The Guardian journalist and prominent pro-Corbyn activist Owen Jones has filmed himself being viciously mobbed and verbally abused by a group of far-right Yellow Vest thugs as he made his way into Westminster this afternoon.

Jones was labelled a “traitor“, a “tampon“, and, ironically, a “vile vicious little bully“, by the aggressive protestors.

Despite the vicious barrage, Jones managed to stay impeccably calm as he filmed himself being subjected to a disgusting level of abuse from the massed pro-Brexit group.

Captioning his video, Jones wrote:

“Just met some lovely Tommy Robinson fans and I’d love for you to get to know them too”

You can watch the despicable incident below:

The incident has already been condemned right across the political spectrum, with the main protagonist alleged to be James Goddard – a notorious far-right thug.

Just minutes after the attack, Jones took to Twitter to warn that “If anything happens to one of us on the left at the hands of these fascists“, then the right-wing press – who, Jones says, legitimise such appalling behaviour – will “share the blame”.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
