Jo Cox was killed because of her strong political views, her widower Brendan has told the BBC. The late Labour MP would want people to stand up for her beliefs “in death as much as she did in life”, he told political editor Laura Kuenssberg. He said his late wife, who would have been 42 tomorrow, was concerned about “coarsening” of the referendum debate.
He also spoke about the need to support their children to “make sure something good comes out of this”. The MP for Batley and Spen died after she was shot and stabbed in Birstall, West Yorkshire, on Thursday.
