You don’t need to be a migrant or a member of a minority community to feel unsafe in the rising tide of hate: one woman was assaulted in the run-up to the vote for wearing a Remain badge. This is the context in which a Ukip councillor advocated killing Remain voters – although he later claimed he was joking. Meanwhile a homophobic mob was witnessed chanting in Central London – an unheard of phenomenon in the metropolis in recent years.
