Yeah, any wabbit rabbit that talks like that should be dealt with severely.

Been saying this for years, and been shouted down for my troubles. These so called progressives fail to comprehend that they're dealing with real, fallible human beings, not robots. You can feed facts into a robot without fear that emotions will foil the anticipated results. Hearts and minds are equally as important as facts, and they repeatedly show that they don't understand it. Then when there is a backlash, it's all the common racist scum's fault. If they were truly progressive then they'd be more self critical and address the faults that they currently are oblivious to.
its this arrogance that many people get fed up with, so in that respect brexit and Trump are very much related.
The saddest part of it for me is that I like the socialist message they preach, as do many other working class people, but they always seem to screw up their own chances with their vote for us or you're a bigoted idiot mantra.
This lesson is taking such an inordinately long time to sink in, I starting to doubt their intelligence, they preach diplomacy and tact to the likes of Johnson and Trump, then fail to use them with the people whose support they want. Address this, and the tories won't get a look in.

Yep, right you are, mate. Unfortunately they have betrayed their working class base for that which is described here:
