Very much breaking news with very little details although it has just been reported that David Amess has died after a stabbing at his constituency surgery.

Sadly reminiscent of the Jo Cox murder.

Condolences to his wife, kids, family & friends. Awful.

Utterly horrifying.
Such a devastating time for his friends and family members.
Looks like the bad apples of twitter couldn't wait until after the funeral to begin the insults and point the finger of blame.

I've seen it elsewhere with the "Tory Scum" Some people are shameless. This can only lead to MPs being less accessible to the people.

RIP.
One does have to wonder if it was a random attack or if it was politically motivated.

Absolutely horrifying.

No doubt it’ll be some delinquent with a sob story that should have been locked up long ago.

Well there are seemingly plenty of disgruntled 'ist' groups to pick from these days. Far-leftist, far-rightist, radical environmentalist, white supremacist, black supremacist, Islamist, anti-vax/anti-lockdown-ist, dissident Irish nationalist, heck probably even dissident Scottish nationalist at this point.

Disgusting. I hope they hang the Vermin that did this.

A genuine shame as he appeared to be an actually genuine conservative and a decent person to boot.

Was it vaccine-laws related?


My guess this was an anti vaxxer/lockdown sceptic.

Check his voting record. Anti-gay marriage, anti-abortion and didn't care if you or I starved to death.

Pretty disgusting for any MP to be murdered, regardless of their views. At a constituency surgery too, exactly the sort of places we want to see MPs at.

Oh come off it. We all know which one of two ways it’s going. Either terror related suspect known to police, or, U.K. delinquent known to police, both with history of crime. It’s all well and good mourning the completely innocent MP who’s lost his life, but stopping it from happening again should be key in point straight away.

Today is not the right day for this.
Please don't go down the toxic route that so many twitter users have. :crossedf:
