An LBC listener has revealed he was attacked and threatened for campaigning for Vote Leave.
It comes after politicians promised a "kinder politics" following the killing of Labour MP Jo Cox last week.
He told LBC: "Yesterday, I was called racist all day. I was called a Nazi. My friend had his foot stamped on. It was scary.
"We had our stall kicked, punched, we had leaflets taken from the table, someone tried to knock the table over.
"The weird thing is, I'm half Caribbean and my friend is Jamaican. All these people over the course of the day, every single person who called us a racist or a Nazi - and there were many - were all white, middle-class people.
"Someone threatened to stab me - because I was handing out leaflets outside Brixton tube.
"One guy stood just a foot next to me and every time I went to hand out a leaflet, he said 'He's a racist'. It was bizarre."
