St Jo of Cox

(Before It's News)

The killing of Jo Cox was a tragedy for her two young children. I feel deeply for them. To be deprived of their mother at such a young age is awful.

However many other children have been deprived of their mother by murderers. They all deserve our deepest sympathy not just the death of  an MP highlighted by the media.

She chose a political career. She was a political careerist, a Mrs Kinnock spad. All careers come with risks  one knows when one makes the career choice. Asssassination is a well known risk politicians run for thousands of year.

What troubles me is the implication that MPs are more important than anyone else. They should be treated exactly the same as any one else, no better, no worse.

Thomas Mair the killer had no police record. He was a loner. I do not understand why the judge could describe him as a terrorist. If you examined the bookshelves of the liberal elite you might well find extreme left wing terrorist literature that advocates violent protest. Mair committed a heinous murder but deserves the same justice as is meted out to other brutal killers, no more no less.

Jo Cox no more deserves a halo than Airey Neave, Ian Gow, Jack Kennedy or any other politician killed for their beliefs.
