Owen Jones, Aaron Bastani and the rest of the ideologically pure crowd will be frustrated that they can’t stick it to Starmer like they had hoped, after cosying up to Galloway and making excuses for him.
Bastani was doing a “what Labour should have done to win” before declaration, causing egg to land on his face. Of course they are now pivoting to “they didn’t win by enough.” Nothing would be for these agenda driven lefties who just want Corbyn back.
They will stoop to siding with Galloway to own the centrists. Yet they will portray anyone to the right of Tony Benn as irredeemable if they ally themselves with anyone not ideologically pure enough, presenting themselves as squeaky clean moral arbiters. Let their alliance with a homophobic, atrocity denying, sexist bully like Galloway (when they condemn others for allying with far more moral people) be a signal to others that they don’t truly care about moral principles. They just want some hard left crank in who they can say is a ‘true socialist.’
