Bo-Jo a Social Darwinist?
Liz Webster, as a member of the Liberal-Democrats, has represented The Cotswalds as a Member of Parliament since 2017. She represents Gloucestershire, in the southwest of England, a stunningly bucolic, mostly rural and farming area.
Webster is a hardline Remainer and visceral critic of Boris Johnson and the Conservative Tories.
[Brexit has eroded] the rule of law and threatening the economy, public services and civil liberties. We must amplify our message that the Liberal Democrats want to stop Brexit by demanding a final say on the Brexit deal.
An exit from Brexit will boost growth, wages, business investments and tax revenues. We are also the only Party which will bring fairness and opportunity to all, building a tolerant and open Britain in which everyone is able to fulfill their potential.
Final results are in. MP Webster got beaten severely in the recent election.
From GloucestshireLive.co.uk, Dec. 13:
Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown (Con): 35,484
Liz Webster (LD): 15,270
Alan MacKenzie (Lab): 7,110
Sabrina Poole (Green): 3,312
Now she is lashing out. In a Tweet, dated December 14, she blamed Social Darwinists for her defeat.
“This brand of nationalist, strong arm Tory who won power believe in survival of the fittest. They believe in services on a pay as you go basis because they don’t like the thought of paying to help someone else.”
She goes on to compare the Tories to far right activist Tommy Robinson.
“Many support eugenics. And fascists like Tommy Robinson back them.”
Robinson is actually a longtime supporter of UKIP.
It would appear that MP Webster lifted her remarks from a far left-wing UK blog Scramnews, that published an article on Tommy Robinson, Dec. 10,
Tommy Robinson urges supporters to have children in bizarre ‘great replacement’ conspiracy rant
Far-right cult leader Tommy Robinson has urged his supporters to have children in an inane rant about white people being replaced by ethnic minorities…
The great replacement theory is a conspiracy that Muslims are going to “takeover” Britain by outnumbering the white British population…
The theory is shared among the far-right, but some Brexit Party candidates are also linked to it, including Dionne Cocozza, who shared posts about a “Muslim takeover” of Britain…
This pro-eugenics type rant has no place in British conversation. Robinson should stay offline and get back to one of his many court cases.
Cocozza was a place-holder candidate in Scottland for the Brexit Party in a far left-wing district of Glasgow, Scotland.
From the neweuropean, Nov. 21, before the election,
Brexit Party stands by candidate who shared warnings of Muslim ‘takeover’
Cocozza has regularly shared materials from far-right sites such as Voice of Europe, YouTuber Paul Joseph Watson…
In one screenshot purportedly from Cocozza’s account, she retweeted a Twitter user who said: “Sorry but I heard a Muslim say, we get elected then slowly we takeover. Happened in Belgium, Sweden and Germany.”
The watchdog also says Cocozza shared a Voice of Europe tweet in October 2018 stating: “Germany will become African and Islamic if mass migration isn’t stopped.”
