‘We have a ridiculous appearance.’ Labour MP acknowledges his party isn’t a “effective opponent” to Boris Johnson.
A LABOUR MP erupted in laughter as she lamented the party’s dwindling popularity and unity.
Rosie Duffield, a Labour MP, vented her rage against Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour Party. She claimed on BBC Politics Live that the party will frequently appear foolish and useless. She questioned if Labour would be able to stand up to Boris Johnson’s Conservative government.
One of the significant difficulties, she said, was the party’s political differences.
“You know, I think it would be great if Labour was more united,” Ms Duffield remarked.
“However, factional individuals are continually bringing up this broad church argument.
“Because we are so diverse, we must at least share certain values.
“If we don’t know what we stand for, we won’t be able to provide effective opposition.
“We won’t be able to if we keep arguing over it or who our leader is for the rest of our lives.
“Right now, we just appear foolish and ineffective.
“Keir is attempting to reduce this and make us appear united, which is a positive move in the right direction.
Sir Keir has stated that he is committed to regaining former Labour voters and strengthening the party.
Last week in Blackpool, the Labour Party leader met with former Labour voters and asked them what they wanted from the party.
Sir Keir had been informed that the party appeared to be fragmented, which was stopping it from progressing.
“First and foremost, your party is divided within itself,” Zacky, a former Labour supporter, remarked.
“Get rid of all the losers who are always bickering.
“By doing what they’re doing, they want to lose even more.”
However, Sir Keir admitted that firing people from the Labour Party was not an easy procedure.
