Sir Keir Starmer most admired Theresa May for her ‘moral framework’: He must have missed ‘Windrush’ and the ‘hostile environment’

Sir Keir Starmer most admired Theresa May for her 'moral framework

Speaking at the annual Limmud Festival, Limmud is a British-Jewish educational charity the Labour Leader was asked which Tory politician he most admired, Sir Keir Starmer said: “I had a degree of admiration for Teresa May. I knew what her moral framework was.”

Sir Keir Starmer made the comments at the annual Limmud Festival, which took place online over Zoom as a result of gathering restrictions imposed by COVID-19.

Most people would agree that the one thing Theresa May was most lacking was in her so-called ‘Moral framework’. David Osman Veteran leftwing journalist and author called it right when he says:

“Theresa May’s ‘moral framework’ was so flexible she could deport a British citizen for being black on Saturday and still go to church on Sunday.” – D Osman

If these are the sort of moral framework Starmer admires then it would account for the reasons why he was chief amongst the 13 ‘Labour’ front-benchers, who did NOT sign a letter to Priti Patel demanding cancellation of ‘Windrush’ deportation flight in December 2020.

More than sixty Labour MPs put their names to a letter sent by Norwich MP Clive Lewis to Home Secretary Priti Patel, calling for the cancellation of a deportation flight to Jamaica taking off on Wednesday. The flight, which will affect people who have lived in the UK since their childhood, will separate at least 31 children from their father and, as Lewis notes, is a continuation of the ‘Windrush’ ‘hostile environment’ policies that put deportees at risk of abuse, violence and even death.

‘My job was to build on some Thatcher policies

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has described Baroness Thatcher as “a towering political figure” whose legacy will be felt worldwide.

Mr Blair said Lady Thatcher had always been “immensely kind” to him.

He added: “I always thought my job was to build on some of the things she had done rather than reverse them.

“Many of the things she said, even though they pained people like me on the left… had a certain creditability.” LINK

Sir Keir went onto defend his decision to serve in the Shadow Cabinet under Jeremy Corbyn.

He said: “I thought it was better to stay and try and change things; others thought it was better to leave.

“I thought it was better to make the arguments that needed to be made in the Shadow Cabinet.

“I took the view that if you are in a party you stay in and fight for change; other people took a different view.”

He added: “I am very conscious now that as leader of the Labour Party, it falls to me to bring about that change.”

Translated: Sir Keir Starmer used his position to undermined Corbyn at every turn.

Sir Keir Starmer was amongst the right wing Labour Party MPs that carried out the so-called Chicken coup against Jeremy Corbyn three days after the Referendum and David Cameron resigned, throwing Labour into turmoil and the country leaderless from both main parties

Lets hope people are just as loyal to Starmer has he was to Corbyn…
