ANGRY Remainers stormed a Tory MP’s office today in protest over Parliament’s suspension while cops are braced for demos outside Jacob Rees-Mogg's home
Pro-EU voters are furious after Boris Johnson asked the Queen to suspend the Commons in the run-up to Brexit.
This daring move will hobble Remainer efforts to stop a No Deal exit from the European Union on October 31.
In response, an ex-Labour councillor candidate Howard Simpson tweeted out Mr Mogg’s home address demanding people turn up to protest.
Mr Simpson later deleted his tweet, but not before he'd told thousands to show up at the Brexiteer’s village in Somerset to demonstrate.
Police have confirmed they were braced for a large demo outside the Commons Leader’s house this evening.
And in extraordinary scenes today, Tory MP Alex Chalk, who actually voted Remain in the referendum, was forced to face down an angry mob outside his Cheltenham office.
In a video clip, Mr Chalk – who is the Private Secretary to Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab – attempted to calm down his constituents telling that the move to suspend Parliament sent out the “wrong” message.
And when the MP joked: “What can you do, bring down the government?”, the crowd cheered loudly.
This comes as backers of the Jeremy Corbyn's grassroots group Momentum urged to “occupy bridges and blockade roads” to protest Boris' plan to shut down Parliament.
And they called for “Stop The Coup” protests in major cities across Britain for Saturday – followed by a mass demonstration on Tuesday in London to coincide with the return of MPs to Westminster.
Momentum national coordinator Laura Parker, who said she would occupy Parliament if she had to, stormed: "Real power doesn’t sit with the Queen or in Parliament. It’s with us the people – and that’s why we need to take action.
"Our message to Johnson is this: if you steal our democracy, we'll shut down the streets.
But Tories reacted with fury to Momentum's ludicrous plan.
David TC Davies told The Sun: "Momentum seem to think that no one should do anything without their permission – and they're going to block the streets if they don't get their way.
"And it's ironic that they are complaining about Parliament being shut down while they are stopping anyone from getting there at all."
Another MP added: “They appear to be trying to ‘Stop the Coup’ as they put it by launching one of their own.”
A former Labour MP – Tom Blenkinsop – tweeted that Momentum was “playing into the hands of the right” with their fury.
It comes after thousands of people turned up to protest outside Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament last night.
