Frequently used by Tommy Robinson supporters amongst others.

If they're silent how do you know they're in a majority ?

We don't...we have to assume we are. At present, Liberalism has the upper hand, and anyone who disagrees is quickly ridiculed.
We're just biding our time until the softie do-gooders realise the error of their ways, and hope we can rescue this country of ours before it's completely destroyed.

At present i feel that the peddlars of fear, hate and prejudice has the upper hand and the country needs rescuing from them and those that support it if anything.

Would be happy to help you in your dilemma. Would take a little action on your part but you could always take our diaper sniper off our hands. We don't quite know what to do with him.

We won't ! And there are more of us, young people, coming up to swell our ranks. Sooner be a do-gooder Liberal than an isolationist xenophobic little Englander living in a bubble of past glory.

What on earth does not knowing about something have to do with making a definitive comment on it?

If you say someething often enough in words that the common man understands and get enough media attention, whatever you say becomes the truth. Farage has this down to a tee and many politicians fall at the first hurdle by not being able to communicate with the common man.

No, just waiting for the inevitable. Remember all those oddballs who warned about 'global warning'...they were ridiculed for their concerns. Now we're already seeing the consequences of over-population, which was also warned about. How long before people come to their senses and realise what is happening?
