Starmer's tactic -


Recommended Posts

Seems Starmer's tactic, no doubt learnt from the Bliar school for escaping justice, is to raise the prospect of resigning if the Police issue him with a fixed penalty notice.   As the probable consequence of such a resignation would put enormous pressure on Boris to do likewise;  the intent of this ploy is to place enormous pressure on the Police NOT to take action over "beergate".   Let's hope the Police will do their duty and call his bluff.    😠

Because Boris has said he will not resign, if Starmer does indeed resign he will appear self-indulgent and reinforce the view that Labour thinks more about itself than  it thinks about the public. It will not put pressure on Boris at all, quite the opposite. There is a tweet from one of Starmer's aides to a journalist that points out the the threat to resign puts pressure in only one direction on the Durham Police. Charlie Falconer, who has been consulted by Starmer, pulled the same trick in 2006 when he told Blair to threaten to resign if the Met interviewed him under caution in the alleged cash for peerages row that year. (No it isn't just the Tories despite what the BBC would try to make you believe)

But if he is whacked with a fine it is us who pay his wages so we are paying for it.

and if he does resign as a consequence from what job is he resigning, he will still be in politics just on a bit less wedge.

unlike Joe public, who find themselves down the job centre filling in forms, he will just shuffle across to some other cushy number in the party ranks.

Well Labour are still the Party of the London liberal elite,  overiding  the wishes of local Labour members by parachuting their candidates into the selection for Workington.  Rightly, the whole Executive of the Workington LP have resigned.  Let's hope the average voter recognises their true nature.    😠
