Keir Starmer Suspiciously Takes An Early Leader in the Labour Leadership Election & The Mainstream News Media Have Begun Smearing Rebecca Long-Bailey, Oh & When Will Jess Phillips Either Piss Or Get Off The Potty

Keir Starmer appears to have taken an early lead over Rebecca Long-Bailey in the Labour leadership election if a YouGov poll published yesterday in the mainstream news media is to be believed, yeah if you actually believe a poll conducted by a market research company which was co-founded by Nadhim Zahawi who’s now a Tory MP & a member of Boris Johnson’s cabinet which was published in the mainstream news media who since the moment Labour lost the GE2019 have been touting Starmer as the favourite to take over from Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader. I find the YouGov poll suggesting Starmer to be the frontrunner in the Labour leadership election somewhat fishy (then some!), supposedly a 1,000 Labour members were surveyed by YouGov yeah likely a 1,000 Labour members who’ve affiliations with Progress & Open Labour or some other Blairite groupings within Labour who have spent the best part of the last 5yrs undermining the Labour leadership. Yes Starmer has said he wants to build upon the socialist platform put forward by Jeremy Corbyn (continuity Corbynism) & has been making speeches about how Labour were right to have taken a radical approach to tackling austerity, but he’s merely attempting to play to the gallery, attempting to fool a Labour Party membership which is generally now on the left of the left when we all know he’s an out & out Blairite.

Keir Starmer hasn’t as yet officially announced his candidacy to stand in the Labour leadership election & nor has Rebecca Long-Bailey who’s the favoured continuity Corbynism candidate, but despite Rebecca Long-Bailey not having officially entered the Labour leadership election this hasn’t stopped the mainstream news media from launching a smear campaign against her because she is the continuity Corbynism candidate. Apparently the guy Rebecca Long-Bailey has enlisted to coordinate her campaign to be elected as Labour leader is a self-proclaimed Stalinist & Rebecca has said she would want to rule Labour with an Iron Fist, well at least we now know what Rebecca’s walk on music will be if she is elected Labour leader cue Lemmy & the boys.

Rebecca Long-Bailey

So far Emily Thornberry & Clive Lewis are the only two Labour MPs who’ve actually officially announced the their candidacy to stand in the Labour leadership election, Emily Thornberry has a history of making gaffes & well after all that’s happened over the past 5 years I just think I’m sure Emily has a good heart etc but no her being Labour leader, Clive Lewis seems to be a genuinely nice guy who’s on the left of the party but I don’t necessarily think nice guys always make great leaders.

Clive Lewis & Emily Thornberry

I did hear a Labour backbench MP say yesterday that no member of Corbyn’s frontbench team should be standing in the Labour leadership election as the entire shadow cabinet are collectively guilty for one of Labour’s worse ever General Election defeat which GE2019 definitely was, but if this is any kind of endorsement between the lines of Jess Phillips then please fuck off. Jess Phillips is another Labour MP who its rumoured to be thinking of entering the Labour leadership contest, sure she’s been dropping hints she might but this is what Jess archetypically does, she’s a publicity whore who yanks people’s chains to grab headlines but never follows through. All solidarity with Jess when it comes to all the shit she was subjected to by Carl from Swindon, aka Carl Benjamin, aka weirdo rapey tweet man, no female MP in fact no woman should ever be subjected to the rapey bullshit that fat slobby fuck subjected Jess Phillips to & why the fuck isn’t he in prison for it I don’t know, but my problem with Jess Phillips isn’t just she’s a self-serving attention seeking publicity whore, it’s also that she has endorsed WPUK a known transphobic hate group, yeah Jess is a TERF.

As yet I’m not sure as who I’ll back to be Labour leader, I had wanted Angela Rayner to stand to be the next Labour leader but it appears she’s made a pact with Rebecca Long-Bailey & will now only be standing for Deputy Labour leader the position Tom Watson vacated to take up a career as a gym instructor. One thing I’m clear about already clear in my mind about in regards to the Labour leadership election is that if Jess Philips does enter the contest & has any sniff of being elected leader or as consequence of a good showing in the leadership contest is rewarded with a position in the shadow cabinet, I will withdraw my support for Labour considering Philips is a TERF & for fucks sake there should not be any countenance of transphobia within Labour a party which purports to be the party of equality & social justice.

