A CONSERVATIVE Brexiteer has been accused of being a “liar” and a “traitor” by a Brexit-supporting member of the public as he gave a television interview.

Monmouth MP David Davies was speaking to BBC Wales about a rise in abuse against MPs when he was confronted by the woman.

In the footage, the woman calls him a “traitor” when he tells her he is pro-Brexit but voted for Theresa May’s deal.

“So you voted for the deal and you are pretending you are a leaver,” she said. “What a liar, you’re a liar. Shame on you. You’re a traitor.

“You should feel uncomfortable. You’ve betrayed 17.4 million people.”

In response, Mr Davies said: “Where were you when I was campaigning for Brexit. You were nowhere, you were behind your keyboards and now you have come out. You are not a Brexiteer.

“I have campaigned for Brexit and I have done for years so I don’t need to be given lectures by people like you.

“People like you make me want to join the EU again.”

And speaking to the camera, Mr Davies, who has started wearing a body camera to and from Parliament in response to intimidation, said: “And that’s what you put up with when you’re out here all the time.”

Welsh Assembly member Alun Davies re-tweeted the video clip and praised the politician for how he handled the incident.

“But we also need a conversation about how we can disagree with each other, have a serious debate and rebuild our politics. In Wales and the UK,” he added.

The Monmouth MP replied saying he “100%” agreed.
