When it comes to abuse, here’s the proof Labour and its cohorts are vile SCUM.
I should have come down here with a bat and smashed your face in.’
Former Shadow International Development Secretary Kate Osamor talking last year to a reporter from The Times who had asked her for a comment on a story about her employing her son in her parliamentary office. She threw a bucket of water over the reporter, told him to ‘f*** off’ and rang the police to accuse him of stalking her.
‘The day that… you are hurting us more than you are helping us, I won’t knife you in the back, I’ll knife you in the front.’
Labour MP Jess Phillips on Jeremy Corbyn in 2015 — using violent language in spite of condemning John McDonnell for using it. Yesterday, she criticised the Prime Minister for using language that inflamed ‘hatred and division’.
Labour councillor Owen Collins, writing earlier this month.
‘Just watched The Riot Club and it’s genuinely left me wanting to burn every single Oxford college to the ground… preferably with every single Tory MP inside one at the time. The Conservative Party is cancer in this country.’

‘Get on your knees, bitch’

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, discussing a ‘sack Esther McVey day’ organised in 2014 by Labour activists opposed to the then Cabinet minister.
There was a whole group in the audience that completely kicked off … they were arguing, ‘Why are we sacking her? Why aren’t we lynching the bitch?’
John McDonnell again, using his blog to ‘honour’ IRA terrorists in 2015.
‘It’s about time we started honouring those people involved in the armed struggle. It was the bombs and bullets and sacrifice made by the likes of Bobby Sands that brought Britain to the negotiating table. The peace we have now is due to the action of the IRA.
Left-Wing Comedian Jo Brand said.
‘Why bother with a milkshake [to throw at Farage] when you could use battery acid?’
Dr Paolo Gerbaudo, a lecturer at King’s College, London, at a conference of Corbyn-supporting Momentum in 2017.
My answer is hate… make the Left hate again. I’m full of hate these days.’
Guardian editorial published online this month. After an outcry, the words were removed and the paper apologised. But it was not the first time a Guardian writer had used the death of David Cameron’s son Ivan to score political points.
Mr Cameron has known pain and failure in his life but it has always been a limited failure and privileged pain… had he been trying to get the system to look after a dying parent rather than a dying child, he might have understood a little of the damage that his policies have done.’
Andrew Stafford, a longstanding Labour councillor in Enfield, North London, speaking to a young Conservative during a 2015 debate. He apologised but rejected calls to step down.
Sit down, you c***.’
Guardian commentator and food writer Jack Monroe in a 2014 tweet. She was disowned by Sainsbury’s as the face of an advertising campaign but insisted: ‘I stand by comment the PM uses his experience.’
‘[David Cameron] uses stories about his dead son as misty-eyed rhetoric to legitimise selling our NHS to his friends.’

Labour MP David Lammy said.
‘Brexiteers are like Nazis? I would say that wasn’t strong enough.’
A mob of Left-wing supporters holding signs demanding ‘Tories out’ in a video published online last month.
‘People often ask us what it is that makes us tick — it’s Boris Johnson’s head upon a stick, stick, stick.’
For three years, Leave supporters have been characterised in the most offensive terms by the Left — branded ‘racists’ and ‘thickos’ for having the temerity to want to break free from the Brussels’ orbit. Where was Labour’s condemnation of this provocative and patronising language?
Who on the Opposition benches urged moderation as Labour MPs branded the PM a ‘dictator’ for trying everything possible to deliver on the referendum result?
When did supposedly impartial broadcasters ever-present Labour’s attacks on the Government as inflammatory — even when they used words such as ‘wicked’ and ‘coup’?
You could have been forgiven for thinking Remain activists had taken over the Today studio if you listened to the BBC’s flagship Radio 4 programme yesterday. Guest after guest lined up to take swipes at Mr Johnson and the Government with barely a critical question to break their flow.
The reality is that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn states he wants to deliver on the referendum result while simultaneously doing everything possible to derail it.
The public wishes to leave the EU has been thwarted and frustrated at every turn by a ‘we know better’ Remain-dominated Parliament and an opportunistic Opposition that refuses to deliver for the people it professes to serve.
