Please vote reform, for as we hear on the news every day, the third world type migrants have introduced knife crime since bringing mugging to our country, along with gun and acid attacks, something that would have been very unlikely to have been taken up on the massive scale it now is, if our youth had not followed what so many of these newcomers and the offspring of earlier settlers here now have made ‘the norm’.

Sadly so many of these people and the offspring of earlier arrivals here are filling our prisons, that the Courts, unless inflicting life changing injuries or killing someone, are unlikely to imprison them for meaningful terms, so just a case of luck that death from blood loss never happened, but luck,ends..

I think you’ll probably find that indigenous people have been stabbing each other in this country for centuries; long before migrants came here. Voting Deform will make absolutely no difference.

Reform is the w’acist party, Labour will take us
back into Europe.
Better prospects for Britain.

Post Brexit more migrants have arrived on our shores.
Pre Brexit less migrants arrived.

Get real

Unfortunately our own people don’t just copy and follow the rap music, body piercings and foods which ethnic migration has blessed our country with.

The more unpleasant but less often mentioned traits are also far more prevalent now too, as we see.

I shall vote reform as we owe it to our fallen and naturally deceased soldiers to help keep our country for OUR people which is why most all went to wars in the past, to protect their loved ones from stabbing, looting, raping outsider invaders. Now other political parties seem to actively encourage such here.

Do your bit, vote Reform.

I doubt very much that other parties are promoting stabbing, looting and raping. I would say you’re deluded if you believe this or that voting Deform will make a positive difference.

Obviously instant imprisonment just for carrying a knife, yet alone using it.

I am guessing you’re the type that carries a knife and is ready to attack someone who looks a little bit old then, cough up this posters IP to the police Echo, he sounds like he will “copycat” this weak little criminal.
