    I had to check that I was awake. What on earth are these mo rons doing, protesting about the election result? Do they think they can change it? Don't they believe in respecting the results of free elections? Are they anarchists, trots, stalinists or simply the unacceptable face of the British fascist left?

    Of they cannot accept the result of a democratic vote then perhaps their names should be removed from the Electoral Roll.

    They fail to see it for what it is - a Labour failure rather than a Conservative victory.

    Democracy seems less popular in some quarters than one might wish...

    Probably best you didn't address the comment in question.

    What are you on about? There was no question only a statement "Oh it has started then".

    In response to:
    Suggesting that people's right to vote be removed?

    Protest is still allowed in the UK, as Hong Kong etc.

    Your comment is fascistic, yes. Denying someone their democratic and legal right to vote is indeed a characteristic of fascism.

    With respect,
    With respect, Nomad, I think you are wasting your time. From what I've read over the past few months, he hasn't much of an idea what most political terms mean, and seems to be clueless as to the main philosophical points of the various ideologies.
    Just as when you stub your toe you are likely to shout "Ow!", when some people see a point of view they disagree with, they shout "Fascist". It's all knee jerk and nonsense.
