I never said people can't say that, just don't complain about poor Anna Soubry and Owen Jones like it's something new when it's been going on for a long time.
Actually, it is veering onto something new. Targeting and following politicians with the express reason to intimidate and abuse, to the extent where even female journalists need a security detail is not normal.

Politicians on public engagements being jeered at is not new (Farage in Edinburgh, for example), is an accepted part of politics and has been for generations.

Don't care what side of the political fence it happens on. If you are afraid to walk about by yourself because you might be set upon by a mob, and people think it's the new normal, society needs to have a long hard look at itself.
