The ferocious twitter campaign against Sadiq Khan continues apace. I see there's another account "LondonStreets" which basically churns out murder statistics and occasional fake news. Depressing number of followers.
I've seen this spread recently to what appear to be right wing trolls attacking the police in general. Regional police stories tend to get numerous responses along the lines of "Too soft on criminals", "They should be investigating crimes instead of appearing at Pride" and pointing out knife crime as well as an insinuation that lack of gun ownership is a cause of all this.
I used to dismiss it all as Russian based. Is it still the case, or are these actually coming from the US now? Account biogs usually have a union jack, an automatic rifle, the words "veteran" are usually in there, and a variation of the phrase "tired of getting the blame for terrorism". Are these NRA lobbyists?
Twitter really disturbs me.
