A former Labour minister has conceded her party is ‘out of touch’ with the British public.
Labour’s top team have been told ‘your job is not to generate policy, it’s to get out there and attack the Tories’ - showing they are still focused on the sort of political point scoring that people decided to move on from at last year’s election.
New analysis showed that 96 per cent of Labour’s funding comes from trade unions – whose leaders have demanded that they don’t abandon Corbyn’s far-left policies.
Shadow Business Minister, Seema Malhotra, argued that handouts for everyone should be an ‘important part’ of Labour’s economic plan – following the thinking of Jeremy Corbyn.
The Labour leader refused to give answers on important issues like whether he would back a trade deal with the EU, whether Labour would back or block a second Scottish independence referendum or if he would use the nuclear deterrent if needed to keep our country safe.
Labour’s Deputy Leader has been none-too-subtle in suggesting that Sir Keir should ‘get out of the way’ in favour of an alternative leader.
It has been revealed that Sir Keir has previously suggested it was racist to argue for any control on immigration, saying ‘it is not a question of numbers, it’s a question of racism’.
And on coronavirus, the most pressing issue facing our country today, he explicitly refused to set out any alternative plan – so that he can continue to play the same old politics and just criticise and blame.
