Not the bees' knees
Keir Starmer has made another of his vacuous ‘I’m a patriot’ style speeches before having to self-isolate. I wonder if the two things are related? Basically his message is 'work hard you wage slaves, and you’ll enjoy good health and youthful energy, have plenty to eat, a comfortable home and be satisfied in work and experience complete peace.' Actually, apart from the ‘work hard you wage slaves’ bit, the rest of this message comes from another source but could easily be mistaken for a Starmer speech. Except this other source also promises 'you’ll see your dead loved ones brought back to life on earth.' This other source is actually ‘Louise’ who very kindly posted to me via Royal Mail an invitation to visit the Jehovah’s Witnesses website. She goes on to say 'Many people feel the Bible’s promises for the future are too good to be true.'
A lot of people may also ask when is Starmer going to make any promises—and keep them? They will remember how he reneged on all his leadership contest pledges, such as renationalising energy and rail. If it is only a matter of time before the Tories’ taste for regicide gives Boris Johnson the old heave-ho and they replace him with somebody half-competent I fear Starmer’s schtick as the serious managerial alternative will be holed below the waterline. And I wonder when Starmer will acknowledge that e.g. pensioners don’t actually have to ‘work hard?’ Why does he consistently ignore this large, voting demographic? I’m with ‘Louise’ when she asks 'Wouldn’t you agree, we all need some encouragement at the moment?' So pull your finger out Keir and work a little harder to convince us you’re the bees’ knees.
P.S. I won't be taking 'Louise's' invitation up on this occasion.
