As an American, I see a great similarity with with things in my country. The police are first and foremost agents of the State, empowered to kill their own countrymen.

The conservatives have greatly weakened the power of unions, and are constantly warning about 'others' taking your job. The 'others' are always people of color, whether south of our border or across the seas to China.

Politicans that appeal to emotions are always more successful than politicans who try to present a reasoned position.

The fools who believed that Brexit would make the UK stronger are the same fools who elected DJT. I fear our countries are going down the drain together.
