It’s right that Jo Cox was a great campaigner for important causes. I just hope the media remembers that when ‘normal’ political news coverage returns and judgements are being made about what stories to feature.
It’s right that Jo Cox was a fantastically hard worker in her constituency. I just hope the media remembers that when the next story about MP ‘holidays’ comes round when recess times are set.
It’s right to be cautious about judging the motives of her killer and what triggered the action. I just hope the media remember that the next time when someone with a Muslim-sounding name is in the frame.
It’s right to bemoan the vitriol thrown at people just because they’ve decide to go into public service. I just hope the media remember that the next time they take a look at the comments threads on their own websites.
