An earlier article on this topic.

We are in the middle of a general election campaign in UK. Labour Party Deputy Leader Angela Rayner made these remarks in mid February 2022. She made these statements – calling for innocent people to be killed and harassed by police, calling for human rights to be totally disregarded. She was then and continues to be Deputy Leader of the Labour Party. It is totally correct that these remarks are highlighted and discussed now. She is representing the Labour Party in the most senior position except one when making these remarks. Keir Starmer, leader of the UK Labour Party is often referred to as a human rights lawyer. WTF? Do these Fascists really think that they’re fit to govern?

I have conducted a great deal of independent research into the London explosions of 7 July 2005 and the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes on 22 July 2005. While not all of it has been published, I am confident that I have an excellent understanding of these issues and what actually happened. I would expect to have a far better understanding that Angela Rayner although Keir Starmer may actually have been involved in the cover-ups.

To clarify: I’ve found a Morning Star article from 2022 that indicates that Angela Rayner made these comments in late January 2022. The sequence would therefore be
1. Angela Rayner makes these comments in late January 2022.
2. I post on the issue 15 Feb 2022.
3. Dianne Abbott – then elected as an MP, not technically an MP currently since Parliament is in recess – raises the issue so that the media pays attention.

Added the link to the Morning Star article above. There is also a Morning Star Editorial: ‘Shoot first and ask questions after:’ a reactionary taunt that protects no-one published 18 February 2022.

Angela Rayner calls on police to ‘Shoot your terrorists and ask questions second’

Labour’s deputy leader, Angela Rayner, has been criticised after saying she wants police to “shoot your terrorists and ask questions second.”

Speaking to Matt Forde’s Political Party podcast, Rayner said she was “quite hardline” on law and order and suggested police should “antagonise” criminals.

Among those criticising Rayner was the former shadow home secretary Diane Abbott, who said: “Is Angela suggesting a mandatory death sentence for suspected (but not convicted) “terrorists” ?” she tweeted.

Rayner was also criticised by the leftwing grassroots group Momentum. Sonali Bhattacharyya, of Momentum’s national coordinating group, said: “These remarks are deeply concerning. It was this approach that led to the assassination of Jean Charles de Menezes.

“You can’t kneel for racial justice one day, then praise shoot-to-kill powers for the police the next.

Zionist Labour Friends of Israel supporter Rayner is calling on police to kill and harass innocent people. She’ll be pleased with Israel’s continuing genocide – Gazans are called terrorists after being murdered just like Jean Charles de Menezes. Fascists who disregard basic human rights should not be elected to political office.

“This purging of loyal members in favour of subservient candidates reflects a party more concerned with power than principles.”

The row over Labour’s last minute deselection of general election candidates continues to rumble on. In a new development, seven Labour Councillors in Slough have quit the party over, among other things, the decision to block Faiza Shaheen from standing as a Labour candidate.

In a letter published on June 3, the seven Councillors cite a number of reasons for their decision including concerns over the democratic processes in the Labour Party. They go on to write that the deselection of Shaheen and the treatment of Diane Abbott “highlight the institutional racism within the party”.

They added: “This purging of loyal members in favour of subservient candidates reflects a party more concerned with power than principles. Slough [Constituency Labour Party], predominantly composed of BAME members, has faced threads of deselection for speaking out against injustices in Gaza and criticising Israel.”

Their letter concludes by saying: “We have exhausted every party mechanism to ensure our residents’ concerns were heard at both local and national levels. In light of these insurmountable barriers, we, the rank-and-file members, are left with no option but to resign. We must stay true to our values and conscience, even if the party we once believed in has abandoned them.”

Diane Abbott has accused Labour of carrying out a “cull of leftwingers” after she and others were blocked or dissuaded from standing for the party.

The veteran Labour MP vowed on Wednesday to stay on for “as long as it is possible” after a deal for her to retire from parliament broke down.

The row, which has angered and frustrated some Labour MPs and staff, escalated on Thursday after two leftwing candidates were blocked from standing for the party in the general election.

Faiza Shaheen, who had been Labour’s candidate in Chingford and Woodford Green, told BBC Two’s Newsnight she received an email telling her she had been deselected after the decision was first made public in the Times.

Responding to the news on X, Abbott said: “Appalling. Whose clever idea has it been to have a cull of left wingers?”

Lloyd Russell-Moyle, the MP for Brighton Kemptown, announced he had been suspended from the party on Wednesday afternoon and would not be allowed to stand for Labour at the election.

Diane Abbott ‘has Labour whip restored but banned from election run’

DIANE Abbott has had the Labour whip restored less than one day after Keir Starmer’s claims that an internal party probe into her was still “ongoing” were revealed to be untrue.

However, she is still to be banned from standing for the party at the next General Election, according to reports.

The PA news agency said that Abbott was given the Labour whip back following an internal investigation into comments she made suggesting that white minorities do not experience “racism” in the same way as others.

As Starmer used comments aimed at Abbott from Tory donor Frank Hester to attack his Conservative opponents in March, he also claimed she could not be given back the Labour whip because that internal probe into her was still ongoing.

However, the BBC reported on Monday night that the investigation had actually concluded in December, 2023.
