One Cabinet minister told The Sun: “We have to offer them a way back, as we must remain a broad church”. That was from discussion of Conservative members of Parliament expelled this week for voting to prevent Britain leaving the EU without an agreement. The references is to accepting "high and low Church" religious approaches in the Anglican Church.

I more direct example is the flying of the Confederate flag to oppose integration etc. approximately 1954-1980.

Thought this might be an interesting topic, but I don't want to get into political discussions.
