    British MP assassinated in public


    Recently elected MP Jo Cox was shot and stabbed to death
    in a public square today by a lone assassin.

    "Mrs Cox, 41, is the first sitting MP to be killed since 1990, when
    Ian Gow was the last in a string of politicians to die at the hands
    of Northern Irish terror groups.

    The man taken into custody was arrested in Market Street, not
    far from Birstall Library where Mrs Cox was holding a constituency
    surgery. He has been named locally as Tommy Mair."

    According to one witness :

    "When I looked round there's a man stood there in his 50s with
    a white baseball cap on and a jacket with a gun, an old fashioned
    looking gun in his hand," he said.

    "He shot this lady once and then he shot her again, he fell to the
    floor, leant over shot her once more in the face area.

    "Somebody tried to grab him, wrestling with him and then he
    wielded a knife, like a hunting knife, just started lunging at her
    with a knife half a dozen times. People were screaming and
    running from the area."

    The killer was reported to be shouting something repeatedly
    during the attack. Some witnesses said it sounded like
    "Britain for the British" ... a slogan of groups pushing for
    the UKs exit from the EU - the vote for which was soon to
    come up.

    Cox was against the UK leaving the EU ... but she was
    the new girl, not particularly influential as of yet.

    If this was what Mair was shouting then this case
    becomes rather suspicious. First of all, it appeared
    the vote was already slightly in favor of the "Brexit",
    so all supporters of the measure had to do was sit
    and wait for it to happen. Secondly, by attacking a
    new, good looking, MP there may be a "sympathy vote"
    on the part of some which will tilt the decision the other
    way. Thus, it was totally illogical for any Brexit supporter
    to do what was done. Something vaguely "un-British"
    about the whole thing too.

    So ... was Mr. Mair a total lunatic ... or did someone put
    him up to this, someone who would lose a lot of money
    or power in the event the UK broke ties with the EU ???

    Looks like a fake story, everyone knows you can not
    just get shot three times on a British street.
