Dolan’s Digest: Starmer and the stealth campaign to cancel Brexit


WHEN Rishi Sunak stood outside Downing Street last week in the pouring rain, to the backdrop of a New Labour anthem blaring down Whitehall, it felt that the decision to go to the polls may have been rushed.

Indeed, rumours of a ‘snap’ General Election were not even being discussed in hushed tones in the days preceding the announcement; instead a frenzied social media onslaught of the nation’s commentariat on the Wednesday morning was the first the majority had heard of it.

Outside the upper echelons of the establishment, the prospect of a July vote seemed far-fetched. Despite this, we are now in the throes of an election campaign with an almost inevitable result.

If we cast our minds back to the start of 2020, when Jeremy Corbyn was ushered out of the Labour Party leader’s office and replaced by Sir Keir Starmer, the plan was set in motion for one of the most dishonest rises to power in recent electoral memory.

Since taking the mantle from Corbyn, Starmer, regardless of who was in Downing Street, the domestic political agenda or world politics, has remained almost silent on all major issues to distance himself from having any opinion on developments.

This was particularly evident through the pandemic, where the unilateral decision-making of the Government was dictatorial and draconian. If Starmer wanted to show how different the Labour Party is, maybe he could have spoken out against lockdown measures.

His silent rise to power is evidently a move by the establishment that traces itself all the way back to the Brexit vote. A staunch European, his ascent is an example of wanting one of their own to take the UK back into Europe, and the plan is already well in motion.

It is hard to predict anything other than that his first years in power will be catastrophic. The direction of travel at present is a slow economic decline amid geopolitical uncertainty, and Starmer is not the person with the vision or policies to get us out of it. Instead, what we will see is the decline in living standards and the economy gather at pace until a point where there is only one thing that the Labour Party will blame – Brexit. More and more will be attributed to the UK’s democratic decision to leave the European Union and the Tories’ handling of the economy, causing the country to be dragged into a second referendum on membership of the EU.

Our fear should be that circumstances will have deteriorated so badly, and a steady drumbeat of messaging will be conveyed to the public that all of the woes we are facing are as a result of Brexit, that there will be an overwhelming vote to re-enter the European fold.

When laid out, it is clear that the script has already been written. While Sunak is enjoying himself in sunny California, the UK will be entrapped in an economic spiral of decline and the most important democratic vote of many people’s lifetime will be slowly unravelled by the Labour Party – just as the establishment wanted all along.
