Ella ‘ Let’s rise above it’ … lofty aims, not much good to those that Antifa put in hospital though !
Antifa promote violence, organize violence , have a uniform, an intimidating one at that .. all black, black boots black sunglasses .. yes I know that underneath that tough uniform there lurks spotty faced skinny middle class white students scared to be alone , but none the less it is designed to be intimidating.
Freedom of speech cannot be universal , it ends at the point of promoting violence , Antifa do this.
If this continues there will be a backlash from the other side which ultimately downgrades our civility in politics. It has to stop somewhere, I think it is now.

If you want to see real madness Y Tube Anne Widdecombe on Newsweek on the BBC, the interviewer ( forget her name ) is virtually calling Anne a racist because she mentioned the EU was an oppressor and accused her of using white privilege. I actually thought it was spoof at first .. quite an astonishing attack on Anne, which Anne wasted no time in demolishing the clearly faux outraged angry presenter on behalf of black slaves.. that don’t even exist anymore. Well worth a viewing.

What Emma Barnett meant by white privilege is how dare Anne W use slavery as a metaphor when that “belongs” to black people – usefully showing her utter ignorance at the fact that there have been plenty of white slaves through history.

What set me off was the head tilting; Barnett was debating like a stroppy teenage girl.

Pissed as a handcart – most of the time.

Is Juncker’s amorous behaviour to all genders possible sexual misconduct? OR, is it just the drink?
