Labour MP Jo Cox Murdered

CYM9-8hWYAAyP4A

Today the Labour MP for Batley and Spen was murdered while holding a public surgery in her constituency. Reports are that a man approached her, shot her, stabbed her multiple times, kicked and punched her and left her in a pool of blood on the road. Eyewitnesses claim they heard the man chanting “Britain First”, a probable reference to the fascist political organisation of the same name.

I have a lot to say on what I think led to this kind of tragedy, but those thoughts can wait. Now, we all must send best wishes of sympathy and support to her husband and their two children, and to her friends and family. Jo was one of the good guys, a true progressive, and she will be sorely missed. RIP Jo x
