Tory Brexiteer Mark Francois gets very very angry with Will Self

Who says Brexit isn't fun?

There have been plenty of spats over Brexit since the referendum, but never anything quite like the one between author Will Self and hardcore Brexiteer MP Mark Francois on Politics Live.

The argument began when Self suggested that racists would definitely have voted for Brexit.

“Your problem really Mark is not that you have to be a racist or an anti-Semite to vote for Brexit, it’s just that every racist and anti-Semite in the country did.”

Igoring the first part of that, Francois then got it in his head that Self was attacking everyone who voted for Brexit.

Getting agitated, he called for Self to “apologise on national television” for insulting the millions of people who voted to leave in 2016.

The spat went on for a while longer without progressing and eventually ended with the pair locking each other in a deathly staring match.
