Conservative MP Mark Gino Francois threatening Mr Steve Bray:”We are signing your death warrant, on the 31st of October you’re out of a job”.
London, 19 June 2019 – Mark Gino Francois, Tory Member of the British Parliament for Rayleigh and deputy chair of the far right Conservative think tank European Research Group, today has bullied with death threats Mr Steve Bray, a man symbol of the anti-Brexit stances in the UK and abroad, who with his pacific and permanent presence around the Houses of Parliament represents with grace, moral strength, dignity and sense of humour the commitment of remainers and EU citizens to stopping Brexit.
Mr Steve Bray was peacefully asking Francois a comment related to Boris Johnson’s leadership race, when this answered “I tell you what, in the nicest possible way, we are signing your death warrant, on the 31st of October you’re out of a job”. “Is that a threat?” a woman taking the video asked him? But Francois did not answer and closed the door. The video of the scene has been posted on Twitter by Steve Bray receiving both likes of approval of the Conservative MP’s behaviour on the one side, and outraged concerns of many on the other calling Steve Bray, alias ‘Mr Stop Brexit’, to report the death threat to the MET Police.
The death threat and the “we are signing a death warrant” are not just a serious offence themselves in case anybody used them against any normal citizen…
These are a serious offence also because one MP, a Parliament representative used his power to intimidating and threaten with death (whether real or metaphorical), a person who de facto symbolizes British and EU citizens’ peaceful anti Brexit choice, furthermore threatening European residents of losing ‘a job’ after 31st of October, date of the exit
