Jo Cox assassination exactly mirrors Swedish politician’s pre-EU referendum murder psyop 13 years ago

Swedish politician’s death 13 years ago mirrors murder of UK lawmaker


 (TAP – Both Jo Cox and Anna Lindh were supporters of the Palestinian cause.)

The fatal attack on a pro-European British lawmaker just a week ahead of the key Brexit referendum vote has shaken politicians and voters across the U.K.

While this is the first time in nearly a quarter of a century that a U.K. politician has been murdered, the case bears startling similarities to the assassination 13 years ago in Sweden of pro-EU Anna Lindh.

Days before Sweden would vote on whether to join the euro in 2003, a 46-year-old lead campaigner for Sweden’s to adopt the euro was stabbed while shopping in a Stockholm department store. She had been shopping for clothes for a euro zone debate scheduled that evening. The next day, on September 11, Social Democratic foreign minister Lindh died from her injuries.

Both sides of the Swedish political campaign suspended their activities following the news, with TV ads campaigns cancelled and billboard and print media ads withdrawn.

On the following Sunday, Swedes rejected proposals to adopt the common currency.

Solemn tone

Back in Britain, the death of Labour member of parliament (MP) Jo Cox has set a similarly solemn tone around the otherwise raucous Brexit debate.

The 41-year-old was shot in the small town of Birstall in the north of England while on her way to meet with constituents in a nearby library Thursday afternoon.

According to reports of unconfirmed eyewitness accounts, the attacker shouted ‘Britain first,’ potentially referencing a right-wing, anti-immigration and eurosceptic group in the U.K.. It has led to speculation that the politician’s murder may be linked to the upcoming June 23rd referendum.

Media reports have identified the suspect as a 52-year-old local man Tommy Mair, who is said to have lived alone in a nearby estate.

A full investigation is underway by authorities to determine the motives of the suspect, who is believed to have acted alone.

Though it’s unclear whether there was any political intent behind Cox’s murder, both sides of the EU referendum have since suspended campaign activities.

The political pull-back is in stark contrast to a debate that was otherwise reaching fever pitch less than a week before Brits headed to the polls.

Just on Wednesday, Cox’s husband and children were on a boat on the River Thames in support of the ‘Remain’ camp, as Brexit supporters took to their own flotilla. Both sides trading insults over loud speakers.

    One Labour MP’s death is a tragedy while over (at least) one million Iraqi deaths as a direct result of the Blair Labour government’s criminal complicity in this genuine holocaust is clearly nothing but an irritating statistic. Whole Iraqi families wiped out of existence in many cases.
    Clearly this Jo Cox incident (fake event/false flag/whatever would be a good time to bury any bad news by the one party with three names LibLabConspirators.

    A LABOUR aide who advised the Government to use the attack on the World Trade Centre to distract attention from “bad” news stories was fighting for her job last night.

    Jo Moore, who works for Stephen Byers, the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions, was widely condemned for showing spin at its worst when her news management memo was leaked.

    Miss Moore’s memo, written at 2.55pm on September 11, when millions of people were transfixed by the terrible television images of the terrorist attack, said: “It is now a very good day to get out anything we want to bury. Councillors expenses?”

    “After her resignation Jo Moore retrained to become a teacher in 2003.”

    Schoolchildren need role models like Jo Moore.
