    The leave campaign should not be suspending the campaign. Would she want the remain campaign to do the same. It's nothing to do with a leave campaign, just as all you leftist say Islamic attack a are nothing to do with Islam
    Both campaigns are suspended. It's nothing to do with politics. It's not a political move. It's out of respect. Perhaps it'd do you good to do the same.

    They aren't, i think people just never expected such an atrocity could happen to an mp hence why all the shock
    So why have the referendum campaigning stopped?

    Do you they do that every time someone is murdered?

    agree, another witness was asked if he heard him shout Britain First and he said not at all
    Then again, 3 other people did confirm that the man actually did.

    Both are suspending their campaigns because it is the right thing to do.

    On a serious note, I think most people here understand the gravity of the situation, whether you are Brexit or whatever. It can stop for a day.

    However, then there is the odd nutcase that doesn't seem to understand that basic point.

    Lol. Yeh. You better be his lawyer.

    I mean, if one person says they didn't hear it, that must mean the murderer didn't say it.
    With conflicting eye witness statements, including one person who wasn't there and another who seems to have followed him 2 miles, it would be easy to discredit those statements based on only that evidence.

    Yeah well I'm glad you have said that as others haven't had the same. Maybe you mods should watch yourselves and stop getting so power mad. You ain't nothing

    Every time an elected representative is murdered?

    Is this a serious comment?

    Interesting how none of the righties who would be crowding round this thread in glee had the attacker been shouting 'Allahu akbar' have commented yet on what is a horrible and callous attack on a lovely lady and by all accounts good MP.
    Righty here. I will comment it for you.

    Firstly, the MP was opposing the EU. But even if she did not, this is still nothing compare the Islamo-left did in the last couple of years. You stock just recently killed 50 people in a gay club, our stuck was just this one incident and even it is not yet confirm whether the perpetrator was a right-winger. While I do condemnt this attack the MP should think now of all the victims of the muslims comiteed in the past years and have compassion.

    Why is an elected member more important than your average joe getting murdered?

    Oh good god, cut it out. This is nothing to do with my being a member of the Support Team. A woman has died and both campaigns have been suspended to show respect for her death which was both barbaric and senseless.

    Political violence isn't new. We've had one Prime Minister assassinated and plenty of MPs attacked and murdered.
    In fairness, that one Prime Minister who was assassinated was iirc Lord Liverpool about 180 years ago.

    Politicians of all stripes have reported increasing levels of abuse and violence. Abuse and death threats are much more common than they were prior to the internet becoming ubiquitous

    Edit: It was Spencer Perceval, Lord Liverpool was the following PM

    Sky news interviewed a guy who said he did not hear that shouted..

    One witness said the man attacked a 76 year old man of which Jo tried to intervene and was murdered...

    Do you see the problem here? We have conflicting stories of what happened and what was said

    Of course this is me professing my love for murderous terrorists
    Well done, interviewed one person. Whereas 3 other people did confirm that the man did actually shout Britain First, some with statements.

    Let's be honest, if it were a Muslim you'd be quick to call the attacker a terrorist. Typical

    That's a bit like saying why do we have a 2 minute silence every year for remembrance day.

    I actually do think it is more "important". Not sadder or more tragic, but it certainly has much larger implications when a representative of the people is killed particularly if it was for political reasons. It has the possibility of influencing the political process in an unwarranted manner.

    Tell me how it is respectful to stop doing your job for a whole day.