Thoughts On Which Party Is Possibly Best When It Comes To The Issue Of Trans Rights

This past Sunday morning I was as per usual watching the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show being the political anorak that I’m & completely out of nowhere Andrew Marr asked Labour’s Angela Rayner whether the party was planning to make it easier for those people choosing to transition gender when it comes to legally self-identifying? Err? What? Marr you transphobic plank, I can testify as a trans woman myself that you don’t choose to be trans it’s ain’t a lifestyle choice! Angela Rayner did pull Andrew Marr up for making out that being transgender was a ‘lifestyle choice’ & then proceeded to detail many of the issues trans people face & that she fully supports trans equality.

I know that members of the Labour leadership such as Angela Raynor & Dawn Butler are strong supporters of trans people & trans rights, in fact I met Dawn Butler last year when she gave a speech in support of trans people at a conference that I was attending & her speech I remember was something which triggered a tsunami of abuse on social-media directed at Dawn personally from transphobic gobshite bigots. Transphobic bigots are again unhappy with Dawn because as Labour’s shadow equalities minister she has said there should be no discrimination against trans people regards single-sex spaces, yes I know it’s a fucking outrageous idea that trans people should be able to eat at the same lunch counter as cis people, for us be able to drink from the same water fountain, trans people we should know our place at the back of the bus & we must absolutely never use the same toilets as cis people. Despite from what Dawn Butler & Angela Raynor have said in support of trans people during the election campaign, some trans people have accused Labour of dog whistle transphobia in its manifesto as it states in the manifesto that a Labour government would enforce exemptions regards single-sex spaces, in other words they’d enforce discrimination against trans people, so there does seem to be a contradiction between what the manifesto states regards equality for trans people & what Labour politicians are saying regards equality for trans people.

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson appeared directly after Angela Rayner on this past Sunday’s edition of the Andrew Marr Show & Andrew Marr asked Swinson in a similar manner about the Lib Dems support to make it easier for trans people to self-identify & not have to jump through hoops to validate our gender identity as we have to currently, the Lib Dems have certainly been banging the drum as loud as they are able to this election campaign about their support for trans equality & there is a decent chance at this election that one of their parliamentary candidates Helen Belcher being elected as Britain’s first trans MP. But how much the Lib Dems love to loudly trumpet that they’re uber champions of trans equality, they don’t think other oppressed minorities such as disabled people deserve greater social-justice & though at a national level the Lib Dems are all very pro LGBTQ that’s not necessarily the same at a local level because I do recall a local Lib Dem councillor telling round the time civil partnerships became legal for same-sex couples that she had nothing against gays & lesbians just so long as they didn’t live next door to her.

Tory slime ball & cokehead Michael was also on the Andrew Marr Show this past Sunday, but Andrew Marr didn’t ask the Tory slime-ball & cokehead where the Tories stood regards making it easier for trans people to self-identify, strange to me as he’d asked Labour’s Angela Rayner & Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson where they stand on the issue & strange because it was the Tories who first under David Cameron & then Theresa May were pushing to make it easier for trans people to self-identify. My understanding is that the Tories have dropped support for reforms to the Gender Recognition Act since Boris moved into No10 & he’s also appointed known Tory transphobes to top jobs in the cabinet such as Liz Truss who has links with a transphobic hate group. Obvious to me the Tories are moving to the hard right with Boris Johnson at the helm, which likely means if they’re re-elected on December 12th then there’s going to be a government far less supportive of trans people & far less friendly to the wider LGBTQ community.

I often get complaints from fellow trans people about not writing enough about trans issues, maybe I don’t write enough about trans issues but there are other issues which equally affect me because I’m much more then just trans. What I’m essentially saying to trans people is don’t get to wrapped up in the importance of trans rights that it blinds you to other issues at stake with this General Election which will affect you, yes most definitely trans rights are important you needn’t tell me as I’m a trans woman who in her time has been an extremely vocal trans activist, but what good are rights & equality if the environment is becoming so fucked up its become inhabitable.
