Campaigning: Mr Russell-Moyle, undeterred by the attack, was out demonstrating with the People’s March.

I said this would happen and I’m not the only one.

Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle has been assaulted on the street while campaigning for a final vote on Brexit. The incident happened on March 21.

The attacker is said to have called Mr Russell-Moyle a “traitor” before grabbing his glasses and trying to hit him.

Coming after prime minister Theresa May’s statement last week, in which she blamed other MPs – such as Mr Russell-Moyle – for the UK’s failure to leave the European Union by the March 29 deadline demanded by her invocation of Article 50, his claim that the attacker was motivated by her words seems logical.

In fact, Mrs May was reported to the police by a fellow member of the left-wing media shortly after she made her statement – for inciting violence against other MPs.

I doubted that the Metropolitan service would take the accusation seriously at the time; perhaps Mr Russell-Moyle’s complaint will encourage senior officers to think again if necessary.
