Murder of Jo Cox
|Murder of Jo Cox|
|Official name||Murder of Jo Cox|
|Place||Market Street, Birstall, West Yorkshire|
On 16 June 2016, Jo Cox, the British Labour Party Member of Parliament for Batley and Spen, died after being shot and stabbed multiple times in Birstall, West Yorkshire. In September, a 52-year-old local man named Thomas Alexander Mair was found guilty of her murder and other offences connected to the killing, and was sentenced to life imprisonment with a whole life order.
Mair had singled out Cox, a "passionate defender" of the European Union and immigration, because he viewed her as "one of 'the collaborators' [and] a traitor" to white people. The incident was the first killing of a sitting British MP since the death of Conservative MP Ian Gow, who was assassinated by the Provisional Irish Republican Army in 1990, and the first death of a politician during an attack since county councillor Andrew Pennington was killed in 2000.
