Even Conservatives are worried their party is sliding into extremism

Baroness Warsi: She’s been a voice in the Tory wilderness for years.

Former Tory bigwigs have noticed the party is slipping into fascism, it seems.

Former party co-chair Sayeeda Warsi has said the party’s rhetoric on asylum seekers is dangerous. One has to wonder whether she’s okay with the way her colleagues talk about peaceful protesters.

Here she is:

Baroness Sayeeda Warsi told the FT that some of the “generalisations” that Conservative politicians had made were creating a “really dangerous space”.

Her remarks come after immigration minister Robert Jenrick said in a speech last month that refugee numbers needed to be controlled because those seeking asylum had “completely different lifestyles and values” from people in the UK.

He was supported by home secretary Suella Braverman, who added that asylum seekers showed “heightened levels of criminality”, including prostitution and drug dealing.

Earlier comments by Braverman about immigration prompted former footballer Gary Lineker to write on Twitter that the ministers’ language was “not dissimilar to that used in Germany in the 1930s”.

Warsi said Lineker was right about her party’s rhetoric and warned that it risked sliding into the same rightwing extremism as the Republican party in the US.

“There are only a few steps from there where then we end up demonising whole groups of communities,” Warsi said. “

You know, Gary Lineker was right when he said this is rhetoric from 1930s Germany.”

So if you know anybody who’s voting Tory on May 4, ask them why they support fascism and remind them that we fought a world war against it.

    Why do otherwise decent people , especially those who are less well off, still insist on voting tory? Are they victims of Stockholm syndrome?

    Tory party is now a fascist one and has been for more than five years! The latest draconian police and public Order act created and passed by the fascist tories proves my claim.

    Long live fascist little england wherein no one is safe from being criminalised and arrested by the fascist tories if we dare to speak out and challenge their hate filled lies! Peaceful protests now a myth and the rotten corrupt police forces continue to operate with impunity because they are the foot soldiers of the fascist tories!
