-Has moved into sheltered accommodation with daughter as scared for safety

A woman who was kicked in the head and needed stitches believes she was the victim of a ‘political attack.’

Mother-of-one Jade Unal claims she and her mother were cornered by thugs at a working men’s club in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

Ms Unal had just been to a Labour party talk about Brexit and met her mother for a drink while on the way home when the ‘completely unprovoked’ incident occurred.

Ms Unal, 26, said she now fears for her and her three-year-old daughter’s safety and they moved into sheltered housing after the incident happened two weeks ago.

She said the thugs must have ‘had their eye on me because I’m quite outspoken.

“They were calling me a ‘Labour c***’, a ‘posh snob’, ‘you think you’re better than everyone else’. They said they knew where I lived. It was horrific.

“Before I knew it they were laying into me, screaming. They knocked me out and kept on kicking me even while my mum tried to defend me.”

Jade has gone into sheltered housing, fearing the thugs who struck at Brook House Working Men’s Club in Wakefield, West Yorks, could target her house.

She runs the local Young Labour section and was hoping to stand as a councillor in next year’s elections. But now she fears it could be too dangerous to speak up and become a public figure.

Jade added: “I have a three-year-old daughter who inspires me, as Tory cuts affect everything around us. Austerity is obvious and instead of dealing with the poorest parts, people are left to fend for themselves.

“It’s no wonder they hate politics and those involved. They could have killed me, but I do understand to an extent.”

Jade, studying for a degree in public service management, said the attack was a sorry echo of what happened to Jo Cox, the MP murdered in nearby Batley and Spen in 2015.

She added: “My worst fear was for somebody to know who I am and hurt me. It’s come true.”
