With another deadline to leave the EU missed, and a General Election that most of our politicians were too frit to hold, the Croydon Constitutionalists are marking November as Democracy Month.
To start the month a video of the great Peter Shore MP on how politicians use fear to subvert democracy.
“So the message, the message that comes out is fear, fear, fear.
Fear because you won’t have any food.
Fear of unemployment.
Fear that we’ve somehow been so reduced as a country that we can no longer, as it were, totter about in the world independent as a nation.
And a constant attrition of our moral.
A constant attempt to tell us that what we have and what we had as not only our own achievements, but what generations of Englishman has helped us to achieve, is not worth a damn”
