A staunch opponent of Britain remaining in the European Union, protester James Goddard, has been reportedly arrested after an incident in Salford, near Manchester on Monday night.
Mr Goddard and a group of “Yellow Vest” protesters are seen in a video blocking the path of a car outside the Lowry Theatre in Salford where Mr Corbyn was giving a speech.
Mr Goddard, speaking through a megaphone, also called Mr Corbyn and the Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell “traitors”.
Mr Goddard and his companions then broke out into a spontaneous chant of: “We love you Boris, we do.”
When Mr Goddard continued to obstruct the car as it tried to move off with a police escort, he was arrested, handcuffed and taken away in a police van.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson told The Independent: “Shortly before 8pm on Monday, police arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of breach of the peace.
Far right protesters targeted Corbyn and his supporters in Salford tonight, yelling "Corbyn is a traitor", "Communist scum, off our streets", and "We love you Boris, we do."— Owen Jones🌹 (@OwenJones84) September 2, 2019
One real election fear is how an increasingly thuggish far right will behave. https://t.co/8xUuutjIvN
Several Labour Party supporters nearby described Mr Goddard and others as “fascist scum.”
During the speech Mr Corbyn said: "When a government finds itself without a majority the solution is not to undermine democracy. The solution is to let the people decide and call a general election."
