*Warning – article features graphic image*
Two Brexit Party MP candidates have shared a violent image about Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson, while female MPs warned in the House of Commons about receiving death threats.
David Blake, Brexit Party PPC for Huntington and Mike Greene, candidate for Peterborough, shared post on Twitter featuring an image of Swinson next to a graphic cartoon of a man with multiple knives in his back.
The image was accompanied by a caption accusing Swinson of “backstabbing” Britain – calling the MP “absolutely disgusting”.
To put this in context, Greene and Blake decided to share this horrific image at the same time that female MPs stood up in the House of Commons and warned that the incendiary language used by Boris Johnson and others has resulted in death threats.
Meanwhile, another Brexit Party PPC, Julian Carter, posted on Twitter to say that people should vote for the Brexit Party to “get the pollution out of politics”.
It seems he joined the wrong party.
