Cork police have arrested 41yo Brit in connection with death threats
Irish police in Cork have arrested and charged a 41-year-old British man in connection with threats to kill a female British MP. Skwawkbox can exclusively reveal that the MP is Claudia Webbe.
The arrest and charges come after a man made threatening phone calls to Ms Webbe. Around fifteen Gardai officers raided a residential property yesterday, seizing a number of electronic items.
Ms Webbe has been subjected to a torrent of foul abuse since her conviction by a magistrate, without a jury, on a single count of harassment relating to just two phone calls to a ‘friend’ of her fiancé. The case has been widely exaggerated and misreported by the so-called ‘mainstream’ media and Ms Webbe has received no support from the Labour party, which immediately expelled her last week despite her appeal against the charges to be heard this week.
Ms Webbe’s supporters last week released a ‘dossier of hate’ detailing some of the racism and abuse she has faced dince the trial began.
The threat to Ms Webbe comes in the wake of the murder of Conservative MP Sir David Amess. Labour politicians, many of whom have previously used abusive language toward the left, have pontificated about the need for restraint in political debate. Labour’s machine has done nothing to protect Ms Webbe and its actions have likely fuelled – and at the very least done nothing to quell – the disgraceful abuse toward her.
