    He's told the court his name is "Death to traitors, freedom for Britain".

    Is anybody willing to hazard a guess as to his views on the forthcoming referendum, and how they might relate to his motives in allegedly murdering Jo Cox? Or is it still too early to speculate?

      Sterotyping Brexiters as xenophobic or racist is incredibly stupid. If the polls are right, half of the electorate circa 23 million people would fall into this category. It's divisive and stiring up resentment.

      Will going further into the EU help stop attacks by the mentally ill?
      I haven't seen any studies on correlation between the two.
      Therefore this should be put to bed and the debate should return to the real issues without Project Fear and abuse.

        Zardoz, this thread is about a person who was attacked and killed by another person. While several have tried to turn it into another referendum thread, that is NOT what it is here for.
        This is not a "they call us names" or "they say" thread.
        It's not somewhere for doctored images of newspaper headlines.
        It's not for people trying to find hatred in someone else's comments.
        The victim was not some random Internet forum user claiming that half the country disagree with them, and that every single one of those people who disagrees thinks exactly the same thing. Or that the individual poster represents every single person who might vote the same way as them.
        No.

        The victim here was a mother of two.

          I think Cojack was talking about both sides.

            I'm still waiting for Mr Corybns opinions on terrorism !

            The Labour leader reportedly put his name to a letter urging the Irish people not to surrender Dessie Ellis in 1990.

            Mr Corbyn warned that Ellis, who was later elected to the Dail to represent Sinn Fein, could not be given a fair hearing in the UK because he was being tried for "politically motivated offences".

                  actually I read WTFH's post and frankly he is right. You kiddies play in another thread.

                  This is not one to score points in.

                    In your opinion he is right.
                    The previous thread about the murder of Jo Cox was taken over by those with very strong opinions on the referendum and quickly became distasteful and disrespectful.
                    Looks like attempts to keep this thread civil and non-partisan are failing.

                      Do you not find it quite astonishing that, one way or the other, some people are trying to "leverage" the actions of this person for a political purpose? How much can you seriously read into it? Think about the alternate scenario for a minute where, god forbid, some EU citizen carried out a heinous act in the UK leading up to the vote. What could we read into that? Would you be arguing about their motives and the relevance for this vote? Personally, I find the spin in the Fail (focus on his mental health only) and the Guardian (trying to link it to the wider Brexit campaign in the "conditional" sense, leaving that dead cat lying on the table) equally disgusting. Don't you agree?
