    It is not my cup of tea either, but it's only right we keep an eye on them.

    True, Bruv. I lay the blame squarely on Westminster in general for the state we're in now, at home and abroad. If I was running this country, I'd have told America were to stick it's illegal war!

    I'd have also told Europe where to stick it' free-movement (Shengen)! As Einstein stated; "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction". Or, in the case of MASS immigration, BACKLASH! None of us were consulted on ANY of these major changes; how naive of governments to think " it'll be OK, the people will accept it". As is clearly demonstrated, there are rumblings of discontent.

    If these rumblings are ignored, an eruption could be next, I fear.

    When the circumstances start to repeat themselves, needless to say, the subsequent outcomes also begin to repeat themselves.

    Indeed. There's a Chinese curse which runs:" May you live in interesting times". If one is completely detached, these times are definitely interesting...

    A house divided against itself cannot stand. There is trouble ahead for Germany, methinks.And possibly for us, at some stage, alas. If there is another krystallnacht, my guess is that Muslims will be the target this time.

    These radicals gain ground because "reasonable people" think that their supporters a just a few nutcases, and the don't take voting seriously. The problem is that these nutcases will come out in droves to support their favorite wingnut, and if you stay home on election day, the wingnuts win.
    The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the goverment.

    I agree partly with you, but the rise of the nutters is a reaction to events. They frame their arguments carefully to gain mass appeal, seducing the electorate with simplistic answers to their insecurities, then they gain momentum as their ideas become accepted as the The Answer.
