Owen Jones quits social media after threats of "torture and murder" prr BBC News beat who misrepresent what Owen Jones said

This BBC article misrepresents what Owen Jones said:

'Writer and activist Owen Jones is quitting social media due to the abuse he faces online.

Owen says he has been threatened with "torture and murder" by far right extremists.

But he says the abuse has come from both sides in UK politics with criticism from Labour and Conservative supporters.'

I'm sorry but I've read Owen Jones's statement here - (which the BBC article links to) and he doesn't blame Conservatives for these attacks. He does blame various elements of the left and also right wing extremists, but not Conservatives; maybe at the BBC Conservatives are right wing extremities. I would complain to the BBC but what's the point? Anyone else got any time spare?
