Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
obviously all very depressing. at no point has any conservative politician ever had the courage to stand up to the nicotine-stained fascist man frog or his buddies in the more weird yet dangerous wing of the party. (and labour aren't much better)or the DUP - the idea that these tiny groups of very unpleasant and regressive people are driving the political agenda and causing immense division and conflict in our society is incredible. when farage and his thuggish supporters talk about 'betrayal' and 'treachery' they are deliberately intimidating our mps and all of us who dare to disagree or even attempt to put a bit of nuance into the debate. their like should be prosecuted for hate crimes - and murder in the case of Jo Cox. while in jail they could be forced to watch re-runs of the opening ceremony of the london olympics to remind them of the sort of country that the majority of us would prefer. and made aware that this is the country that raised them - not the grubby, wee bitter, little england with it's racism, greed,hunting and their sneering contempt of all who try to live in a happier, more positive, way.
