It's nothing to do with me. The rhetoric that comes from supporters of Trump and supporters of Brexit is almost identical and for many it is absolutely identical.

The anti foreigner comment/protest, the anti certain religious groups, the wall, the reinforced borders....

That's got bugger all to do with my opinions.

It's really pathetic the way some come out with this supposedly neutral crap and yet only ever attack one side. You're not fooling anyone.

Quite funny, all the evidence, all the reasons why can be read on here.

It certainly does have to do with your opinions, prejudices and stereotypes. The vast majority of reasons have been given by people for voting for Trump and Brexit that have absolutely nothing to do with race, yet you have an entire post library here where you try to stuff anyone with a different opinion into one big bogeyman box, regardless of whether they are centre-left, centre or far right - including your wild and false claims about my own voting history.

I actually want to win the next election, and to do so the extreme and radical policy positions that have evolved over the last 10 years need to be binned in order to reclaim the centre ground. When politicans have cross-party appeal, that is a sign of strength and electability. It isn't a weakness to be viewed with suspicion.

Which one are you thinking? I can think of two who have been very much targeted repeatedly, curious how an outlander sees it.

Neither of those two things is necessarily bad however that rhetoric is coming from the United States. As an island nation we shouldn't have to worry about such things however we often do find ourselves worrying about them because of how utterly inept the continental Europeans are when it comes to external border security and deporting illegal migrants from their respective countries.

May I suggest you get one that fits slightly better than either of them?

Beanpoles, those two, aren’t they? Must be hard to get a suit jacket that fits nicely when you’re that shape.

Both attract racist voters.

Sounds pretty similar.
I guess people find the woke's ability to pretend a 52% vote is really a 37% one somewhat detestable. Their somewhat flexible idea of democracy seems to make them more like other authoritarian regimes from history rather than truly enlightened progressives.
