The Starmer group heading the Labour Party represents a thorough political degeneration of the Labour leadership. There is barely a trace of even the mildest social democracy in its political outlook.
Keir Starmer’s speech on A New Chapter for Britain was heralded as a breakthrough moment where he would simultaneously set out his vision for the economy and society while beginning to outline a wholly different economic policy.
If that was its purpose, it failed miserably in every respect.
Jeremy Corbyn is a Labour Party member after his unjust suspension. The Labour whip should be restored immediately.
Government policy in Britain remains much closer to ‘herd immunity’, which is tantamount to letting the Covid-19 crisis rip through the population, than to an effective lockdown.
