London a city of around 9 million, with 3 million daily commutters and 20 million foreign visitors had 132 homicides last year.

Compare this to US Cities, such as Baltimore with a population of 600,000 which had 342 murders, whilst Chicago a city of 2.7 million had 555 homicides last year, and the pattern is repeated in numerous other US Cities. If you add Chicago and Baltimores homicide rate together you have more murders in those two ncities than the entire UK and even if you add the 77 homicides in Ireland and include the entire British Isles with a population of over 70 million, it still has less murders tha Chicago and Baltimore wth a collective population of around 3.3 million. There are also plenty of other US Cities that are extremely violent.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offer some interesting figures and an interactive state by state map of homicides in the US.

FastStats - Homicide - CDC

Stats of the States - Homicide Mortality - CDC

As for history, I thinki you will find nations have been fighting for thousands of years, and it's not unique to any one country.
Amazing, just the Democrat controlled cities of Detroit, Chicago, and Baltimore alone, out number the entire UK for murders.

Try watching him speak in his videos. He is not an extremist, or danger to the public. He is brave, and has guts.

He speaks from the heart, and believes what he says. I, and millions of others in these islands, know what he has to say is the truth. The establishment don't like what he has to say, and are doing their best to silence him, in whatever manner that takes to do so.

They know we are watching this, like we are watching them try and thwart the will of the people with Brexit. They are our enemies, not Tommy Robinson. We know it, and what alarms them, is they know we are watching what happens to this man.

There's no doubt he has some important things to say on Muslim grooming gangs which go largely unreported by the MSM.
But I'm afraid he's a former soccer hooligan with a criminal record for violence who attracts some nasty,extreme right followers.
I hope he's not elected.

Bring your own ink pen, because they will give you an erasable pencil to vote, if you don't.

He's not even going to get anywhere close to being elected, no need for vote tampering.

We'll see on Sunday evening actually, results aren't announced until all EU countries have voted and most of them vote on Sundays.

He would need to get around 9-10% of votes in the Northwest England region to be elected, most opinion polls lump him in with 'others' that have about 2-3% between them, way behind the parties who will take the seats.

My prediction for the 8 seats in the Northwest England region

Brexit Party 3, Labour Party 2, then 1 each for Liberal Democrats, Conservative Party and Green Party.
