In scenes reminiscent of the worst of the Thatcher years, a young man has been wrestled, lifted and carried bodily away for shouting something to Theresa May. As you can see from the footage below, he was not near the Prime Minister, nor making any attempt to get close enough to do any harm – and yet he is forced away from the scene even after May has long since entered a building and, for protesting at the actions of police, he is wrestled violently to the ground after a female police officer is heard saying ‘Let’s just put him down, come on’.
A male officer uses his body weight to buckle the young man – Connor’s – legs to bring him to the ground and then several officers lift him bodily and cart him off:
This just happened. Everyone. Please stop for a moment to watch this. Then share. pic.twitter.com/xj2hCU2AF0 #ImWithConnor #ToriesOut

As he’s manhandled away from the scene – for doing nothing worse than raising his voice – Connor can be heard protesting ‘This is a fascist state’.
When Theresa May is running scared of both Jeremy Corbyn and the public and a young man is treated this way by police for simply calling out to her in a public place, it’s hard to disagree.
It’s more than ever essential to remove May and the Tories on 8 June so that the slide of this country into fascism and ‘1984’-style state control can be reversed.
