ‘Job done!’

The establishment had won and their Trilateral commission member was set to become Labour leader the most fantastic right-wing coup in modern political history.

Starmer and the centrist sat back while the witch hunt picked of the Left wing voices one by one from the public faces like Jackie Walker, Marc Wadsworth, Pete Willsman, Ken Livingston, Chris Williamson and even Jeremy Corbyn himself, Now the ‘witch prickers’ are prodding Ken Loach obliviously he is asking to many awkward questions not just about Palestine but Starmer’s involvement in the Julian Assange extradition case.

There has also been thousands of other Left wingers without public profiles suspended or expelled from the Party some deserved but many more not. They have been persecuted and attacked many for posting in naivety rather than malice others for little more than liking the wrong social media comment.

The readmittance of the Labour party staffers involved in the #LabourLeaks who carried out attacks on Corbyn and Left-wing members shows where Starmer stands not to mention his advocation of Zionism an ideal once classed as a form of racism and racial discrimination”

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, adopted on 10 November 1975 by a vote of 72 to 35 (with 32 abstentions), “determine[d] that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination”. The vote took place approximately one year after UNGA 3237 granted the PLO Permanent Observer status, following PLO president Yasser Arafat’s “olive branch” speech to the General Assembly in November 1974. The resolution was passed with the support of the Soviet bloc, in addition to the Arab- and Muslim-majority countries, many African countries, and a few others.

The determination that “Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination”, contained in the resolution, was revoked in 1991 with UN General Assembly Resolution 46/86.

We are at the point where Starmer’s New Labour have maned the trenches rolled out the tanks and then declared there is nothing going on here.
