Owen Jones on Keir Starmer’s ‘gaslighting’, Labour’s Gaza stance, and coverage of Palestinians

"He’s gaslighting all of us," says British columnist Owen Jones on Keir Starmer’s stance on Gaza.

Today on Real Talk, we sit down with Jones for a candid discussion on the unfolding of the Israel-Palestine war in British politics, particularly Labour leader Keir Starmer and his party’s stance on the situation in Gaza, as it endures Israeli bombardment. We also speak on the "dehumanisation" of Palestinian voices and victims in the media.

This comes as new polling has shown a massive drop in support for the British Labour Party by the country's Muslim community, as anger over the party's pro-war stance on the Israeli onslaught on Gaza continues to mount.
