Batley and Spen MP Jo Cox dies after shooting in Birstall.

In a democracy it always has to be a huge tragedy when an elected person is attacked and in this case sadly killed. Whether she was of your political persuasion or not the fact remains that she had been elected to serve her constituents in Parliament.

Anyone who attacks an elected person is attacking our democracy.

Of course it has happened before and sadly it may happen again but we must ensure that our democratic processes are robust enough to cope with such attacks.

RIP Jo Cox MP.
