Fun Online Polls: Brexit Delaying Tactics; The Attack Near Finsbury Mosque

Posted on the 19 June 2017 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

The results to last week's Fun Online Poll were as follows:
The major political parties deliberately messed up the election so that they can sideline or delay Brexit.
Probably true - 51%
Probably not true - 49%

So pretty evenly split. I voted 'probably true', although I must caveat that, I'm not sure it was deliberately deliberateor whether there was just a blatant disregard bordering on negligence or even recklessnes; certainly on the part of Mrs T May who basically threw it away. I'm no fan of the Tories in any way shape or form, but this is one thing which they appeared better equipped to sort out.

This week's hot topic appears to be the attack near Finsbury Mosque.
If you ask me, this sort of thing was going to happen sooner or later, to paraphrase apologist Sadiq Khan circa 2016, this is just part and parcel of attending what is or was believed to be a radicalising mosque.
So that's this week's Fun Online Poll.
"Are you surprised that somebody finally snapped and attacked a group of Muslims near a mosque?"

If the usual suspects want to pile in and call me a racist for my casual disregard of the issues, feel free, but please note you are missing the point.
I am a modern, west European liberal who believes in equality between people of whatever color skin and wherever they are from (provided they are here legally); equality between men and women; equality between straight and gay/lesbian; freedom of religion and more importantly freedom to be atheist; respects democracy; likes a booze-up; and who opposes violence and corporal/capital punishment. I've a downer on any movement which takes the opposite view on such matters.
