Britain's "nasty party" condemns its MPs' nastiness

As the Brexit deadline draws nearer and the UK Conservative Party continues to fracture over the catastrophic failure to achieve any kind of deal with the EU, Tory Members of Parliament have begun to shower abuse on Prime Minister Theresa May, warning her that she faces a fate similar to Jo Cox, the Labour MP who was assassinated by a racist Brexit supporter before the referendum, and warning May to "bring her own noose" to Cabinet meetings.

The Conservatives' age-old epithet is "The Nasty Party, so-called for its delight in the cruel treatment of poor people and its celebration of hereditary elites as genetically superior to the poor people whose homes, businesses and persons they kick over and stamp upon.

The nastiness of the nasty party should come as a surprise to no one: bullying one another is absolutely on-brand for the party of the n-word, incineration of poor people, and billions for far-right religious terrorists.

In an article in the Sunday Times, a Tory backbencher was quoted as saying: "The moment is coming when the knife gets heated, stuck in her front and twisted. She'll be dead soon."

The PM was also told to "bring her own noose" to a meeting later this week.

One MP asked: "Have they learned nothing following the assassination of Jo Cox?"

Labour MP Mrs Cox was murdered in her West Yorkshire constituency by right-wing extremist Thomas Mair, a week before the Brexit referendum in June 2016.

The prime minister's official spokesman said: "Personal vitriol has no place in our politics."
