...and the tragedy is that such tactics work well in the often trancelike 'sharing' and 'liking' that goes on because 'a friend' posted X or Y picture/message/video. Any serious political/ideological group would be fools to ignore the opportunities in social media, yes, it is a tragedy.

The reason I say this, is that fascism, no matter how or why it is constructed, is never the answer to any question worth answering. No person who calls themselves British, should be able to forget the fact that more than 300,000 British servicemen fought and died to prevent such a system from ever reaching, or taking root on, these shores.

Nostalgia has nothing to do with it. Immigration Is the main factor, when a net migration of over 200,000 a year streams into a small island, which is the equivalent of a small city worth of people, then you need a city to accommodate these people.
Why is the NHS struggling? Because the current resources can't cope that's why.
Why are wages stagnating? Because cheap labour is easily found through foreign immigrants who live with several people in one small house that can afford to live off of cheap labour wages, which is much more than they could expect to gain from their own country's opportunities.
We have a soft touch benefits system where people travel from African nations and the middle east specifically to gain benefits. They could stop at any other European country along the way but then it wouldn't be el dorado which is why there are thousands at a time waiting at the port of Calais. There was a Somali family to give you an idea of these benefit cheats, that moaned and got a 2.1 million pound house in London paid for by tax payers because their other house wasn't big enough. What did they do to deserve it? Nothing! I work and I will most likely never live in a 2.1 million pound house but if someone does I at least want to know that they worked for it.
People that say that right wing politics is dangerous, but when you've been so far left, you need to balance it back out. Sometimes I think the people who post on this site live in grand country homes in the English county side that don't seem to be affected by the same every day problems as us normal people.
If it's so wrong and bad to want to make tough decisions that can save our country, then why do you think so much of the British public are waking up and taking a stand for these right wing policies that they believe will benefit the country? I'll tell you, it's because a large proportion of the population in the UK are right and anyone who still can't see the destruction imposed on our country by the Labour government is blind and always will be.
Some of you wouldn't want to stand and fight for the right thing even if it was smashing your head a against a brick wall. People can keep calling us racists and fascists, which is hilarious by the way, but until you wake up to see the elephant in the room, you'll always be ignorant to the main problems that are destroying this country.
