In hindsight, the language being used by these hard-left MPs was incredibly inflammatory:┬á“There is power in protest”, “It’s not the politicians the Government fears, it’s you. ­čĹŐ”,┬áZarah Sultana describing the movement as a “fight”. Claudia Webbe, who encouraged her followers to take to the streets over the bill, accused Donald Trump’s rhetoric during the DC riot of mobilising┬á“fascists to attack democracy”.┬áLast night she took to Twitter to back the rioters, excusing them because “the creeping authoritarianism of the state has repercussions”.
