Great Grimsby Labour MP Melanie Onn has been the subject of threats, including of being ‘gunned down’ – for opposing a new EU referendum.
Ms Onn tweeted this morning about emails she had received:
The matter has been reported to the police.
While the vast majority of responses to Ms Onn’s tweets were supportive, a few ‘FBPE’ types – appallingly but not astonishingly – couldn’t restrain themselves from using the thread to criticise Ms Onn and push their ‘stop Brexit’ agenda:
Sadly, such crass insensitivity is anything but uncommon and such tweets have been seen in response to all kinds of tragedy, which have contributed to an increasing distaste for the ‘PV’ movement among many Labour supporters.
Ms Onn should be applauded for her bravery in confronting the issue and her publishing specifics.
