A Twitter user has tweeted video showing ‘a huge amount of violence’ at a speech by Tory MP and leadership prospect Jacob Rees Mogg speech in Bristol:
This will almost inevitably be exploited by the Tory party, and presented by the MSM, as evidence of ‘nasty’ Momentum.
However, SKWAWKBOX analysis of the video shows that the violence appears to instigated by a white-shirted man, presumably a supporter of the Tory MP, taking offence at the protesters, who seems to assault a female protester, triggering a furious reaction from her companion in her defence:
To his credit, Rees Mogg appears to try to intervene to get between the man and his target, leaning back to force him away from the centre of the action.
Viewing the footage, a senior Labour source told the SKWAWKBOX:
There’s a concerted attempt at the moment to portray Jeremy’s supporters as ‘nasty’ and threatening, but this video clearly seems to show intimidation by a thug on the right. It’s important it is not misrepresented.
The woman who was struck has confirmed the events:
The member of the audience in the white shirt started getting violent towards the people being disruptive. I was standing in front of him when he punched me. No student was violent here. https://t.co/TKH2kjC9fR
