all those who have made anti-islamic and antisemitic comments yet hung on like limpets.
Refreshing change to see someone admit their error and resign - wonder if it will be catching.
I think it shows the Brexit Party are no different from UKIP, BNP, EDL etc.
or Labour or the Tories..
face it - all the time past indiscretions get dragged up about politicians from every Party. The idea that one shower is above the fray is hilarious. I'm old enough to remember when the Liberals played the homophobia card.
The leader of the Brexit Party has resigned over anti-Islam Twitter messages:
Leader of Nigel Farage's party resigns over anti-Islam messages
That makes a change..
I think alot of whats happened in NZ has had an impact here. The NZ people and its leader have come out in full support of the Muslims and stood side by side with the Muslim community in NZ. This open support is a new thing and no doubt a shock to some people. One example of this is biker gangs saying they will stand guard outside mosques as Muslims pray inside.
If the tragedy in NZ hadnt happened, would she have resigned? I dont think so, as the tweets were made before she took the role as the leader - so are old tweets. So it makes me think whats changed that she has now resigned. I have come up with a couple of things, firstly is NZ the other being that someone has dirt on her and has blackmailed her into resigning. I am sure there are other possibilities but wont waste time thinking about her or them.
Didn't she resign because Nigel Farage advised her to after Hope Not Hate located the tweets that she wrote and shared in 2017/2018 before she deleted the account? I don't see how it's blackmail, more that she was caught and, as the leader of Farage's new party, he didn't want the bad press. Essentially, she wrote numerous nasty tweets and shared other far right tweets yet supposedly left UKIP because of its' Islamophobia.
Wrong thread, but yes that is not good at all. I really despair at all the political parties in the UK. What the fudge is wrong with them.
