I mean, I get your point that people don’t pay that much attention to it and I don’t think they do, which is why they don’t explore the full details. This makes it very important to create good impressions. Starmer suspending someone and it being overturned makes him appear weak to the public on a surface level. That’s my point. I am sure on this specific issue people aren’t necessarily thinking of the anti-Semitism, on the whole, but they can see that Starmer isn’t getting his own way and interpret that as the party being out of control from him. Is it over for Starmer? Of course not, but it doesn’t look good. Polls suggested that the majority backed Corbyn’s suspension; letting him back in and going against this is not going to be a positive.
As for it being a healthy discussion or not, I’ve tried to express my points without slander. I know I’m not perfect, and can see the sarcasm may have irritated. I did get irritated when I interpreted an unfair characterisation of my motive. I make mistakes, I know, but I don’t see why it needs to be like that. I don’t think that, on the whole, I have been undue. I thought it was just a disagreement.
