Lack of concern by Amber Rudd on Far Left Groups

      Comments Off on Lack of concern by Amber Rudd on Far Left Groups

UKIP Northern IrelandIn his previous email to the home secretary regarding the far-left group known as “Antifa”, Keith Lonsdale UKIP Northern Ireland reminded that the definition of “terrorism” is contained in Section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2000. Suggesting Amber Rudd  must surely be fully conversant with that definition.

Today we see a number of prominent news outlets reporting that another far-left, anti-Brexit extremist group, “the Real 48%”, has embarked upon a campaign of issuing death threats and other intimidation to people who they see as prominent members of the pro-Brexit camp and a number of Brexit campaign donors. These stories appear to be credible.

When can we expect a statement from the Home Secretary in regard to the increasingly violent and extreme nature of the anti-Brexit far-left?

Amber Rudd has spoken a number of times on the supposed threat from the far right, which many would say is in reality all but non-existent in the UK but, despite the fact that proven instances of violence, intimidation and criminal damage by far-left groups are far more numerous and frequent, you have barely given them a mention.

Threatening to kill people with the intention of changing the direction of British politics is, I believe, a terrorist act.

When can we expect to see the Home Secretary take decisive action against these groups?

To Amber Rudd I ask the question again, is your lack of mention, let alone action, indicative that the activities of these far-left, anarchic groups suit your own political objectives i.e to thwart our exit from the EU?
