...is growing in our country.
We have had a right wing terrorist assassinate a left wing MP on the streets and now, post the referendum, some racist scum are already targeting immigrants, Asian and blacks.
The son of a friend a friend of mine was out in Alderley Edge, Cheshire yesterday with a friend, who is black. They were approached and the black lad to was told to F*** off N*****, we're in charge now. Leaflets have been posted on cars in Huntingdon, saying "Leave the EU, No More Polish Vermin". Anecdotes of course but nonetheless seemingly repeated across the country.
In addition, we live in a post truth world, one where politicians feel able simply to lie, where the media treat the whole thing as a spectacle to be stoked rather than behaving as an organ which exists to hold people and institutions to account, where bias is entrenched. It is also a world where the word "expert" is a byword for leech (see as an e.g. Gove in the referendum campaign, where actually expert comment was largely stifled), so intellectual excellence is sneered at, in order that the lies are not exposed..
I really fear for our country now, we are not far away from 1930s Germany.
