9. Sullivan has a dodgy record

He supported Thatcher for years and years, and also supported the Iraq war for quite a while.

He's improved a bit but the fact that he could at any time give Paul the time of day is worrying.

Also, I think that people sometimes give the extreme economic right a pass, when they rightly wouldn't give it to warmongers or racists. The extreme economic right kill, through poverty, hunger and the denial of healthcare, just as surely as the warmonger or the terrorist. The extreme economic right generally create a climate that crushes minority groups just as surely as the explicit racist does.
