Why does Labour hate its voters?

Has any political project so despised it’s own electorate before? I’ll wait.

The end of this work week was marked by millionaire QC Sir Keir Starmer pandering to this country’s hatred of young people, throwing one of the most economically precarious groups, and Labour’s most solid group of voters, under the bus. It raises a broader question, why does Labour hate its own voters so much these days? It seems to spend most of the time apologising for and disavowing its own voters as out of touch or racist for supporting Labour under the previous leader. Let’s look at a few recent examples of this.
