It is a well known fact that following the Brexit vote membership of far right organistaions increased. The BNP don't need to contest a seat to exist. American influence in the Brexit vote ( sorry should have made clear not financial) was well documented in the Guardian newspaper. Also since the campaign and vote memebrship and activity by a whole range of extreme right wing groups has increased. One consequence of the pro-brexit vote has been to give a sheen of legitimacy to the idealogies of these groups and the extreme approach to immigration proposed will add further to that sheen. Of course that was not the intended outcome of the vote and nor do I suggest that those who voted for it thought it would be but nevertheless it is one of the consequences.

There is a report on the great replacement here.

https://www.inquisitr.com/5177508/according-to-a-new-study-supporters-of-trump-and-brexit-are-more-likely-to-fall-victim-to-conspiracy-theories/

Please  note this is a report about  and not the original findings which I know back this up.

 

Of course this may sound like a joke to you but I assure you it is not. Great Replacement theory may sound farcical but it features all four of the basic features of violence inciting ideology. It was also one of the inspirations behind the man who shot down all those people in Christchurch.

There is a pan-European expansion of ultra right wing organisations. The EU and its openess and freedom of movement acts as a buffer to many of the extemists ideas. People also need to understand that extemism is not confined to continent, it links across the world. Social media helps the spread of thoughts and actions. Leaving the EU will not help us to combat this and with it some very dangerous people.

Not a single piece of evidence.

The Conservatives are pledging to invest £550m in grassroots football as part of plans to back a UK and Ireland bid to host the 2030 World Cup if they form the next government.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the investment would "transform lives with a legacy to match the 2012 Olympics".

It would boost existing plans for amateur football in England.

But Labour said the funding would not make up for "years of brutal cuts" to sporting facilities.

The Football Foundation partnership between government, the Football Association (FA) and the Premier League has existed since 2000. It is promising to improve 20,000 grass pitches in England or build new Astroturf versions.

The new Tory pledge would see the government's current grassroots football funding commitment to the project rise from £180m to £730m over the next 10 years.

Sadly not sure it really did in the end except for some nice flats in London and of course giving a brand new stadium to a club almost completely free of charge.
