In stark contrast to the Conservative party’s recent ‘respect pledge‘, a pro-Tory Facebook page with almost 50,000 followers has been exposed ‘joking’ that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un using nuclear weapons to destroy the Labour Conference would be a way to finally put ‘nukes to good use’.

The ardently pro-Conservative Facebook page Reem Memes With A Great British Theme posted the supposedly satirical meme yesterday – a post which completely flies in the face of the the Conservative Party’s recent claims that ‘abusive and vitriolic‘ online attacks are supposedly only carried out by left-wingers.

The post features a mock poll, supposedly created by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in which he asks his followers:

“Lmao got my first intercontinental ballistic missile working, where should i send my first nuke”

The mock poll showed that 68% of respondents voted for “Labour party conference“.

The pro-Tory Facebook page had also captioned their supposedly satirical post “How to finally put nukes to good use“.

The post almost certainly contravenes anti-terrorism legalisation banning the sharing of material that promotes or encourages terrorist acts.

Despite the post clearly inciting violence, and potentially being in breach of anti-terrorism legislation, Facebook have refused to remove it claiming that it does not breach their community standards guidelines.

The pro-Tory Facebook page Reem Memes with a Great British Theme is run by Nottingham-based Cameron Lievesey – who also happens to ‘like’ the Young Conservatives Facebook page, and is also a member of a ‘flat earth‘ Facebook group.

Lievesey also happens to be the son of wealthy retired businessman Adam Lievesey, a Managing Director of multi-million pound company Premier Cable Installations.

In other posts, the pro-Tory Facebook page have proudly labelled themselves and their followers as “right-wing extremists“, whilst another mocked ‘retards’.

Lievesey also runs another pro-Tory page – Conservative Cavalier – with Timothy Chattell who was previously been given air time on the BBC’s Daily Politics show to promote pro-Tory merchandise that was reportedly sold at the Conservative conference in Manchester last lear.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
