Just dreadful; both Tory Party and Labor Party members expressed their outrage and sorrow, which was nice to see.

RIP, Jo - and courage for her family.

Another case where an unbalanced person with psychological problems slips over the edge, with tragic fatal results. It sounds as though the trigger may have been the fear & hate levels being generated around the referendum - destabilising & raising emotions, the kind of stirring up with which someone with psychological problems is ill equipped to cope.

Isn't this your part of the world, Darren? My sympathies for the loss of an MP from your area.
