Sir Kiel Starmer says the Labor government will not try to nationalize the six major energy companies, clearly away from the promise of his leadership campaign to “support common ownership of railroads, mail, energy and water.” Stated.
It comes after a new poll by poll. MeFound that more than 50% of the population support the renationalization of energy companies, while more than 10% oppose it.
Nationalization of energy companies was one of Jeremy Corbyn’s flagship plans in the 2019 general election manifesto.
However, current Labor leaders seem to have shelved the plan.
Sir Kiel was asked if he would nationalize the six major energy companies. Andrew Marr Show: “number.”
He was shown one of ten campaign pledges stating that “public services should be in the hands of the public” and “supporting common ownership of railroads, mail, energy and water”. ..
“No nationalization has been seen,” Sir Keir told Marr. “We disagree with the argument that we must be idealistic.”
Instead, Labor said it would only advocate nationalization if it provided taxpayers with improved value and services.
Labor leaders said:
“Let me elaborate. That is, if common ownership is the value of money to taxpayers and provides better service, I agree with common ownership.”
The policy shift has greatly supported Mr Corbyn and offended Momentum, a left-wing Labor group that helped him lead the party in 2015.
In response to Keir Starmer’s comment on public ownership at Marshaw, Momentum Co-Chair Andrew Scattergood said:
“Today’s members will have the opportunity to vote for the Socialist Green New Deal, which is centered on the public ownership of the energy industry.
“We need to embrace such a transformative vision to deal with future crises. Instead, leadership seems content to rely on neoliberal doctrine.”
“Remember the 10 pledges? This is even more evidence that Starmer has abandoned his leadership campaign promise.”
The Green New Deal move is currently being discussed on the conference floor, including regulations for nationalizing public transport and Big Six energy companies and 2030 net zero carbon emissions ambitions.
Former leader Edward Miliband, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in the Shadows of Sir Kiel, has promised a 10-year investment plan to “green” the steel industry, and Labor has “green and red.” “Together” said it would be a party.
Shadow Business Secretary has announced plans to help manufacturing companies decarbonize at a Labor Party meeting on Sunday.
He promised the Labor Party would realize a “Green New Deal” for Britain.
