Far-right figureheads have applauded Boris Johnson’s latest Commons performance, during which he dismissed comments about murdered MP Jo Cox.
In his speech Johnson told MPs that “the best way to honour the memory of Jo Cox and indeed the best way to bring this country together would be, I think, to get Brexit done.”
Tommy Robinson, who founded the English Defence League, used his Telegram account to mock MPs about death threats.
He reiterated his support for Boris Johnson, supporting his efforts to campaign “for the people” against the “traitors in parliament”.
A Facebook post from the Democratic Football Lads Alliance criticised the “vile b*stards” in Labour and SNP for using Jo Cox’s death in a debate in the House of Commons.
“We are all disgusted by the word ‘humbug’. Oh no wait, we aren’t. We are disgusted by you, you utter c**s. Not by him [Boris Johnson]”.
The post added that MPs were “corrupt and evil” for “abuse of powers” and “taking orders from a foreign power”.
Katie Hopkins, who supported Tommy Robinson during his court case, tweeted: “MPs complaining about being called TRAITOR – it’s because you betrayed the people and you betrayed democracy in the UK.”
Britain First’s Jayda Fransen also shared clips from the House of Commons to her supporters.
Jo Cox was murdered by far right fanatic Thomas Mair who shouted “Britain First” before shooting and stabbing her.
