NO MP should feel threatened. We should all agree on that. All sides need to dial down the vitriol.
But the orchestrated attempt to blame Boris Johnson for it is cynical hypocrisy on an epic scale.
No MP should feel threatened — but Remainers need to take responsibility for the vitriol too, not just Boris[/caption]
Remainer MPs casually call him “fascist”, “Nazi” or “dictator”. They scream “You should be in jail”, then faint with shock at his far more moderate language.
Labour call Tories “dirty”, “callous” or even “murderers”. Their IRA-backing shadow chancellor sniggers about lynching a female Tory.
The Left cheers as a rapper waves the severed head of a Boris effigy on stage. Then they clutch their pearls when the PM pushes back.
The Lib Dems scream “B***ocks to Brexit”— then demand everyone ELSE tones down their language.
Speaker Bercow is right. The Commons is “toxic”. But he is blind to his blatant Remain bias helping to create it.
Voters can see what this is: An organised assault to topple Boris and Brexit.
Many MPs are feigning offence for effect — and for their Twitter fans. A few are genuinely upset, but only because they have mistaken their bid to reverse or neuter Brexit for a noble cause.
It is not. Not after you have voted for a binding referendum, promised repeatedly to enact it and put the result in law.
Boris calls it a “betrayal” because it is.
He calls the rogue Act forcing him to beg another delay from the EU on their terms a “surrender” because it is.
No, Yvette Cooper, his words are not “designed to escalate division and hatred”. They accurately describe hugely powerful emotions, justifiably felt by millions of Leavers and brought on by those politicians blocking Brexit.

In 2016 these Remainers could have accepted defeat, as others did. Instead they sided with a minority who refused, who chose to denigrate Leavers as thick racists, who willed them on to die, who promoted baseless conspiracies to delegitimise the vote.
And who would now pour petrol on this fire they have started by forcing on our riven nation a second referendum openly rigged for Remain.
That’s why Leavers feel betrayed.
That’s what lies behind their rage.
What excuse do Remainers have for theirs? That they lost? That one man still stands inconveniently between them and their destruction of a historic democratic mandate? That’s shameful.
We deplore all the hatred and any targeting of MPs. We feel for their families.
But how about some self-awareness and contrition from Remainer MPs, especially the malicious extremists of the hard-Left, about their own starring role in causing it?

IT is terrifying to see vaccination rates for dangerous childhood diseases dropping.
Parents face being fined for refusing to vaccinate their kids[/caption]
Some of it is parental idleness. Some is the spread of long-debunked internet scare stories.
All families MUST be made to get kids their jabs before rates fall so low these illnesses can take hold.
If that needs fines or exclusions, so be it.
