Guy tried to kill an immigration lawyer days after Patel's rant against "activist lawyers".

She was aware of the case before she doubled down on such rhetoric in her conference speech and subsequent appearances.

I know that like a box of Celebrations made entirely of goose gooseberry fool it's tough to choose which of these strawberry floaters to despise the most but Patel is a strawberry floating cartoon villain at this point, just a genuinely abhorrent person.

I feel like we get one of these every few days and there is just no real reaction whatsoever.

if you wanted any more ammo that the bbc is conservative-leaning if not in the pocket, see the above not getting any real traction on BBC news. they should be DESTROYING the government over this, but nothing as far as i can tell.

What does "cyber" even mean?

It's like an awful Dr Who villain plan.
