    UK Labour MP Jo Cox Assassinated

    Sad to see...

    MP Jo Cox dies from injuries after she is shot by man who shouted 'Britain First'

    West Yorkshire MP was arriving at her local office when she was attacked by a man who wrestled her to the ground.


    Attacker said to have shouted 'Britain First' as he kicked mother-of-two before shooting and repeatedly stabbing her.


    53-year-old man, named locally as gardener Tommy Mair, was arrested at scene after armed police flooded the area.

    That headline implies that her being a remain campaigner is linked to her being shot.

    Him yelling "Britain First" might indicate that too?

    Has been mentioned (Remain MP) a few times on the radio...

    @Nelson. She was already dead when I first heard about it 3 hours ago. I think someone said it happened at 1.00pm today... about 7 1/2 hours ago...

    Seems by all accounts Tommy Mair had no previous... a quiet gardener... I wonder what possessed him to one day turn into a violent murderer? To not only shoot her, but stab her repeatedly and kick her as well... did the idea of Brexit really turn him into a psychopathic killer?

    After all the shit we receive (Yank's) after such terrible occurrences, I'm tempted (guns)...but NO, out of respect!

    Condolences to all Brit's for the tragic loss.
