#DailyMail is trending on twitter as those on the left, take time of from their crap degrees and pointless public sector jobs to rant about its coverage of the Brexit debacle of yesterday. The Mail, a loathsome rag, justifiably points out that the referendum promised that if we voted out we would leave. Now it seems as if that might not happen because of what three old men say. The Mail is right, the nation, or at least those who believed what we read on the ballot paper and in democracy, is outraged.

I reflect on the killing of the Dallas Cops and the two innocent young black men gunned down by the Police and on the death of Jo Cox MP: what it says about race relations in the USA, how we too often judge contemporary events outside the context of history, what it says about how we treat those with mental health issues on both sides of the pond and finally on the double standard of the hateful liberal mind.

Most of the national press is now reporting responsibly on the sad death of Jo Cox MP yesterday. Any life cut short is a tragedy. A murder of any sort leaves one feeling appalled. Ms Cox was obviously a principled and pleasant woman and one only imagine how her husband and kids feel. But the reaction of far too many supporters of the "in" campaign does need comment for it was disgusting. I reported earlier of how I received one tweet saying that as a pro-Brexit writer I had blood on my hands, as you can see HERE.
That article also showed how the sad death of Ms Cox was being used by the lefty online pressure group Avraaz to push its supporters to vote to stay in the EU. But worse was to come and it came despite the fact that, by 6.30 PM yesterday, it had become clear that the killer of Jo Cox was a loner with no political affiliations at all and who had a long history of serious mental illness.

Every murder is a shocking event. The political world is shocked today by the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox. She seems by all accounts to have been a pleasant and well meaning woman and naturaly all our thoughts will be with the woman's husband and children.
