The only issue is that the mob around Soubry clearly have no idea what a Nazi is. Be a protester by all means, but research your vocab beforehand.
Try not to be covered with Swastika tatooes, keeping your right hand raised, as you shout 'nazi and on the side of Hitler' it is a bit of a give away

Show me where Soubry was was physically barred from entering Parliament?

I can show you Jacob Rees Mogg being physically prevented from giving a speech though.

He just didn't go and cry about it all over the news and Twitter though.
Mr Rees Mogg said they were "entitled to protest". Why you bringing up a non-event?

Why bring it up? Because we were discussing confrontations with politicians become physical.

Odile in her wisdom seems to think that the actions of a few conspiracy theory nutters outside parliament are representative of the entire Brexit movement. This is clearly nonsense.

Yeah, we wouldn't want to take the extreme actions of a small minority of people and tar everyone with the same beliefs with the same brush now, would we?

That would be pretty dumb, right?

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The UK news is milking this.

Anna Soubry has clear comments on the episode and is not hysterical at all.

As Loz says though, Farage / UKIP have had this for years, and no-one seemed too concerned at the time.

If it's not the Brexit nutters from one side, it's the Brexit nutters from the other.

The GB flag has already left the others on the main roundabout at our local French town- and I bought a laminated teaching aid of EU countries on the MWay in France the other day - and the UK is no longer shown ... at least they are planning ahead

Farage has repeatedly moaned about this over the years, and has his own security detail.

Knowing the background of Kay Burley very well, seeing as she was raised a mile from me, and within a hundred yards of my school, I'm amazed that she hasn't kicked off her heels and clobbered someone yet. It must be taking an immense amount of restraint on her part.

And Anna Soubry wonders why people shout abuse at her in the street? Anyhow, this doesn't really change anything and the only real way to stop a no deal Brexit will be to bring down the government with a no confidence vote.
