    Can I just say that this is Jack Davies’ thing, not mine. He got people to give stuff in, edited it all and it’s on his YouTube channel. I was happy to take part but I wasn’t even going to do a video message.

    To sum up, go Jack!

    Clearly the UK is not at this point but it is incumbent on politicians from all parties to separate the issue from the people. You don’t need to support unlimited immigration to recognize that describing desperate people as “swarms” lends legitimacy to the comments of abhorrent individuals such as Katie Hopkins.

    Good stuff guys, exactly the kind of thing that it’s good to see Liberal Youth doing.
