Keir Starmer lied to become Labour leader: it’s really that simple.
It’s not about changing circumstances. He just knew Labour members were left-wing so he had to say things he didn’t really believe to become Labour leader. https://t.co/SdK6W8jaht

As part of my #NewYearResolutions, I pledge to be an ally to the LGBT+ community. We must continue to support the LGBT+ community and continue to work to ensure that our society is one where LGBT+ people can live their lives free from hate.
It should concern everyone that an MP and the chair of the Women and Equalities Committee says live on TV:
"There are people who are born in the wrong body"
This is biologically impossible and logically absurd. https://t.co/PSX25r8JMQ
