Watch: The moment Selby’s MP tells a man to F-off in the street
This is the moment a riled North Yorkshire MP told a protester to F-off in the street.
A video posted by veteran House of Commons activist Steve Bray shows Selby and Ainsty MP Nigel Adams swearing at him at least twice.
Steve was known as the ‘Stop Brexit Man’ after he made daily protests about leaving the EU throughout 2018 and 2019 on College Green outside Westminster
Mr Bray is questioning the Conservative MP near Parliament about the planned reforms of social care.
At one point Mr Bray says: “We elect people like you. So we’re going to hold you to account.”
In reply, Mr Adams says: “Why don’t you talk to your MP and fuck off?”
He tells him to ‘fuck off, Dave’ later in the video.
It has been watched 86,000 times and created a storm of comments.
Mr Adams is a foreign office minister. A spokesperson for the MP told YorkMix: “The gentleman in the blue top hat who Mr Adams directed some colourful language towards is a well known political activist known as ‘Stop Brexit Man’.
“He has spent the last few years harassing, following and hurling abuse at elected Parliamentarians as well as interrupting journalists, preventing some from doing their job of reporting the news and conducting interviews.
“Mr Adams’ remarks no doubt reflect those of many democratic representatives trying to deliver on the will of the people and others seeking to go about their business who have been harassed or had their work disrupted by this individual and his handful of followers.”
