Sir Keir Starmer pays tribute to Sir David Amess

David Amess was a Newham boy born in Plaistow and educated I believe in St Bonaventure School. Today I also remembered the stabbing of East Ham MP Stephen Timms and the killing of Jo Cox MP.  We had a number of political campaigning sessions planned for tomorrow which have been rightly cancelled. 

"Sir Keir Starmer has paid tribute to murdered MP Sir David Amess. The 69-year-old, who represented Southend West, was stabbed multiple times during a constituency surgery in Leigh-on-Sea on Friday. "Sir David had a profound sense of public duty. He was highly respected and much liked across the Houses of Parliament on all sides," the Labour Leader said as he paid tribute to Mr Amess. "Violence, intimidation and threats will never prevail over the tireless work of public servants like David, simply doing his job." Read more here:"

The anonymous hater who tries to post right wing hate content on this blog (and ironically makes cheap political points about the death of Sir David)should note that his comments are simply deleted "unread"
