Remain campaign chief Will Straw accused of 'exploiting' Jo Cox murder

This shows the depths the political elite will sink to when their places on the Brussels gravy train are threatened.

The director of the Remain campaign has been accused of seeking to attack the Leave camp by “exploiting” the murder of Jo Cox.
A recording of Will Straw coaching pro-EU campaigners in a conference call and referring to the MP’s brutal murder has sparked uproar on social media.
Mr Straw, who says he was a close friend of Mrs Cox, says the Remain camp ought to criticise Brexit campaigners for “stirring division and resentment” in the wake of her death.

The pro-EU campaign has been OTT and slightly sinister, a surprise even to many who are EU critics.

I agree, well OTT

The Leave campaign record has been stuck on immigration for weeks. The real debate has been stifled and overlooked.

Eric Edmond said...

Agreed Stephen but if that's what is winning Labour votes then keep hammering it.

Stephen Harness said...

Not my politics. Prefer the UK has been in the EU for 43 years and my home town looks like a third world country. The EU is not working.

Eric Edmond said...

Agreed but in Chipping in the Marsh there are only clean cut Brits so what's your problem?
