GB News host Darren McCaffrey reflected on the Labour Party’s discipline as a party and Sir Keir Starmer’s leadership. He insisted the party does not have message discipline as MPs have publicly disagreed with ministers choices and strategies. He also argued deputy leader Angela Rayner may be making things worse by stoking the fires of an ongoing row.

Mr McCaffrey said: “I think the Labour Party have got an opportune moment.

“But the problem is, I went to a fringe meeting yesterday which Stephen Kinnock was at.

“He said one of the reasons he thinks the Conservative Party are so successful is that they have got message discipline.

“They have got a line, sometimes it only includes three words but they stick to it.”

Mr McCaffrey highlighted a moment he experienced at the Labour Conference that showcased the tensions in the Labour Party.

He claimed: “Today I listened to Rachel Reeves speech in the hall, particularly that announcement about tens of billions of pounds for a new fund to tackle climate change.

“I walked down the hallway to another fringe meeting with John McDonnell and he is already slagging it off.

“He is saying it is not good enough, that it doesn’t go as far as they were promising.

“This is the big problem for the Labour Party, like with Angela Rayner pushing out those tweets, stoking the fire on the row.

“Really? Is that what the Labour Party want to be conveyed from this conference.

“Either a lack of message discipline and the deputy leader stoking up a row on whether it is appropriate to call the Prime Minister and the Conservative Party, scum or not.”

Mr McCaffrey closed by concluding Keir Starmer needed to show leadership for everyone underneath him in the party.

He said: “The country is looking for an alternative Government, alternative policies.

“Yet the Labour Party, at the moment, still doesn’t seem to have that discipline.

“Or they don’t seem to have the authority from the very top to make sure that there is proper control when it comes to messaging.”
