Ramblingrose22 are you suggesting that Starmer should be above criticism?
If the story is untrue he has only to give out a press statement saying so.
This perpetual slagging off of and sniping against the Labour leader is probably down to Corbyn hero-worship. IMO it's an obsession
This made me burst out laughing! If only someone had been prepared to say something similar when the press and media were destroying Corbyn.
It's not worshipping anyone to expect a LP leader to behave in an ethical, democratic, principled way, something Starmer seems incapable of doing.
