Our thoughts are with the family of Jo Cox

Following the death of Birstall Labour MP Jo Cox we are suspending campaigning activity for today. Our thoughts are with her family at this very difficult time.


We will be resuming our formal campaigning on Saturday as planned. If anyone has their own leaflets to deliver and can only do it tomorrow then that is fine, she was a campaigning MP and from her husbands statement I think continuing to work in her memory is fitting. If there are further changes I will of course email you and post on our Facebook page and here. The reasons for the attack are as yet unclear but I ask that we stand together and do not let this sort of behaviour hamper our free speech and democratic activities.

In Solidarity,

Allison Gardner

EU Referendum Campaign Coordinator
