Keir Starmer’s Moral Crossroads: Power, Politics, and Human Rights

Speaking to LBC, Kier Starmer said “Israel has the right to do everything it can to get those hostages back safe and sound and Israel has the right to withhold power and water from Palestinian civilians”. 

In the twisted folds of legal lore,
Starmer, once a rights defender, it seems no more.
Declared, “Gaza under siege, let them endure,
No access to essentials, a stance obscure.”

A backtrack followed, after public disdain,
Yet, no ceasefire plea, just a political game.
An MP ousted for seeking peace,
In the face of conflict, a leadership cease.

Where learned he such a convoluted law?
Backing Netanyahu, a choice with flaw.
The butcher of Gaza, a grim embrace,
Children’s lives at stake, in this moral maze.

Agreeing to starve the innocent souls,
Leaves us pondering, as empathy strolls.
Speechless we are, at this ethical decay,
In a ballad of critique, we question the way.
