Left-wing MP Chris Williamson has been forced to change the venue of an event he had been due to speak at, after staff there were subjected to social media abuse and threats of violence, it has been claimed.
Williamson, who is currently suspended from the Labour Party, following accusations of anti-Semitism which he strenuously denies, was due to speak at an event organized by activists at the Holiday Inn hotel in Brighton.

We will never allow thuggery and intimidation to stifle freedom of speech!

Williamson has been castigated by many of his Labour colleagues in parliament but he has found much support from the grassroots membership over his suspension from the party.
