MP Jo Cox critically injured. I lived a few hundred metres from there before I moved to Switzerland.

Apparently by some nutter because she is pro REMAIN - he shouted 'Britain First' as he shot her!

I have a friend who lived just around the corner from there and I spent a lot of time in that area when I was a student.
Terrible news, I hope she pulls through.

Why? It was clearly a shooting.

"He shot this lady once and then he shot her again, (s?)he fell to the floor, leant over shot her once more in the face area."

He then also stabbed her several times. She was also kicked.

What is WRONG with people? So you don't agree we should remain in the EU - is that a reason to shoot and stab someone?

At least they caught the guy. Bet he pleads diminished responsibility and ends up in a cushy mental hospital for the rest of his life.

RIP Jo.

Mod moved my post from 'a shooting just occured in fill in the blank' to here... I guess a post on some guy shouting something idological before brutally taking another life with a gun was derailing the discussion on all muslims being terrorists and islam being a hateful idology that is being had there.

Re: Jo Cox MP dead after shooting attack

Latest is that she intervened in a street fight with a man who was known locally to be mentally ill. Very very sad.

That's how I've been reading it from the start. Basically from what I've read she got herself involved with the wrong thing, in the wrong place, and at the wrong time.

It wasn't a targeted attack from what I can glean, but nevertheless incredibly tragic. My sympathies lie with her family.

I guess it's possible you have a greater insight into the incident than her husband.

Re: Jo Cox MP dead after shooting attack

I'd like to express my condolences to Ms. Cox's family as well as her constituents. I know this will spark debate, but I think that now is a time to mourn.
