    Eyewitness report:
    "He shot this lady once and then he shot her again, he fell to the floor, leant over shot her once more in the face area.
    "Somebody tried to grab him, wrestling with him and then he wielded a knife, like a hunting knife, just started lunging at her with a knife half a dozen times. People were screaming and running from the area".

    I speak for everyone when I say this man is a disgusting ****.

    Can people just shut the **** up about politics and hope that she survives and the attacker gets what he deserves.
    This is TSR, jumping to the political side is going to happen straight away.

    Sickening attack, I'm glad the perpetrator was captured swiftly.

    Wow he shot her three times as well as stabbing. Much less chance of her surviving that, hope he missed anything vital.

    What a sick and despicable act. I pray she will get through this. The gunman must have been a real nutter....they didn't find him straight away apparently and my school is pretty close so we were on lock down for a bit. A scary and weird experience seeing all those helicopters and police cars. She has 2 young children too :heart::heart:

    Leave campaign has suspended for the day.

    Farage is going to have to spend the night preparing his weasel words if it turns out this loon was a Kipper.

    Wow you are trying to say this was an act from the Leave campaign in order to smear it? Holy **** thats contemptible even by remain standards

    Hopefully if it's true that a makeshift gun was used, damage will be less compared to a higher calibre gun.

    Does anyone have anymore information on Jo's health atm?

    Don't be ridiculous, I said "if".

    It's now increasingly sounding like he was from Britain First, which is of course solidly in the Leave camp, so I wasn't far wrong anyway, was I?

    Firstly you made this post long after it was reported he shouted Britain First and secondly how the hell do you thing him shouting Britain first is not far wrong from the vote leave campaign?

    You see wanting to be able control immigration and taking back our sovereignity the same as a racist xenophobic BNP founded political party??

    You must be very very very alarmed that 50% of the UK are going to vote for Britain First in the next elections then

    It takes a desperate and pathetic man to try and smear the leave campaign with this attack.

    there is unquestionably a significant right wing extremism problem
    Proof?

    Also, saying that growth in right wing parties is a problem is incorrect, that's not extremism.

    I didn't see the Britain First thing until after I made the post.

    I still think it will turn out to have been some kind of extremist attack by a far Right fanatic, maybe UKIP isn't in the frame, but time will tell.

    The guy who stabbed this MP smeared the leave campaign all by himself. No need for anyone else to do so.

    Anders Brevik massacre is one, the attempted Euro 2016 attack which was stopped by Ukrainian police a few weeks ago.

    As mentioned above (and I have noticed this on Twitter), right-wingers are now saying his motivations are irrelevant and he's just a lone lunatic, while some on the left are saying that now (unlike in Orlando, Florida) motivations do matter and his political associations are relevant.

    My own view is that ideological motivations (and the tone of political and ideological debate in the circles in which Mateen and the Cox shooter moved) are relevant, even if the person is crazy.
