Brexiteer MP loses it after being branded ‘TRAITOR’ and ‘SNOWFLAKE’ by Brexit campaigner
A raging Brexit campaigner approached Mr Davies on Tuesday and began recording him while he was attempting to do a BBC interview. The incident quickly escalated when Mr Davies said it was “unacceptable”. The onlooker fired back and said: “Why is he feeling intimated? You’ve got a bloody big camera there on him for God’s sake. What’s the difference with my phone? I was quiet and you guys just stopped talking. I was quiet. When I can here I was quiet. I was just going to listen to what he was saying but now I can tell he’s a Remoaner. He must be. Did you vote Remain? Are you an MP? Did you vote to Remain?”
You’re a liar. Shame on you. You’re a traitor
When the MP for Monmouth clarified he voted to Leave, the onlooker demanded to know why he was “acting like a snowflake”.
Mr Davies insisted he is not a snowflake but the Brexit campaigner hit back and said: “Well, you are because you’re intimidated by me.”
The Tory MP replied: “I’m not intimidated by you. You’ve just made a false allegation.”
When asked what the allegation was, Mr Davies said: “Well, I don’t know.”
He added: “So anyway, funnily enough I think this lady is actually on the Brexit side, which is my side of the argument. But basically it’s the same.
“I campaigned for Brexit. Where were you? Where were you people when I was out campaigning for Brexit? You were nowhere. You were behind your keyboards and now you’ve come out. You are not a Brexiteer.”
The Brexit campaigner said Mr Davies had “obviously” not watched her footage. he hit back and blasted: “I actually was campaigning for Brexit and have been for years so I don’t need to be given lectures by people like you.”
When asked if he voted for the deal, the onlooker shouted: “You voted for the deal. Oh my God. And have you read the deal?”
She said the Tory MP was a “liar” and insisted the deal means Britain does not leave the EU.
Mr Davies said: “People like you make me want to join the EU again.”
The onlooker added: “He voted for the deal and this guy’s pretending like he’s a leaver. What a liar. You’re a liar. Shame on you. You’re a traitor.”
When grilled once more, Mr Davies said: “I can cope with it. I can sit here all day, to be honest with you. I’m not agitated.”
But the Brexit campaigner continued to hit out at the Tory MP. She said: “Is that what a traitor feels like? You should feel uncomfortable. You’ve betrayed 17.4 million people.”
In response, Mr Davies said: “What have you done for your country? I spent 10 years in uniform for my country.”
The heated exchange continued before the BBC host attempted to intervene in order to conduct the interview over repeated shouting from the onlooker.
The comments come after the Prime Minister opened the door for a second Brexit referendum on Tuesday, as she delivered a speech outlining her last-ditch attempt to get her Brexit deal through the Commons.
Theresa May outlined her “new Brexit deal” yesterday, which allowed the possibility for MPs to have a vote on whether there should be a second referendum in order to get Parliamentarians to vote for the Withdrawal Agreement Bill.
Speaking in London, she said: “I have also listened carefully to those who have been asking for a second referendum.
“I have made my own view on this clear many times. I do not believe this is a route we should take because I believe we should be implementing the result of the first referendum, not asking the British people to vote in a second one.
“But, I recognise the genuine and sincere strength of feeling across the House on this important issue. The Government will, therefore, include in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill at introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a second referendum.
“This must take place before the Withdrawal Agreement can be ratified.
“If the House of Commons were to vote for a referendum, it would be requiring the Government to make provisions for such a referendum including legislation if it wanted to ratify the Withdrawal Agreement.”
