[Part 1] Dear @Nigel_Farage, We have never seen eye to eye on Brexit, but people are entitled to have different opinions.

It appears you do not feel the same way about this though after threatening to pick up a rifle if you don’t get your way?!
[Part 2] As I mentioned to you before the use of this ill thought through, threatening language is incitement. I still believe you have blood on your hands for the murder of Jo Cox - you wound people up with provocative language that is not befitting of any MEP or MP.
[Part 3] Frankly, the only democratic thing to do now, largely because of illegal activity committed by you and your chums, is to have a confirmatory vote on Theresa’s deal. Suggesting if this happens people should take up arms is pathetic.
[Part 4] I think at times you are abhorrent, an embarrassment to the UK, but I wouldn’t tell people to go and hurt you - surely you understand violence is not a reasonable response to democratic process?!
[Part 5] I look forward to your public apology on this. You cannot underestimate as someone in the public eye the impact your words have.

Yesterday I myself was threatened on twitter for posting something completely innocuous about brexit ‘to be boiled alive in acid’.
[Part 6] You are stirring people up making them angry about something complex that in some cases they have little understanding of. You know it’s true and you should take more care with your language.

#Violence is never ok.
