I had serious doubts about posting this, because it would be wrong to give the people responsible any kind of encouragement.

But it would also be wrong to let them get away with it, by letting it go unremarked.

Anybody who thinks the kind of behaviour listed below is anything other than abhorrent should seek mental health assistance, in my opinion.

The far-right British National Party has posted leaflets to people living near the West Yorkshire town where Labour MP Jo Cox was killed, accusing her of taking “misguided action” by “helping Muslims”, the Commons has heard.

Labour’s Paula Sherriff said the “horrendous” leaflets, which had gone to her constituents in Dewsbury, said Mrs Cox was wrong to help people who may go on to join Islamic State, also known as Isis.

Ms Sherriff said: “Many members will be aware that my constituency sits right next door to Batley and Spen.

“Yesterday people in my constituency received a leaflet from the BNP saying Jo Cox took misguided action by helping Muslims in the country who may now go on to join Isis, alongside some other horrendous allegations.

“Then I have received a significant number of communications from constituents, one – a seven year-old Muslim girl – was told on Friday, I’ve removed the expletives from this for the purpose of this House, ‘it was the best day ever today, go home all of you’ to her and her family.”

    The right-wing fascist thugs believe they have cart blanch to assault and abuse those they don’t like. Johnson/Farage and co have let a very ugly and nasty genie out of the bottle

    So sad that the media and government have allowed the vote result to be taken over by racists; though no surprise as they need to ‘taint’ the decision and lay the blame elsewhere!

    It was never about deportation of refugees or ‘cleansing the country’; it was and IS about wresting control of our country away from non-elected officials who did not have its best interests at heart!
    You only had to watch the meeting after the vote to see how little unity there is in Europe!
    Now OUR job is to get MP’s into our government that DO have the best interests of our country above party and personal wealth!

    Right now we are in a vacuum with no Goverment and thanks to the Labour elite – No opposition either!
    Is it any wonder the ‘haters’ feel free to vent their bile!
    Where are the arrests? Race hate IS a crime, it’s on our statute book!

    These BNP Neanderthals are guilty of inciting racial hatred and hate crime. Why are they not in prison or is it possible to flush them all down the toilet?

    I wonder if Jo Cox would have been a Corbyn supporter if she had lived. Somehow I think not.

      Idle speculation – it’s easy to co-opt the dead into your group when they can’t speak for themselves.
