Share This

Conservative British MP Jacob Rees-Mogg has defended his tweet of a speech made by the co-leader of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.
The prominent Brexit supporter posted the footage of Alice Weidel speaking in Germany's parliament.
In it, she questioned the European Union's (EU) Brexit negotiating strategy and called for EU reform.
AfD was formed in 2013 and is Germany's main opposition party, campaigning for tougher immigration laws.
The party has provoked outrage in Germany for incendiary remarks from its members on race, religion, and Nazi Germany.

The party has provoked outrage in Germany for incendiary remarks from its members on race, religion, and Nazi Germany.
In the speech, Ms Weidel said former British Prime Minister David Cameron's attempt to renegotiate UK membership of the EU was "a great opportunity to reform the EU into a leaner organisation" and attacked the EU's Brexit negotiating strategy.
"There is a lack of self-reflection on the continent, in Brussels, in Berlin, above all in Paris," she said.
Mr Rees-Mogg's tweet drew immediate condemnation online.
Opposition Labour MP for Tottenham David Lammy said Mr Rees-Mogg was "promoting Germany's overtly racist party, AfD".
"Our country's proudest moment was defeating the far right," he wrote. "Now we are supposed to sit back while xenophobes, nativists, nationalists & isolationists do their best to tear Europe apart again."
