Earlier today we reported the UK media misrepresentation of the tragic death of Jo Cox. Since then countless people have deleted their embarrassing tweets.
Now the EU commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos has sought to leverage her death to impact the outcome of the UK European Union Referendum.
He claims “Jo Cox murdered for her dedication to European democracy and humanity. Extremism divides and nourishes hatred. Solidarity with her beloved.”
Nobody knows why this tragedy occurred, no doubt in due course we will. This is not the time for a European Union commissioner to make such comments with no established basis in truth.
