    A political interest? An interest in reviving his ideology, and putting it into practise?

    Considering he attended a far-right rally, and murdered someone, I'm not entirely sure that's appropriate.

    Historical.

    Don't try pulling that one. I've already paid my respects to the dead of that day, in a reply to you. I don't recall you doing likewise.

    Examples of nonviolent direct action (also known as nonviolence, nonviolent resistance, or civil resistance) can include sit-ins, strikes, workplace occupations, blockades, or hacktivism, while violent direct action may include political violence or assaults.

    Having taught A level History and G&P, I can safely say that a political and historical perspective are not the same thing -although there are overlaps.

    Anyone interested in reviving & practising the ideology of a historical figure because it belonged to that historical figure is motivated by historical interest, therefore anyone interested in reviving & practising the ideology of Adolf Hitler because it belonged to Adolf Hitler is motivated by historical interest.

    Sounds like nit-picking to me. Reviving Nazism because it was based on "scientific racism" is motivated by political interest, rather than historical. Racists and white supremacists admire Hitler because he believed, like them, in the threat to racial purity offered by "Untermenschen".

    Nazism is a historical phenomenon from the 20th Century. Adolf Hitler is a historical figure from the 20th Century. These things are facts, not nits.

    There are no such things as "Untermenschen", "scientific racism" or "racial purity". These things are not facts.

    Sad times when screaming at children is a form of protest.

    These people are adults yes?

    I did like the way (shown on other videos but not the one above) that after Ian Bone had ranted away on how badly the childrens' nanny was paid, Nanny Crook appeared on the doorstep and said she was perfectly happy and had a very nice flat in the basement of the Rees-Mogg household.

    Disgraceful to behave like that to children, but great to see the stupid old fool stab himself in the foot.

    I thought the policeman look rather non-plussed. A sort of "they didn't teach us this at police academy" sort of expression. o_O

    Indeed.
    Reninds me a little of when the young girls of Holy Cross Primary School in Belfast had to run the gauntlet of abuse and violence by so-called adults during the Troubles - day after day after day.

    Appalling behaviour by all the protagonists in both situations.

    Utterly disgusting thing to do.

    Why didn’t someone take the children in immediately when the guy started being abusive?

    While I agree with your first statement, I have a feeling that the Moggettes have been brought up to understand fully what being in public life can entail, and their parents have no desire to hide them from the reality of it.

    Doesn't excuse the behaviour of the witless Ian Bone, of course - but it was Bone who has come off worse from his own stupidity.
