A window displaying a “stop Brexit” poster was smashed by a thug in an act of “physical retribution”.
The home of former Lib Dem councillor Jean Howes, and Liberal Democrat secretary Bob Howes, was targeted on Tuesday night at 10pm as a “curb-stone” was thrown through the window.Drunken yobs have been throwing bricks at people's windows since bricks (and windows) were invented.
Why does she think the poster had anything to do with it?
Jean said: “It is a sign of intolerance, and this is what happens when society begins to breakdown, people think they can act this way.
“We live in a democracy....Errr....yes. We do. We had a vote. A democratic one. Your poster wants to halt the result of that vote.
Here, love. Look up 'democracy' in this:
...and we have been expressing our opinion, we haven’t forced it on anyone, we simply have a poster up.
“It is upsetting, it is sad that people feel the need to do that in such an aggressive way.”If you were genuinely targeted due to the poster, you really only have yourself to blame.
