Be careful how you vote everyone. If you chose the 'wrong' party you might upset Barbara Roche and apparently that would make you a "Euracist".
George Orwell must be spinning in his grave.
Is this how low our proud nation has sunk? You can't have an opinion unless it is EU approved. But you can get arrested and face two years in prison for quoting Winston Churchill as Paul Weston of Liberty GB has found to his cost.
We really do need to stand up the EU fanatics that brook no criticism.

Barbara Roache was on 'Newsnight' last night, Paxmans face told a story. First confusion as he tried to follow the convoluted thinking, then when realising it made no sense at all it changed to the grin followed be a stifled laugh out loud moment.
She failed to challenge the policy all the time merely emitting bully words every time she opened her mouth. Watch out though because people like her will seek to criminalise criticism of the EU under 'hate' crime laws.
