20 December 2018, 14:22
Pro-Remain MP Anna Soubry was surrounded by pro-Brexit protesters who branded her a “traitor” and being on “the side of Hitler”.
Video of the incident has been condemned on social media which was filmed outside Parliament on Wednesday.
It shows two men wearing yellow high-visibility jackets jeering her as she was escorted by police.
One man shouted at her “you’re a disgrace to the people of the country”.
I know I'm going on about this, but I'm confused and disturbed at the fact this kind of behaviour continues to be tolerated.— Mike Stuchbery💀🍷 (@MikeStuchbery_) December 19, 2018
It's exactly the kind of menace and rhetoric that ended with the death of a sitting MP. pic.twitter.com/LlhB5BhVu2
While being confronted about her call for a so-called People’s Vote, the man added: “Traitors like you were told what the people felt”.
Another man yelled: “You’re on the side of Adolf Hitler!”
Following the event, Ms Soubry spoke out about the abuse of social media.
“Would like to thank the two police officers who were very kind and also had to put up with abuse,” she wrote.
