Truly shocking. This, along with the human tragedy was an attack on democracy BBCPolitics Said nothing of Rayner inciting hatred of Tory MPs. Absolutely devastating and tragic.

It looks like a terrorist attack Why we letting these terrorist in to this country. Somebody answer us🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤦🏻 Religion of peace Starmer - WE SEE YOU. Your Deputy literally called Mr Amess and his colleagues this the other week: “We cannot get any worse than a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, absolute vile … banana republic, vile, nasty, Etonian … piece of scum“. SACK RAYNER NOW.
