An eyewitness said: ‘He was fighting with her and wrestling with her and then the gun went off twice and then she fell between two cars and I came and saw her bleeding on the floor.’

The shocking incident took place near the town’s library where the 41-year-old politician held advice surgeries.

Those who saw the shocking incident said the mother-of-two was left ‘bleeding on the pavement’.

She was airlifted to Leeds General hospital where she is now said to be in a ‘serious condition’.

Hichem Ben-Abdallah, the owner of a nearby restaurant, said he saw a ‘river of people’ come screaming down the road after the attack.

He told The Yorkshire Post: ‘A lady was down on the floor. The man pulled a gun – it was a makeshift gun, not like something you see on television.

‘After the second shot I turned and ran. He walked away very calmly, down the steps. Nobody stopped him – he had a gun.’

Daniel Blyth, 38, a company director from Birstall, told the paper he saw seven police cars ‘racing up’ the road to the scene.

A police spokesman said: ‘At 12.53 today, police were called to a report of an incident on Market Street, Birstall, where a woman in her 40s had suffered serious injuries and is in a critical condition.

‘A man in his late 40s to early 50s nearby also suffered slight injuries.

The spokesman continued: ‘Armed officers attended and a 52-year-old man was arrested in the area. There are no further details at present. Police presence in the area has been increased as a reassurance to the community.’

Prime Minister ‏David Cameron tweeted: ‘Very concerned about reports Jo Cox has been injured. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jo and her family.’

    I think she was DOA after being airlifted to hospital. So much for a safe Labour (or any?) seat?
    Again, this incident should not be taken at immediate face value. The alleged perpetrator is said to have shouted “Britain first!” which incidentally is a controlled opposition front job led by former BNP guys who are vehemently opposed to the EU and very pro BRexit.

    ‘Her indoors’ is telling me that she is/was Chair of the ‘Syria Parliamentary Group UK.

    With just a week to go to the UK’s Vote of the Century, this could very well be a Black Ops job to try and swing things back in the Remain Camp’s favour. RIP Jo Cox, whatever your politics were. You were a small fish in a shark infested swamp. She had worked with all manner of flotsam in Brussels (Glenys Kinnock) as well as with Gordon Brown and even Oxfam. Karma at work?

      There appears to be a whiff of sulphur in the air ……

      Whatever the circumstances of her demise Cox will be canonized by the usual media whores.

      From the report above it may well be she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time yet we already see the usual media prostitutes latching onto and focusing onto the alleged “Britain first ” statement.

      In 24 hrs time the story will be spun and the media will sing in lockstep.

      • sovereigntea says:

        Of course “Britainfirst” the fake patriots are run by the same gang as zionist loon Pamala Geller never far away from the next false flag and resultant media storm.

      • Aldous says:

        Hi sovereigntea, apparently Jo Cox was shot more than once with a ‘homemade gun’ and knifed multiple times as well. Does this seem desperately OTT and gratuitously violence or what? The professional TV images of the ‘suspect’ being apprehended at a virtual non-event Labour MP ‘surgery’ may yet be the ‘smoking gun’ that outs and busts this latest outrage as a staged killing by TPTB.

        I think Ian Gow was the last MP (Tory) to be ‘assassinated’ and Jo Cox could well be the first Labour MP ever to meet a similar fate.

        One thing is for sure, the ‘fable of events’ coming out of the Usual Lie Factories such as BBC and Sky will be nothing to do with Inconvenient Truth.

        Hi Aldous

        I quite agree that the whole scenario is so deliciously theatrical and OTT … perfect stuff to fill the front pages and distract the public from the forthcoming vote.

        Of course in the coming days if we see the culprit outed as a brexit supporting internet radicalised lone wolf then we have the answer and probably the motive.

  2. Aldous says:

    I wonder if they’ll try to pin this one on that ‘oh so nasty Russia’ and/or Russian football fans?

  3. Aldous says:

    Is this the dead giveaway that this event was staged?


    The husband of MP Jo Cox has urged people to “fight against the hatred that killed her” in the wake of her death.

    In a powerful(sic) statement, her husband Brendan said she had a “zest for life that would exhaust most people”.

    He said her death marked a “less joyful” new chapter in her family’s lives.

    I must remember that one if I survive my nest of vipers wife.
