Like the Angry Yorkshireman and the Beast, I also find the use of violent language and obscenity to describe a political opponent – let’s say I find it UNWORTHY. It’s beneath us, really. So I’d like to associate Vox Political with the opinions expressed here.
… With one caveat: My experience of debate with supporters of the Tory Party and the political right suggests that they have absolutely no reason to take the moral high ground. A right-winger on Facebook, having been out-argued in a debate, seems just as likely to resort to obscenity as anyone else, in my experience, and any protestations to the contrary by softer-voiced but more media-friendly exponents of their cause are not supported by the evidence.
