BORIS: ‘Getting Brexit done’ would honour Jo Cox

PA

BORIS Johnson has caused controversy by telling MPs in the Commons that “the best way to honour murdered MP Jo Cox would be to get Brexit done”.

The Prime Minister’s remark came after several MPs drew upon the memory of Ms Cox when urging him to curb his “violent” and “dangerous” language.

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan tweeted: “British politicians now using their murdered former colleague Jo Cox to wage their viciously tribal Brexit war. Parliament has reached a new low, on all sides. Disgraceful.” 

Mr Johnson said: “Of course there will be an attempt to try to obfuscate the effect of this Act, but it does – the Capitulation Act, or the Surrender Act or whatever you want to call it – it does, I’m sorry, but it greatly enfeebles, it greatly enfeebles this Government’s ability to negotiate.

“But what I will say is that the best way to honour the memory of Jo Cox and indeed the best to bring this country together would be, I think, to get Brexit done.”

Jo’s husband Tweeted that he felt “a bit sick at Jo’s name being used in this way” while the Commons heard MPs were reduced to tears and some left the parliamentary estate due to the “distress” caused.

    JO COX WAS FIRST MENTIONED BY A FEMAIL LABOR MP. BORIS’S REPLY SAYING THAT A CLEAN BREXIT WOULD HONOUR HER NAME AND BRING THE COUNTRY TOGETHER IS 110% TRUE! NOT OFFENSIVE AT ALL!
