    Wow. Thinking of her and her family.

    Wonder what the motive was? I hope nothing to do with the referendum?

    This is so shocking, isn't it.

    I have been following the Guardian Live Blog, which has described some very distressing eyewitness accounts. It is very worrying that this sicko attacked her 'face area'.

    They have the culprit in custody, so all that remains is to hope she makes it. Hopefully the fact that she is still hanging onto life is a good sign.

    I'm so shocked. This is just a few miles from me, though she wasn't my local MP I knew about her. My age, young kids, trying to do her best for her community. Apparently the gun was "home made", wtf?! I'm stunned and so sad for her family and friends.

    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the country would be ‘in shock at the horrific murder’ of MP Jo Cox, who was a ‘much loved colleague’.

    Witnesses said the 41-year-old was kicked by her attacker as she lay on the floor and that she was shot repeatedly. It’s also believed she was stabbed and dragged along by her hair.

    The Batley and Spen MP was airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary and a 52-year-old man has been arrested. The man who was arrested was today locally named as ‘loner’ Tommy Mair.

    Both sides have suspended campaigning in the referendum.

    Who is Tommy Mair? The man police arrested after Labour MP Jo Cox was shot

    Thomas Mair has been named locally as the man who shot Labour MP Jo Cox

    [​IMG]

    Labour MP Jo Cox has died after being shot and stabbed by an attacker on a West Yorkshire street.

    According to local reports, the man has been named as 52-year-old Tommy Mair from Birstall.

    But who is Tommy Mair? Who is the man police believe carried out the attack? And what could have inspired him?

    I have to wonder if he wasn't some loner who got all ginned up on internet drivel connected with the upcoming Euro referendum.

    I posted on another board that I fear we in the US are going to see some political assassinations before our own miserable election is over.

    I feel sick to my stomach over this. I can't imagine how her husband is coping with their 3 and 5 year old children wondering where mummy is. My heart is breaking.

    MOO but imo this is an assassination and an act of terror.

    Cox’s husband, Brendan, said after her death was announced: “Today is the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. More difficult, more painful, less joyful, less full of love. I and Jo’s friends and family are going to work every moment of our lives to love and nurture our kids and to fight against the hate that killed Jo.

    “Jo believed in a better world and she fought for it every day of her life with an energy and a zest for life that would exhaust most people. She would have wanted two things above all else to happen now – one, that our precious children are bathed in love and two, that we all unite to fight against the hatred that killed her. Hate doesn’t have a creed, race or religion, it is poisonous.
