    control of the discourse in some way.

    what really does my nut in is that theres a good reason people actually hate them atm (I'm not justifying racist/miso/nazi stuff, although it will be used to justify whatever toothless measures are proposed) .

    Iron burns if you get it hot enough. :cool:

    Or if you are prepared to be patient, it rusts, which is a slow kind of burning anyway.

    They won't, simply because, right now, the leadership of the Tory party and the country are the ultimate in poisoned chalices.

    the general election really transformed Labour's fortunes. Their confidence is way up - and they will go all out

    “Personal abuse and calling for physical abuse is completely unacceptable and we need to be able to differentiate between the two"

    by repeatedly conflating them.

    More like they can't win because a) they're not very good at it and b) their arguments are ridiculously easy to demolish. Vitriolic abuse as a description however plays better as it paints them as victims, that's not to say they are getting none at all though.

    I think partly it's just the same narrative the Labour right and the media are trying to create around Corbyn. As well as that though I think it reflects how far they are from the consequences of their own politics. It's OK to take people's livelihoods or force them to use food banks but god forbid anyone calls you a rude name as a result.

    I genuinely don’t think they get social media. Having a look through tess d’mayhems FB page is Seemingly unmanaged judging by the shite posted . These useless wankers cannot even get their propaganda approach right.

    Tories take threats seriously and they freak out, but if they could just understand that all anyone really wants is for them to fuck off and stop trying to promote their stupid, antisocial ideas, then maybe they'd just do that and stop complaining that nobody wants to listen to them any more.
