    Jo Cox, Member of Parliament for Batley and Spen, was murdered yesterday:

    She was by all accounts a great politician, truly caring for her constituents. Some witness accounts allege that her murderer shouted "put Britain first", possibly linking them to the far-right Britain First movement.

    My thoughts go out to her husband and two children :(

    It's been reported that the murderer bought several books from a US neo-nazi group, including a manual explaining how to build homemade guns and explosives.

    Why are there some people who have so stubbornly failed to respond to decades of social conditioning to the effect that NAZI = BAD? Centuries of warfare, suffering, and genocide, and people still think that European nationalism is in any way a good thing?
