As the #BrexitParty meets in #Fylde this afternoon with #NigelFarage #AnnWiddecombe, #ClaireFox and others, here's a thread on "The Brexit Party, the RCP and the Brighton bombing". 1/8
Ms Fox was a member of the RCP when the IRA planted a bomb at the Grand Hotel Brighton in 1984 where the Tory Party conference was taking place. 2/8
The RCP view on the bombing was "We support unconditionally the right of the Irish people to carry out their struggle for national liberation in whatever way they choose". 3/8
Among the dead was Oldham-born Eric Taylor OBE (photo) who was a councillor and alderman on Oldham Council from 1961 to 1974 and a magistrate from 1966. He was also chairman of North West England Conservatives. 4/8
Ann Widdecombe was also at the conference. A close friend of hers died there - Lady Jeanne Shattock (photo). The others who died were Sir Anthony Berry MP, Lady Muriel Maclean and Roberta Wakeham. There were many serious injuries. 5/8
I have no idea if Claire Fox has the same views on the Brighton bombing as she did as a member of the RCP. Perhaps this tweet from Colin Parry gives us a clue. 6/8
The question is - why on earth is Claire Fox still on the Brexit Party list for NW England? Is Ann Widdecombe fully aware of her views then and, much more importantly, her views now on the Warrington outrage? The people of Warrington certainly are. 7/8
I have published a post on this subject with more details and links. 8/8 medium.com/@JRogan3000/th…
