After figures showed a rise of hate crime since the Brexit result, Nigel Farage revealed he too has been the victim of abuse and intolerance.
Speaking on his LBC show, Nigel recalled how on one occasion he was forced out of a pub by “aggressive” Remainers.
“I had to be hustled out of there very, very quickly, so threatening and aggressive were people who’d been on the Remain side,” he said.
But this wasn’t just an isolated incident, Nigel said since the Brexit vote he has even been on the receiving end of death threats.
“What I saw was a most extraordinary level of intolerance, aggression, abuse, threats and that's just walking down the street,” he continued.
“Let alone the death threats and goodness knows what else.”
