James O’Brien of LBC (the guy who nailed Nigel Farage) on the murder of Jo Cox perfectly captures the state of debate in Britain today
The LBC presenter James O’Brien gave a monologue on his radio show this morning, perfectly capturing the sentiments of many across the nation.
If I was to be reading my newspaper every single morning and being told my very existence was under seige, by people I’ve never met and never seen but keep getting told are coming here in their hordes.
If I was to open my newspaper or turn on my radio or telivision set, and told that every body who is coming here is a rapist and they’ve got their eyes on our women and we’ve got no chance whatsoever of protecting ourselves, and unless we do this or do that, or treat them like this or treat them like that, then we’re all doomed, we are all going to hell in a handcart.
If I was told it’s time to reclaim our country every time I got out of bed in the morning, I would begin to believe it I think… if I didn’t have the knowledge or the insights and the education to know that it is not true.
We want our country back from whom?
We want our country back from when?
We want our country back, how?
….Convince me if you can, that political debate in Britain in the last couple of years has NOT created an environment in which we find it easy to believe… or possible to believe, that this sort of violence, that this sort of terrorism, could unfold on our streets.
