Mr. Ben Abdallah said, when asked if he thought the murder would impact the vote next Thursday: “I would like to warn people… not to fall, and… not to be abusive, because I don’t know anybody else who wants Jo [Cox] to be used as a token for political ego”.
He added: “It is immoral… why the question is being asked about this? Do you reckon she’s been killed for that?
“In my opinion, and it is an early stage to say, we need to keep our minds open. And all options open as far as the investigation is concerned. Not to leave any stone unturned”.
Earlier today Breitbart London columnist James Delingpole wrote on how the Remain campaign is exploiting the death of Mrs. Cox.
“Is there any depth to which you will not stoop in order somehow to snatch victory in this EU referendum?” he wrote, following a Breitbart London expose of how Remain campaigners were tweeting the blame at the Brexit camp just minutes after the incident was first reported.
Additionally, the European press seized on the issue, calling Brexit a “campaign of blood”. An EU Commissioner tweeted that Mrs. Cox was “murdered for her dedication to European democracy and humanity”, and the Guardian’s Polly Toynbee and theSpectator’s Alex Massie both attempted to lay the blame at the feet of UKIP leader Nigel Farage for the killing.
The headline of the Daily Star newspaper called Mr. Mair a “Brexit gunman”.
