    No. You linked to a BBC page which repeated a rumour. No source was named there.

    The BBC website is not what it once was. Every week it seems there is a new article about homicidal menses.

    How unfortunate then that your dog ate Google.

    This person's mother did not even have a clear idea of where he was going on that day, despite being asked to cat-sit for him:

    What's this got to do with GBH?

    Sorry, I'm lost . .

    Yet Breitbart and Fox News are paragons on truth and balance!
    Funny you manage to find info when pushed. Found the other interviews, or did Breitbart not highlight those for you?

    Because George Soros is well known for backing a number of ''progressive'' groups across various nations.

    You had presented a fictional account of such activity which presented as sympathetic to your viewpoint. Vince was alluding to a real world example of such activity.

    I don't see what you hope to gain by holding forth on these two because the video of an actual incident was watermarked with the Breitbart logo. Are you somehow convinced that the mob who tried to deplatform JRM are in the pay of Breitbart?

    Oh, were you pushing me? Sorry, I'll pretend to be flustered next time if you give me notice but the video speaks against your enthusiastic claims. I'm not claiming this man is not a Nazi, I'm just pointing out that you haven't presented evidence that he is and the rest of the evidence suggests that he isn't. It's easy to find evidence that he's mentally ill, but it's obviously easier for some people to shout "Nazi".

    The masked group were a Bristol anti-fascist group who actually oppose Labour and momentum because they believe democracy doesn't go far enough in dealing with the hard and far right.

    So true and so ignored by so many in their haste to join the throng.

    So a man with far right views bought a ticket to an event and went along... and this is ''Moggy does keep some pretty dodgy company''?

    Far right guy gets into a fight with far left guy... and Mogg is heard calling for them to calm down.

    Not for much longer if he keeps behaving like that - the Labour Party has internal disciplinary processes for bringing the Party into disrepute and I suspect he may have over-stepped the mark.

    Sorry... not trying to be difficult but to me those two guys don't look alike... the one in the post I've linked to has a more chubby, child like, happier face.

    White shirt man has a harder look.

    White with white hair and in their 50s [ish]... about all they seem to have in common. Obviously if it turns out to be the guy then OK, but needs a bit more than a vaguely similar appearance.

    It's interesting. You can see the aggression of the man in the white shirt much more clearly in this video than the Breitbart one. I wonder why that might be?

    I never thought I'd be driven to defending the annoying left (or alt-left / antifa or whatever.) I always found the SWP and their kin extremely irritating. I remember them doing a similar thing when i went to see David Blunkett speak. All it achieved (apart from making them look like moronic bullies) was letting him off the hook as it meant that he didn't have to answer any difficult questions. It also made him look reasonable and statesmanlike. Quite the opposite from their intended effect, I'm sure. Nonetheless, I prefer them to the alt-right / neo Nazis for reasons given in previous posts. I honestly find it worrying that others don't.

    Why, isn't it obvious? They staged the whole thing. Them and the 12-foot alien blood-drinking reptilians from the fourth dimension. If you listen closely you can hear David Icke calling cues.

    Will they discipline Macdonald's comments in 2011 for wishing to challange any tory MP..or i suppose he has changed his opinion?
    'Mr McDonnell added: “I want to be in a situation where no Tory MP, no Tory or MP, no Coalition minister can travel anywhere in the country or show their face anywhere in public without being challenged by direct action.”

    In September 2011, he said: “Any institution or any individual that attacks our class, we will come for you with direct action.”'
