POSTERS criticising the Labour Party’s official stance on the ongoing war in Gaza have appeared in Ian Murray’s constituency in Edinburgh.

Masquerading as campaign posters for the Labour Party itself, the posters take aim at Murray’s backing of Keir Starmer’s position on Gaza.

Starmer has consistently refused to call for a permanent ceasefire. 

However, he recently said that a “humanitarian truce” could provide the conditions for the release of hostages.

Many within the Labour Party have criticised the leader's stance amid the ongoing bloodshed in Palestine, with more than 25,000 people in Gaza estimated to have been killed in Israeli attacks since October.

The posters utilise a fabricated quote attributed to Keir Starmer, paraphrasing a interview he gave to LBC back in October.

The Labour leader was asked by presenter Nick Ferrari whether Israel had the right to conduct a siege in Gaza, cutting off power and water for millions of people.

Starmer responded by saying that he did believe Israel had that right.

Alongside a picture of both Starmer and Murray, the poster reads: “Israel had the right to block food, water and electricity to 2 million Palestinians in Gaza – Keir Starmer”.

It continues: “A vote for Labour is a vote for genocide under Starmer”.

Posting video of campaigners sticking posters up on bus stops and bins around Murray’s constituency, the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign said: “If you’re around Edinburgh South today you might see some interesting campaigning posters.

“@keirstarmer you can’t hide, you’re supporting genocide.

“@ianmurray you can’t hide you’re supporting genocide. No vote for those complicit in Gaza genocide”.

Neither Ian Murray nor fellow Labour MP Michael Shanks voted to call for a ceasefire in Gaza after the SNP forced a vote on the subject in the House of Commons in November.

It comes after Starmer was criticised for saying that a future Labour government wouldn’t immediately recognise Palestinian statehood.
