But it's alright for the biggest-selling newspaper in the country to call the judiciary Enemies of the People and for guests on mainstream TV channels to call for migrants to be drowned .
We are better than those people in your examples.
We have a little respect for humanity, and don't see people as mere statistics, or cannon fodder in some culture war.

I make a few exceptions for the passing of real monsters.
There was fine food, song and dance in the McCoy household on the day of Suharto's passing. *
But we knew full well that his leiutenants, sons and international handlers still had hands on the tiller.

It won't do any harm to take a couple of days off.
Let's face it, we've not banned Christmas despite 30 years of full priority effort.

Nicest bloke ever to grace Westminster, you say?
David Amess had been a rentaquote backbencher since the Thatcher era. He backed every reactionary cause going and was a familiar face on Eastern regional TV. He aimed to be a bruiser but his frequent clownish personal insults never punched above his bantamweight.

I didn't agree with him in any respect. I would consider him my opponent.

But not my enemy.

He seems to have accepted people who disagreed with him, and had normal relationships with them, as all of us do, I suspect..

He did nothing which caused him to deserve to die such an awful death, not his voting record or tendency to reflect Tory Taliban views.

If I might be so bold as to suggest, it behoves us to keep that at the front of our thoughts.
