An angry Leave voter took Tim Farron to task over his views on Brexit while the Liberal Democrats were out campaigning.
The party leader got an earful from pensioner Malcolm Baker who insisted that Leave voters “do know, we did know” what they were voting for in the EU referendum and also accused him of believing people who voted for Brexit were racist.
Farron was in the middle of a TV interview in Kidlington, near Oxford, when the 65-year-old decided he had something to get off his chest. Be warned – there’s some bad language in this clip.
People have been reacting to the video online, with some giving him a virtual pat on the back.
Well said Malcolm and Happy Birthday to you sir. You spoke for a lot of people there 👍

Though others were not in agreement – especially at the bit where he ended up calling Britain a “fantastic company”.

Some used it as an opportunity to praise Farron for his approach to Baker.

Though, as ever, not everyone saw it that way.
Baker revealed that for the first time ever, he wouldn’t be voting Labour and would instead be voting for Theresa May.
