Karikatur aus dem Jahre 2012, neu betextet 2016.
The proper victim timely killed / has done well the political situation again.
Unwanted high approval ratings in the British electorate for a withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Proposed referendum on United Kingdom membership of the European Union -- Brexit). What next? One arranges a spectacular murder of a prominent person (Jo Cox), which claims to remain in the EU -- or anyway exploits her killing shamelessly for political purposes -- and spreads the word eagerly her killer was a fanatical Brexit-supporter, filled with hatred, and stands in connection with neo-nazi organizations. Notoriously lying, fact-distorting and deliberately omitting media which are obedient to EU-policies consequently drum this message into the voting masses: each Brexit supporter stands morally on a par with murderers. Soon everything is done and dusted and demoscopic values are back to the way they should be. Democracy is a bloody business. "Thank you, Mr. President of the Commission... I see that our assassin-zombie was successful !"
