Norwich North has apparently voted for "change". Well, in one sense it may have, unwittingly, and because of far-left bullying and misdescription. There will be more migrants and more of Muslim sharia, even though the people do not want this. None of this is Christian or likely to preserve the British way of life in their own country. I feel that we need to be honest with the electors and show them what more of the same kind of change will bring them. It strikes me that to bring this kind of change on a people in their own country is deeply racist. I cannot see any moral justification for it or any good coming from it.
