Labour MP Slammed For Blaming Jo Cox Death On Brexit

Tributes Paid To Murdered Labour MP Jo Cox
Labour politicians and left wing media pundits have been attracting widespread criticism from the public for seeking to link the murder of fellow Labour MP Jo Cox to the Brexit campaign. Neil Coyle, the MP for Bermondsey and Old Southwark, provoked an outcry on Twitter when, during a tribute to Ms. Cox on Newsnight, he alluded to the Leave campaign and the referendum on European Union (EU) membership. “I think that the kind of nonsense that they inspire online from anonymous accounts, and actually the core content of the poster they launched today, look at what they are putting out and I just think that they are very dangerous, and they risk inspiring extremist elements on the hard right in this country,” he told the programme’s presenter. But viewers called his comments “low” and “opportunist,” saying he should be “ashamed”.
