‘We have to put forward how aggressive the Left can be – it’s not us. If they want to call me Right-wing because I’m supporting Trump then I must be Right wing, but I’m not a racist.’ – TRUMP Supporter who was assaulted by a group of protesters including Siobhan Prigent
More than 1,300 people signed a petition urging the University College London Hospitals (UCLH) NHS Foundation Trust to fire the angry protester who was filmed (see video below) taking part in surrounding an elderly pro-Trump man and harassing him.
The man was eventually “milkshaked” by someone else in the crowd, but the dramatic images of Siobhan Prigent were hard to ignore, prompting the online petitions calling for her to be sacked from her job.
Prigent deleted all of her social media accounts and issued the ’empty’ apology below, but not before she posted several nasty messages on Twitter.
‘I am very sorry for my behaviour today. I should have protested peacefully and I didn’t, and I regret that. I’ve let myself down and I do understand that fully. There are two sides to every story, but my actions were my own, and that’s on me. Please leave my family and friends out of it.’
Prigent has resigned from her job.
UCLH spokesman told MailOnline today:
‘Ms. Prigent has today informed us that she will no longer be working at UCLH because she does not want us or the NHS to suffer any more negative attention…we pride ourselves on treating our patients and colleagues with kindness and compassion in all that we do.’
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON PRIGENT:
A brave Trump supporter was surrounded and overwhelmed by a crowd of angry protesters today during the failed 250K person protest that was predicted but never materialized.
The ironic thing is that the man these protesters support had just spoken about how President Trump is a “negative force” in politics. Jeremy Corbyn needs to take a look in the mirror!
The angry crowd yelled in the face of the brave man and then someone “milkshaked” him.
The milkshake trend started in Great Britain when Nigel Farage had a milkshake thrown on him by a protester.
He remained stoic and said, “I’m here to stay!”
The man was surrounded and then doubled over trying to protect himself from the crowd:
The man was eventually taken away by police:
