I did not know Jo Cox, the MP murdered whilst doing constituency duties. I am not a fan of party politicians but I have to lift my cynicism when talking of the constituency work which the vast majority of MPs do diligently even if they find it difficult dealing with someone who is not a supporter.
I listened to the House of Commons tributes and without exception found them moving, relevant and appropriate without political grandstanding. I was fortunate that after the Commons tributes, the BBC played recorded coverage of the Lords tributes.
One contribution seemed to stand out and because Parliamentary Copyright encourages us to make use of parliamentary material, I can republish the tribute so that a few more people can stumble across it, appreciate it and ponder its message.
It was said that Jo Cox “would want us to be talking about the policies as much as the personality.” This tribute did just that.
