Remainers hurl abuse as Ann Widdecombe and Brexit Party MEPs arrive in London

Brexit firebrand Ann Widdecombe spearheaded an entourage of chipper British MEPs buoyed in the knowledge it would be their last-ever journey from Brussels to London as members of the European Union. But as the group arrived on British soil they were heckled by angry members of the public. One woman even appeared to threaten to spit at Ms Widdecombe in a shocking and repugnant attack caught on video by Express.co.uk. 

Speaking to Express.co.uk shortly after the vulgar act, a defiant Ms Widdecombe said: It’s tremendous. We have walked out of the European Parliament for the last time today.

“We have been waiting for this day for a very long time.

“Nigel Farage has been working for it for 25 years. But today our duty is done. Our harvest is home.”

Of the unprovoked abuse towards pro-Brexit MEPs, a Brexit Party spokesman told Express.co.uk: “We condemn all acts of aggression and abuse in any form. We hope Remainers and Leavers can come together today to celebrate this constitutional milestone.”

Speaking outside St Pancras as his colleagues posed for photos, Brexit Party MEP Rupert Lowe, also undeterred, shared his thoughts on a historic day for Great Britain. 

He said: “It has been a long fight. I have really enjoyed it. I am not a politician but I have enjoyed participating in the Parliament.

“And there are some great people in the European Parliament. It is just that it is structurally wrong.

“We are not leaving Europe. We are leaving the European Union.

“It is now down to Boris Johnson and his team to deliver on their promises and do what they were elected to do, which is to represent the interests of the British people.

“And if they fail to that, then woe betide them!”
