Oh and also it turns out that Nigel Farage has been campaigning for Leave with the EDL (they're violent far-right fascists for those who don't know them)!

Is it just me or is British politics starting to feel dark and scary?

It's no great surprise really. NF is not in the official leave campaign and campaigning is suspended.

The poster was unveiled to the media Thursday morning ... before Jo Cox was killed and campaigning was suspended?

And Farage has reportedly been offered a job in the government if Leave win

For anyone unfamiliar, Hopenothate.org.uk is one of the 3 charities that are part of Jo Cox's donation fund.

They are a charity that works to provide a positive antidote to hatred in politics. I'd strongly recommend anyone check their website out...in general; for the Farage article, and for the article about Jo Cox's life, beliefs and what she working so hard to change.

It only takes a minute or so to read so I really hope as many people as possible can find the time to do that. Thank you very much.
