The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “‘There’s been widespread vilification of politicians’ says Dominic Raab” – below is their description.

Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab has told BBC Breakfast that there has been “widespread vilification of politicians” in recent times.

Mr Raab said colleagues – particularly women – have received “worse abuse” than himself but that he has been the victim of three recent threats that required “intervention”.

He also warned that online hate towards MPs is “out of control”, after the murder of Sir David Amess.

The Justice Secretary noted the levels of abuse faced by MPs and said those most at risk of radicalisation had spent more time on the internet during the pandemic.
