The Tories have been taken over by socialists in an anti-democratic globalist coup, but the alternative under Slippery Starmer is far more terrifying, says Dan Wootton
We know by now that Slippery Starmer is a shapeshifter.
But his fantasy today to present himself as some sort of anti-immigration advocate who hasn’t spent his political career advocating for open borders and free movement takes the cake.
Look, I know what Labour is trying to do – and it’s politically clever, if dishonest.
As the likely next government, they are working two years out from the next election to neutralise areas where they will be vulnerable to attacks from the right.
But the policy does not back their rhetoric.
So speaking to the CBI today, Starmer talked tough in his prepared address…
But the reality of his policy is altogether different.
There is no target to reduce the number of immigrants and no plan to stop the invasion of illegal migrants via our weak southern border.
In fact, when pushed, Starmer would only say he would take a “pragmatic” approach to the numbers, which, in reality, means even more arrivals putting pressure on our already stretched NHS and housing system…
So what exactly does Starmer mean by being “pragmatic”?
You only need to look at his own public statements and policy positions to find the answer.
Like the letter he sent to the Labour for Free Movement campaign in 2020, where he wrote…
"I believe [free movement] should be protected as we leave the EU, and I am very concerned at the impact [ending it] will inevitably have on our economy"
Or how about his own tweet, where he insists, “we have to make the case for freedom of movement, and we have to make it strongly”, coupled with this video from the day we finally left the EU…
As a Conservative spokesman responded today…
“Starmer is a dyed-in-the-wool open borders advocate who wants to give illegal migrants priority access to work permits. His shadow Home Secretary won't even say if she wants to see the level of immigration fall.”
And that’s the problem we have at the moment.
The Tories have been taken over by socialists in an anti-democratic globalist coup, with Suella Braverman the only true Brexiteer and conservative in the Cabinet.
But the alternative we could be facing for five years under Slippery Starmer is far more terrifying.
