Nigel Farage’s attack on Jo Cox’s widower is a new low. Enough

28 Dec

No more pussyfooting around: Nigel Farage and his associates have poisoned our country’s political culture, and it’s time to push back. Their offensive – in every sense of the word – has been so swift, so devastating, that we risk normalising it.Let’s take a moment to absorb their latest intervention. In June this year, Jo Cox, a Labour MP, was murdered by Thomas Mair, a fascist, white supremacist terrorist. As he stabbed and shot her, he yelled “Death to traitors, freedom for Britain!” This was a political act: the use of violence to achieve political ends. The individual who politicised Jo’s death was the terrorist who killed her.If anybody has a right to speak out about the dangers of hatred and extremism in modern Britain, it is Jo’s bereaved husband, Brendan.
