The extreme-Left “Antifa” pretend I pose a threat-to-the-peace at the by-election hustings in Lewisham East. The only threat I pose is to weak career politicians, the only threat to peace comes from “Antifa”.
Lewisham East by-election hustings
I had an interesting conversation with a journalist today. She asked about the threat-to-the-peace my presence poses at the upcoming Lewisham East by-election hustings. There is a a threat, as I explained to her. “Those of us who point out uncomfortable truths about Islam and mass immigration face regular threats. Most of which comes from a violent extreme Left egged on by a smearing press.”
An article in a local Lewisham newspaper reveals the Orwellian absurdity of the entire affair. Referring to hustings held during the general election of 2015, when I also stood in Lewisham East, writer Bridie Witton declares that “Discussions were moderated by a chairman and she did not cause any problems”. Quite right, I didn’t cause any problems. It was me who had police protection on the night. As far as I’m aware, nobody needed police protection from me.
The feral thugs of the hard left-wing have tried to obstruct the meetings of my party on many occasions. By intimidating venues and threatening physical disruption. I have never done this. When was the last time an ‘Antifa’ meeting was cancelled because of threats from For Britain? Or anyone else on their fantasy “far-right”?
I’ve seen the hatred of these thugs up-close on more than one occasion, and in Denmark I saw them launch an unprovoked violent attack on Tommy Robinson. At every out-door rally I’ve attended, I’ve seen police attention directed towards protecting us from fascist “anti-fascists”, often masked and quite possibly with hidden weapons.
Conservative party candidate
A second journalist today informed me that the Conservative party candidate in Lewisham will join with Labour and boycott the hustings. How frightened they must be. Here, of course, is the real threat I pose – the threat to the career politicians and their well-rehearsed soundbites. Politicians who have no answers to the questions I raise, or for their parties’ repeated failures.
A major policy area to For Britain is crime, and as we all know, crime is exploding. Murder rates in London are at shocking levels (rising 44% in just one year), and violent crime reports have increased by 67.9% in Lewisham since 2012.
This is the result of a Conservative government that has decimated police numbers since it came to power in 2010 (while continuing to send billions abroad).
