At long last, the leader of the Labour Party, Sir Kier Starmer has shown true, decisive leadership with unequivocal positions taken on the things that matter. In a kind of three buses all come along at once moment we have learnt that a) Sir Kier wants to see an Alpaca slaughtered because it has TB (disputed, but Kier’s veterinary skills must have helped to form his clear cut opinion); b) he has said he would only allow Corbyn to be readmitted to the Parliamentary Labour Party if Jeremy makes a fulsome apology for anything he might have said about anything ever (which translated means licking the soles of Margaret Hodge’s (aka Enver Hodga’s) feet; and finally c) under Starmer’s brilliant leadership, we have just seen a true friend of working people, the film director Ken Loach kicked out of the party. All this adds up to a winning formula for Labour, which with its mass redundancy programme for party staff is demonstrating that it’s got a spring in its step and is serious about destroying itself. Is this the only power it has? With membership levels dropping like a lead balloon (and hence opposition to its woeful leader) the party is devising a whole new way of doing politics! Meanwhile the world is burning.
