Horrible Murder

A British Member of Parliament, Jo Cox, has passed away after being shot and stabbed. She was in her costituency Batley and Spen in Northern England when attacked. The police has arrested a man for the deed.

It is as yet unclear why the murder was committed.

Both campaign organisations for the options in next week's referendum has suspended their campaigns.

Any murder is horrible and tragic. In some cases, however, the murdered person has such a position in society that her passing is not just a personal tragedy for herself, her family and friends, but a tragedy for the whole country. An attack on a politician, as Mrs Cox, is like an attack on democracy itself, as well as a murder. We feel with the family and friends of Mrs Cox, and her dogs, if she had any.

We hope we will soon hear why the murder was committed.
