David Davies was giving an interview about abuse against MPs.
A Conservative Brexiteer has been accused of being a liar and a traitor by a Brexit-supporting member of the public as he gave a television interview.
MP for Monmouth David Davies was speaking to BBC Wales about a rise in abuse against MPs when he was confronted by the woman.
In the footage, the woman calls him a “traitor” when he tells her he is pro-Brexit but voted for Theresa May’s deal.
Well done to @DavidTCDavies on dealing with this.— Alun Davies 🏴 (@AlunDaviesAM) May 21, 2019
But we also need a conversation about how we can disagree with each other, have a serious debate and rebuild our politics. In Wales and the UK. https://t.co/JYbek4HsM1
“You are a liar. You did not vote to leave,” she says.
“Shame on you. You’re a traitor,” she adds.
“You should feel uncomfortable. You’ve betrayed 17.4 million people.”
Speaking to the camera, Mr Davies, who has started wearing a body camera to and from Parliament in response to intimidation, says: “And that’s what you put up with when you’re out here all the time.”
Welsh Assembly member Alun Davies re-tweeted the video clip and praised the politician for how he handled the incident.
“But we also need a conversation about how we can disagree with each other, have a serious debate and rebuild our politics. In Wales and the UK,” he added.
The Monmouth MP replied saying he “100%” agreed.
