A furious protestor interrupted an Esther McVey’s leadership speech, after he launched a tirade and shouted “you are fake news! Fake Tories.”
ITV’s political correspondent, Paul Brand uploaded the video on Twitter, and described the protestor as being “angry that MPs haven’t delivered Brexit.”
The protestor, who said he is a “paid-up member” of the Conservative party, interrupted McVey’s speech and stormed the podium, where he shouted:
Excuse me, you are all fake news and these people are fake Conservatives.
The man has been identified as Graham Moore, and he was swiftly removed from the building.
The protestor’s interruption comes as McVey vowed to give public sector workers a pay rise and increase funding for policing and education.
Speaking at the Bruges Group in central London, she said:
My clear agenda is to deliver Brexit on the 31st of October and then we must unite the country, and then unite our party too.
Britain's public sector workers need a pay rise and our police and our schools desperately need cash. That's what my campaign is about.
This comes after McVey received intense criticism after she admitted to “trying” marijuana, an illegal drug, and for appearing on Good Morning and saying she has no intention of making the drug legal because it could be treated as a “gateway.”
