Extremism? Does anyone really think that environmental campaigners are a danger to our society? Should we not be welcoming the challenge that such campaigners bring to our democracy? Is Orwell’s 1984 being taken as a ‘guide’ to how our society should be organised?

Goodness me, I must be viewed as being an ‘extremist’ then as I look upon myself as an environmental campaigner! I wonder whose radar I am on for protesting about building on Green Belt and high grade agricultural land in Sefton?

Big Brother seems to be be watching a lot of people!

Another powerful commentary from Nick Cohen on what happens when you play the racism card.

This quote is chilling – ‘It is still not true to say that race and immigration were all that mattered to everyone who voted leave. But they were all that mattered to Vote Leave. Mainstream Tories accepted that creating and exploiting fear would take them to victory. They played with fire and you can hear the flames crackling.’
