The caller known as ‘Glynn’ took furious aim at the direction of the Labour Party under Keir Starmer in a rant to talkRADIO host Mike Graham on Tuesday. He claimed the party lost heavily in last week’s local elections in England because the party “doesn’t like Britain or the British”. He went on to explain why he thinks Labour are losing popularity amongst Britons before launching a scathing attack on Labour leader Keir Starmer.
The caller blasted: “It seems to me that the reason Labour are doing so badly is because, purely, the party doesn’t like Britain or the British.”
Mike Graham interjected: “No. They don’t like anything to do with Britain, do they.”
In response, Glynn said: “They don’t like the history, they don’t like the way we live.”
Mr Graham chimed in: “They don’t like the flag. Look at the fuss that was kicked up when they suggested they might want to start using the flag more, half the party went nuts!”

The enraged responded by saying “why should they even have to think about doing that” before adding “they’re British!”
He went on to outline what has gone wrong for Labour, saying: “But you’ve got a leader who took the knee to a group who want to defund the police!
“He went out and spoke to a member of the electorate who was an actual Labour voter, said to him: ‘I’m not going to be lectured to by somebody like you’.”
The talkRADIO host concluded: “Incredible. Incredible arrogance!”

The furious caller’s comments come as Labour faced a drubbing at the local elections in England last week which has led to a backlash against the party’s leadership under Keir Starmer.
And Hartlepool, a former Labour heartland constituency which voted to leave the EU in 2016, elected a Conservative MP for the first time in its history.
Conservative Jill Mortimer sealed a massive 6,940 majority in the North-East town, overturning a 3,595 Labour Party majority from the 2019 General election.
Labour also lost scores of councils across England in a heavy election defeat across the board, apart from in London where Labour’s Sadiq Khan was re-elected for a second term as Mayor of London with a large majority.

The results prompted Labour leader Keir Starmer to conduct a shadow cabinet reshuffle which saw campaign manager and chair of the Labour party Angela Rayner binned from her job and made shadow first secretary of state, shadow chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and shadow secretary of state for the Future of Work.
Shadow Chancellor Anneliese Dodds and Chief Whip Nick Brown also lost their roles during the post-election reshuffle after the devastating election results for Labour.
Former Duchy of Lancaster Rachel Reeves was also appointed to shadow Chancellor, while Mr Brown was replaced as shadow Chief Whip by Alan Campbell, and Thangam Debbonaire was moved to shadow Commons leader.
Along with losing Hartlepool, Labour also lost control of eight councils and a massive 326 councillors across England while the Tories have added 13 councils and 235 councillors to their tally.
