I agree with that, but at the same time when you have Starmer making more of the issue of Corbyn by denying the whip ahead of pointing out the issues those attacking Labour have, which are arguably far broader and larger, it's making it easy for them.Standard attack lines really. Would hold more weight if the Tories had shown any interest whatsoever about dealing with their own Islamophobia and AS issues TBH.
Corbyn handled AS poorly, and the issue with him was it was too rife too close to him, but the idea that Labour is the worst party and has some unique poison it must rid itself of first is pure naked politics. By all measures Labour is one of the least racist memberships around.
This is just the right trying to keep their punching bag relevant a bit longer. Like you’ll see the Democrats try and attach whoever is next to Trump.
Admittedly it's a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't issue, because if he goes for the Tories record it's just shouts of "Ignoring anti-semitism in his own party", or 'brushed under the carpet/whitewash' if he lets Corbyn back in without a fuss. I reckon Starmer could take the position he has with Corbyn IF he was also attacking the Tories more vehemently on their track record and the Islamophobia enquiry that still hasn't happened, but at the moment if feels like he's making his own party look more guilty while letting the Tories off.
