Housing minister Gavin Barwell has taken to Twitter to tell those for and against Brexit to "tone down the rhetoric" that has become increasingly aggressive in recent days.
A few minutes after Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt appeared on BBC TV's Marr programme giving similar arguments, Barwell took to social media on Sunday morning to back the official government line on the latest Article 50 Brexit controversy.
This follows last week's High Court verdict stating the government should seek parliamentary endorsement of its strategy before triggering Article 50 - and sharp headlines criticising the judges concerned in tabloid newspapers the next day.
"Although verdict disappointing, it won't change outcome. If Parliament has to vote I'm very confident it will support invoking Article 50" he said in the first of four tweets on the subject.
"We may sometimes disagree with their verdicts but an independent judiciary is one of the features or a democracy not an attack on it."
"We may sometimes disagree with what they say but a free press is also one of the features of a democracy."
"We need to bring the country back together so it would be helpful if the zealots on both sides toned down the rhetoric" Barwell concluded in his final tweet.
Earlier on Sunday Barwell said he had received many emails from constituents about the referendum in the previous 48 hours.
His call for peace appeared to have fallen on deaf ears on the basis of the replies to his tweets.
