Sir Keir Starmer doesn’t want to fight the Tories, but fight the left, while pathetically pleading with the Tories to be a little bit gentler, a bit less unkind.
And despite the attempts of some of the worst, most sanctimonious, most cynical, immoral people on the planet to put the knife into Jeremy, he is still standing strong, still a powerful voice for the oppressed and exploited on street and online local and international platforms.
Though on the petulant whim of Labour’s struggling current leader, Corbyn remains cast out from the Parliamentary Labour Party, for revealing a truth, in his calm assessment of the Equality and Human Rights Commission report on anti-semitism and the Labour Party, a truth which he was entirely within his rights to state, and one on which many of his Jewish constituents fully concur with him.
I hope Corbyn is able to look back with real pride on that remarkable campaign in 2017 when he and us — the movement he engendered — scared the hell out of the British Establishment.
