Former MP and special adviser to Brexit Secretary David Davis, Stewart Jackson, yesterday used social media to attack the family of a child recovering from an operation at Great Ormond Street Hospital because of their support for the People’s Vote March on Saturday (see below).
Commenting, Wes Streeting MP, leading supporter of a People’s Vote, said:
“Whatever your views on what’s gone wrong with Brexit, attacking the family of a child recovering from an operation in hospital is a new low. There is a vicious tone to much of our political debate today and that has been often been driven by Brexit supporters like Stewart Jackson. But this latest episode goes far beyond the usual rough and tumble of politics. Stewart Jackson should apologise to this boy and his parents.”
