The main takeaway here is that Twitter is still a cesspool of extremists.

I see what you mean about the comments but TBH politics on Twitter is a cesspit of this after every political post. Political Twitter is rife with identity politics in every comment section.

I was just surprised at the overwhelmingly negative reaction to this. You even have other supporters getting dismayed.

Yeah, the tweet itself is fine but i don't think anyone expected the backlash especially on this scale. And it's on the Tories' own account

I got shown this and was actually surprised reading the comments. It's a simple tweet so where is the backlash coming from? :confused:

It really does feel like people are getting offended with everything

Honestly there are people who literally sit on Twitter & follow people ready to spread there propaganda every post.

I would actually be surprised is the tories or Boris or a pro-leave thinktank didn’t get flooded with spam propaganda.

It’s painful how bad it’s gotten.

Seems like Boris has underestimated his fanbase. Hopefully, these people don't speak for tories or else, Boris might need to pick a side again.

I don't think people would be surprised. I'm more interested at how skin colour has suddenly become a thing again on the right side. What happened to 'i don't see race'

All of Twitter, political or not, is a cesspit.

Tory voters: "I don't see colour at all." "Britain is the least racist country."
Also tories: "BAME ARE TAKING OVER."
