Rightly so. These fanatics are a threat to democracy and freedom of speech. This behaviour of trying to intimidate people who hold different opinions to your own has to stop. The people doing it have to be stopped.

We are heading down a very dark road if using threats, abuse, harassment, violence and intimidation are seen as acceptable behaviour.


I haven't seen anything, who are you on about?

Let me guess is it that plump blonde woman at the Trump protest shouting Nazi scum?

Had high hopes that the cardigan brigade would not protest on D-Day ... but it seems they just couldn't help themselves ... cries of "Nazi, Nazi" just what the veterans wanted to hear I'm sure .... wrong time, wrong place, show a little bit of respect ....

What the f**k is Corbyn prattling on about as well. Criticising Trump for 'attacking our Mayor Siddique Khan on this holy day of Eid'.

The stupid old fool has completely lost the plot.

It might sound harsh but this behaviour is symptomatic of the climate we live in .......... which is no repercussions.

People these days mainly because of cameras and iphone recordings feel safe to abuse people without any consequences.

People may applaud the safety aspect of it but it is not becoming of how people start acting because of it, if this was the 90's somebody would of probably chinned that woman.

Without the threat of consequences comes a complete lack of respect and discourse.

I'm not advocating violence but its just a fact.

Its a bit like how kids act up when they don't fear or respect their parents, same, same.

I have to agree with all of that.

And if people think they can rely on the Police to deal with it, think again. If you watch the video you'll see a police officer standing not 2 feet away, and doing nothing.

So Brexiteers

Your overlord wants to sell off the NHS to his mate Trump

Mr Farage later handed in a letter to Downing Street calling for his party's MEPs to be included in the UK's Brexit negotiating team.

He told reporters he believed the NHS should be included in future US trade negotiations despite the political outcry when Donald Trump raised the possibility earlier this week - comments which the US president subsequently appeared to row back on.

The allegations centre around lies he told during the referendum campaign

This is a private prosecution but private prosecutions have to meet a legal standard before they are allowed to proceed.

This case has met the test after going before a District Judge and there will now be a trial


The High Court have quite rightly thrown it out.

Mr Johnson, a former Foreign Secretary, was handed a summons to attend Westminster Magistrates' Court on 29 May.

'Vexatious prosecution'
But at a High Court hearing in London, Lady Justice Rafferty and Mr Justice Supperstone overturned this decision.

Addressing Mr Johnson's barrister, Adrian Darbishire QC, Lady Justice Rafferty said: "We are persuaded, Mr Darbishire, so you succeed, and the relief that we grant is the quashing of the summonses."


Mr Johnson's lawyers had sought to say the district judge who issued the summons got the law wrong.

The Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP's legal team argued that the offence of misconduct in public office was about the secret abuse of power and there was nothing secret about Mr Johnson's claim, which they said had been challenged during the campaign.


Seems pretty straightforward.

Speaking outside court, Mr Ball said he had spent more than the £300,000 he raised on the case, leaving him in "massive debt".


Good.

Amazing. If all politicians were sued for lying, we'd all be on jury service for our entire lives.

I must admit, though, the idea of Boris Johnson as PM (a real possibility) is rather worrisome.

When Brexit does happen and the people that told you they would spend 350m a week on the NHS are privatising the f**k out of the NHS, will you cheer when they retire on massive public pensions with no responsibility?

Let me guess, you didnt believe the 350m, but how many of your fellow voters did to get the foxes in the hen house?

My reason for being happy about the court’s decision is solely because the private prosecution was aimed at nothing more than disrupting Boris Johnson’s attempt to become the next PM, and our courts should not be used for such things.

As the court described it - a vexatious prosecution, not brought about in good faith.

That stupid idiot who brought it about has made his bed. Let him lay in it.

Agreed. Any right thinking person could see it was just vexatious litigation designed to try and derail Boris. If anything, it will actually gain support for Boris (if the MPs let him get to the members, but they daren't because they know he will win if the rank and file Tories can vote for him) rather than Cokehead Gove or Jeremy C*nt.
