BNP posts Jo Cox ‘Muslim’ slur through neighbours’ letterboxes as racist attacks soar


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.

Mrs Cox was shot and stabbed in Birstall on June 16, a week before the EU referendum.


Former BNP member Jack Buckby is to contest the by-election in the Batley and Spen constituency Mrs Cox represented, despite commitments from the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Ukip not to field a candidate.

Home Office Minister Karen Bradley committed to meeting Ms Sherriff to discuss the “utterly unacceptable” leaflets and to look at what “specific action” can be taken against the BNP.

During Ms Bradley’s statement on hate crime, 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.

“And I am continuing to receive a number of similar incidents.

Polish shopkeeper in Leeds taken to hospital after ‘racially aggravated incident’


POLICE ARE investigating a racially aggravated incident involving a Leeds shopkeeper.



Reports on social media said the Polish man had been attacked and told to “go back to his country”, with some saying the floor was covered in blood.

West Yorkshire Police confirmed they were investigating comments made towards the shopkeeper, but said he had not been physically attacked.

Inspector Jon Brady, who heads neighbourhood policing in north-west Leeds, said they were called to Bramley Shopping Centre at 10.18am yesterday (June 28) after a male shopkeeper was taken ill.

“Officers established that a short time beforehand a man had made comments to the victim in his shop,” he said.

“The victim, who has a pre-existing heart condition, was taken to Leeds General Infirmary by ambulance but is due to be released later today after being monitored. We are satisfied that no physical assault took place. We are treating the incident as a racially-aggravated public order offence and our investigation is ongoing.”

Leeds votes ‘remain’ in EU ballot by tiniest of margins - as rest of Yorkshire says ‘bye bye Brussels’

Leeds votes ‘remain’ in EU ballot by tiniest of margins - as rest of Yorkshire says ‘bye bye Brussels’


Yorkshire voters have piled on the misery for the Remain camp - with huge swathes of the region favouring a Brexit.


Leeds voted to remain in the EU by the tiniest of margins - just 2,389 votes.

But Wakefield opted out by a massive margin, 116,165 votes to 58,877, and a 71.2 per cent turnout.

The Yorkshire and Humber region as a whole also voted out.

In total, 2.7m votes were cast in the region, with a turnout of just under 70 per cent.

There were a total of 1,580,937 votes for Leave and 1,158,298 for remain, a significant difference of 422,639 votes.

There was a sombre tone this morning from key ‘remain’ figures at Leeds Arena, the headquarters for the wider Yorkshire and Humber counts, as it received a drubbing in much of the wider county and country.

With the final round of results still due, Britain looked to be heading for an exit from the European Union,

Leeds was the counting base for 21 local authorities in the region.

The final count for Yorkshire and the Humber will now be fed into the national total.

With a total electorate in the region of almost four million, some commentators had suggested that the Yorkshire and Humber vote could be the clincher for the whole referendum result.

However in the end it was all about the Brexit surge,

Man accused of murdering MP Jo Cox makes Old Bailey appearance

The man accused of murdering Labour MP Jo Cox has been remanded in custody after appearing before a senior judge at the Old Bailey.
Mrs Cox, 41, died after being shot and stabbed in the street outside her constituency surgery in Birstall, last Thursday.
Thomas Mair, 52, from Lowood Lane, Birstall, is charged with murder, grievous bodily harm, possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence and possession of an offensive weapon.
At an initial hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Saturday, Mair refused to give his name, instead saying he was called "Death to traitors, freedom for Britain".
When asked to confirm he was Thomas Mair at the Old Bailey today, he replied: "Yes, I am."
He made his first crown court appearance before Mr Justice Sweeney via video link from top security Belmarsh prison.
Grey-bearded Mair sat with his arms folded beside a prison officer. He wore beige trousers and a white long-sleeved t-shirt.
There was no application for bail and he was remanded in custody.

‘We must unite to fight against the hatred that killed my Jo’: Husband’s emotional tribute to Jo Cox

‘We must unite to fight against the hatred that killed my Jo’: Husband’s emotional tribute to Jo Cox


The husband of West Yorkshire MP Jo Cox, who has died after being shot and stabbed in Birstall, has led tributes to the mother of his children - and urged the whole country to “unite to fight against the hatred that killed her”.

Tributes have flooded in from the public and across the political world for the Batley and Spen MP - described by colleagues as a “rising star” of Westminster - who was shot and killed in her Birstall constituency earlier today.

The 41-year-old mum of two was rushed to hospital in Leeds after being shot and stabbed on the steps of Birstall library, in the heart of the quiet West Yorkshire market town, at just before 1pm.

Police announced just after 5pm that she had died from her injuries.

As news of Mrs Cox’s killing sent shockwaves across the country and the political community, campaigning for next week’s EU referendum was suspended.

A flood of tributes on social media and elsewhere honoured the “wonderful”, “beautiful” and “brilliant” young politician, who described herself as “mum, proud Yorkshire lass, Labour MP for Batley and Spen” on her social media account.

Mrs Cox’s husband Brendan said in an emotional statement, issued just hours after her death, that he and his wife’s friends would “work every moment of our lives...to fight against the hate that killed Jo”.

“Today is the beginning of a new chapter in our lives,” he said.

“More difficult, more painful, less joyful, less full of love.

“I and Jo’s friends and family are going to work every moment of our lives to love and nurture our kids and to fight against the hate that killed Jo.

Jam-packed Yorkshire Festival kicks off in Leeds today


CULTURE vultures can enjoy an 18-day celebration of dance, music and art as the Yorkshire Festival kicks off in Leeds today.


More than 900 artists from 22 countries will contribute to performances across the county.

The first event in the jam-packed calendar is right here in Leeds and will see celebrities bringing 10 of the city’s iconic statues to life.

Talking Statues features the voices of Brian Blessed, Vic Reeves and Gemma Whelan from Game of Thrones, who have all recorded voice-overs for statues such as The Black Prince and the lions outside Leeds Town Hall.

Passersby can hear the stories by swiping their smart phones on specially-installed plaques.

Yorkshire Festival’s artistic director Matt Burman said: “We walk past these statues every day but by bringing them to life with some well-known voices, not only will locals and visitors to the city be entertained, they will also learn something about the historical figures who inspired each of these works of art.”

He added: “The next 18 days will see a fantastic mix of artists, performers, makers and musicians, both home-grown here in Yorkshire and guests from further afield, showcase some of the best creative talent from around the world.

“We hope local people and visitors to our fine county will make the most of having this cultural celebration on their doorstep.”
