We at w4mp are shocked to learn that Jo Cox, MP for Batley and Spen has died from her injuries after having been attacked outside her advice surgery this afternoon. We offer our sincere condolences to her family and friends at this awful time.
This is a sad reminder that we all need to be alert and aware of our security, and we strongly recommend that you take a few minutes to read our post here: https://w4mp.org/very-important-information-about-your-safety-and-security/
and also the security advice on the Parliamentary intranet:
