    Yes I remember that day very well (was Wales v England in euro 2016). I felt physically sick about it.

    Let's hope he survives and recovers fully

    Something like this has been inevitable sadly.
    Nothing has been learned from the horrific murder of Jo Cox.

    Politics has just become more and more sectarian with both sides firmly entrenched.

    Conservative MP Sir David Amess stabbed

    He was holding a constituency surgery at a church in Leigh in Sea when a man walked in and stabbed him.

    One report said he was fighting for his life.

    Absolutely shocking.

    Edit

    Sorry didn't see that Life on Mars had already posted this.

    David Amess was a big animal rights campaigner, decent MP.

    Very depressing news. We are going in the wrong direction in so many ways.

    The way of politics, the "democratic way" going out and meeting people on their doorsteps sadly might soon become a thing of the past.

    Awfully sad and depressing.

    RIP Sir David

    Absolutely crazy, how can someone do this? Such terribly sad news that he’s died.

    One of the best things about politicians in this country is, other than the ones at the very top, they’re easily accessible to the community. This sort of thing will just make everything more difficult.

    If you want to become moderately wealthy and aren't exceptionally smart, it is still a bloody good option.

    What a mess, twitter desperate to profile the killer before we know any details which is depressing but not unexpected. Agree with some of the above about the accessibility of politicians, our previous local MP, Mark Prisk (shifted out by the current loons) was committed to working for local people no matter their allegiance and it sounds from reports as if David Amess was of a similar build. If I was an MP right now I would be a lot less keen to meet the public.

    It also incentivises politicians to be grey and not utter any controversial words or hold any strong opinions because they will be the ones who have a target on their backs. This is a very bad thing.

    Sickening.

    This is the fourth major stabbing incident involving MPs holding public surgeries since 2010 - with (now) two MPs and an MPs assistant dead.

    Apart from the personal tragedy and grief for family and friends, this will push politicians further away from the public, behind screens and protected by bodyguards or police.
