Changes need to be made

Firstly, I would like to utterly condemn the brutal murder of Labour MP Joe Cox.

No innocent person deserves to die in such a senseless brutal act.

Sadly, such acts are becoming more and more prevalent in our country and, like it or not, it’s time that we started to take a closer look at why they are happening.

It’s time the Government admitted to the serious problems we have in this country and address them.

Pretending that there isn’t a problem and hoping it will sort itself out is no longer an option.

There have been warnings for years of blood shed and violence on our streets and successive governments have ignored them. Why?

Like it or not this latest atrocity is linked not only to the massive and untenable influx of immigration into the country but also the decline of our British culture and identity.

Ordinary British people have had enough of their views being ignored by the people they elected to power, people they believed would put them and Britain first.

They have lost all trust in politicians who they see as self-serving and money-grabbing, who put them and their careers above any sense of duty to the electorate.

No one wants to see senseless murders like this happening on our streets, yet the people who can make a difference sit back and watch it happen.

It’s time for people in charge to admit the scale of the problem and tackle it, only then will we make the changes that need to be made.

They owe us that much.
