You're right of course, many wouldn't agree. And that is essentially the problem.

And yet otherwise intelligent people continue to believe things that even the most cursory of rational analysis would demonstrate to be complete nonsense.

It is that collective refusal to acknowledge reality that has led us to this point, and unless that "spell" is broken, it will be the thing that leads us to continue to pursue what is essentially a policy of national self harm.

If so we should probably help reform that after we remain in/return to the EU.
United Kingdom: In the United Kingdom, certain people are disqualified from becoming a Member of the Parliament, including those:

serving a prison sentence of more than one year;
found guilty of certain electoral offences (i.e.: corrupt or illegal practices) by the Electoral Court.
The disqualification for membership of the House of Commons lasts for the time of pursuance of the sentence.

I've got a bad feeling about any EU elections. If a Brexit party fields a candidate it will Hoover up all the leave votes while the remain will split between the others.

Latest polls have UKIP on 4/5% and Brexit party on 28-30%. It is looking possible that if the elections are held and the UK is not out of the EU by the end of June that we will be sending more Eurosceptic MEPs to Brussels this time than we did last time.

Assaulting any potential candidate is not acceptable we live in a democracy the price of that is that you need to allow people you disagree with to campaign in the same way you do the party of your choice.


Support the assault of any candidate only serves to highlight your own ignorance !

Whilst TR is a bell... it doesnít sit that well with me that people are rejoicing in him being attacked. I can see some right wing supporter retaliating.

Thin end of the wedge n all that.

First it was vanilla milkshake and next it will be strawberry. If we donít get this under control it will escalate to McFlurrys before long.

How about the majority of innocent people being negatively affected by the intolerance? In Tommy Robinson’s case, Muslims.

Is it violent to throw a milkshake at someone? It isnít going to hurt or physically damage anyone is it?

On the other hand punching the thrower of said milkshake three times while your thugs hold him so he canít move to protect himself is violent and quite likely to physically hurt or damage someone isnít it?

He was intimidating the bloke with his thugs and the bloke threw a milkshake at him and was punched repeatedly as a result yet the bloke is being condemned for Ďpolitical violenceí

Itís a weird world.
