Don’t worry only 52% of Britain Supports Racists

While some Brexit supporters are probably not racist, who knows perhaps even the majority? It is clear that the UK is heading for a new period where racism is acceptable. The Huffington Post for example reports more than 300 hate crimes were recorded last week this compares to an average of 63 in England. This compares to a rise of ZERO percent in Scotland which voted to remain. Those of us who left the UK in recent years will be well aware that hate of foreigners was the underlying message of UKIP and increasingly members of the Tory and Labour parties. However, instead of trying to diffuse this situation PM in waiting Theresa May made it her job to send these advertising billboards round the UK:

As Britain heads towards the abyss it is worth noting I was wrong on the referendum, I predicted leave would win by 51% to 49% not the amount Leave actually got which was 52%.
