We call them Kaviar Linke. But again - let's not argue about semantics.

Then there's not much else to argue about, is there?

Is there any left left in Europe? Except Spain, they are different.
UK has had a resurgence of left-wing activism in recent years.

The British political system is falling apart. What means the UK is democratic.

I can only make sense of the left's belief that the BBC is right wing in one way:

Left = "There is only one right opinion. And it is mine."

Right = "Everyone has their own opinion. I just disagree with yours."

That is the only way that for example I can reconcile the evidence of BBC Question Time having two thirds of panellists being Remainers, and thus upsetting right-wing Brexiteers, and them having any Leaver panellists, and thus upsetting left-wing Remainers. (I don't know what left-wing Brexiteers or right-wing Remainers think about this.)

There is a segment of the Right which expresses the disagreement by shooting the opponent.

Luckily for the UK, we don't have left-wing terrorism. It may change soon, though. IMHO, the heavy-handed response of police will rather accelerate than stop this.

I loved it when I was a child :-)
We've trained the reality becoming a farce for over 3 years. I guess it's time for a farce turning into reality.
