Unsullied by oiky little trade unions and what not, individuals gave trifling sums of forty, fifty and sixty thousand pounds to Keir Starmer's Leadership campaign. But they clearly draw the line at funding the Labour Party under his "Leadership".
At least one union that stuck with the party even under Tony Blair is planning to disaffiliate, and the new General Secretary of Unite has made it clear that she is just not interested in the Labour Party. That party, which was healthily solvent under Jeremy Corbyn, is now on the brink of bankruptcy.
90 staff are therefore facing the sack, and the staff have duly voted to strike. No one did more than the staff to lose Corbyn's Labour the 2017 General Election. Yet even they have had more than enough of Starmer.
