Anti-Brexit British MP called ‘Nazi’ by protesters outside parliament

LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (JANUARY 7, 2018) (BBC) – 

British Conservative lawmaker Anna Soubry was verbally abused during a television interview outside Westminster on Monday (January 7), as pro-Brexit protesters taunted her with chants and accused her of being a “Nazi”.

The MP for Broxtowe was bombarded with insults as she was speaking to a BBC presenter. She was then followed to parliament after the interview by a group of demonstrators who called her “scum”.

Soubry voted to remain in the European Union during the 2016 referendum and is one of a group of politicians who are petitioning for a second national vote.

More than 50 MPs have written to London’s Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick following the incident, calling for an improvement in public security outside parliament.
