MP Damian Green swears at Brexit protester following interview disruption

By Charlie Harman

Footage has emerged of Ashford MP Damian Green swearing at a prolific Brexit protester following a disrupted interview.

Mr Green had just finished an interview when he was confronted by Remainer Steve Bray - renowned for yelling "stop Brexit" during TV interviews.

In video taken by Mr Bray, the politician is asked: "Hello, can I ask you how you’re feeling about the vote yesterday?"

Affronted, Mr Green responds: "No, you can’t because you’ve just tried to shout over an interview I’ve done, like you do everyone else.”

Mr Bray responds: "I didn’t, I was singing."

The Ashford MP then shared with him what he thought of him which Mr Green called a piece of political analysis.

The footage of the altercation was uploaded by Mr Bray's group Stand of Defiance European Movement (SODEM).

The avid Remainer comes from Port Talbot in Wales and rose to prominence in 2017 following the Brexit referendum.

The rare coin dealer quickly gained the name Mr Stop Brexit, and is often seen trying to get in the background of televised interviews.

He's instantly recognisable from his costume - a blue top hat with a yellow band and a Union Jack cape.

Steve Bray founded Remainer organisation SODEM in September 2017.
