Tory MPs and their families received death threats and had their offices vandalised last time Labour triggered a free school meals vote.
This is what happens when you foment culture wars and practise increasingly polarised "us and them" politics.


It wasn't Labour "triggering" a vote that made the stupid among us feel aggrieved enough to go out and do stupid things, but the Tories admitting they might actually be beneath any human consideration by voting to let poorer kids starve.

Folks on the Twitter are suggesting that this could be his Back to Basics moment - suddenly, any Tory's words will become fair game, and any suggestion of nastiness or bullying will be seized upon.

Of course, that depends on a) unacceptable language being defined, and b) this being enforced in any way at all. This is just saying "We don't like bullying, we say you're bullying, ergo you're bad and we're right". Fucking schoolkid wank the lot of it.

The Corbyn club are already hard at work though. Jess Phillips pointed out the fucking daftness of this, and several wankers reminded anyone who was paying attention that Jess once said something about someone who's above criticism.

As a sign of him taking this seriously he'd need to jettison Patel immediately.

It's just more of his high-pitched squawking at people having the temerity to challenge his assured brilliance.

Oh yes, absolutely. Labour engage in vicious personal attacks delivered by their army of online Twitter trolls. Tories take part in robust debate backed up by the heartfelt support of their grassroots supporters.

And let's not forget Johnson was asked to tone down his pugnacious language around Brexit because of genuine fears he'd cause assassination like Jo Cox's.

Quite. But the fact that the Mail is now willing to run a front page story criticising Johnson's leadership - rather than just bleat that he got Brexit done - is something that I wasn't expecting.
