Get a sense of perspective. People in the UK aren’t being assassinated or disappeared in the night for having the ‘wrong’ sort of politics. In the 80’s it was fairly common to see skinheads with Nazi tattoos, not anymore, they’d be laughed off the streets. As a country we’re still broadly progressive, The Equalities Act only became law in 2015; the antithesis of fascistic legislation.

I can see some parallels with the 30’s, the increasingly polarised politics and falls in living standard after long periods of growth but people should really read some history before concluding that we’re living in some sort of fascist state.
