Here’s Nigel Farage launching his so-called new party, the Brexit Party, where the career politician rallied against ‘career politicians’ and threatened to put the ‘fear of God’ into MPs.
“We can again start to put the fear of God into our MPs – they deserve nothing less after the way they treated us”

And here really are the only 5 replies you need to that.
You cannot scare me, you shouldn’t try, why don’t you try to build rather than break, it’s harder, takes more time and intelligence granted, anyone can play fear peddling villain it’s politics paint by numbers. Put away your finger paints, pick up a pen https://t.co/Ct6YXxuwI9

One MP has already been murdered by someone who was radicalised and enabled by the rhetoric propagated by this scumbag and his fetid ilk. I would imagine the rest are scared enough already. https://t.co/MFZqGFg8wq

I’ve received death threats against myself, my wife and my children for standing up to the far right politics of hate. I will never be cowed, but what a disgraceful way to behave in our democracy. Nigel Farage knows exactly what he’s inciting with these dog whistle threats. https://t.co/0YAl59CIoP

Just a reminder that less than 3 years ago an MP was murdered by a far-right terrorist who shouted “This is for Britain. Britain will always come first” as he killed her. https://t.co/bJQMlYihgr

And separate, but related, was this.
Nigel Farage (20 yrs an MEP, about stand for re-election as head of a new political party he’s set up) just had a pop at “career politicians” not representing the “real people” before introducing the first candidate & voice of the real people: Jacob Rees Mogg’s sister Annunziata.
