The cenotaph in Hull was once again the scene of vigil in remembrance of a victim of hate. That’s two in one week. This time the victim was Jo Cox, the Labour MP for Batley in West Yorkshire. The news came last Thursday that she had been stabbed and shot, and lay in a critical condition in hospital, where she later sadly passed away.
There is so much hate in the world, it has been such a dreadful week. however, characters like Jo show us that amongst all of the hate, there is still humanity. Jo was a volunteer for Oxfam, and had many friends in her constituency where she grew up, and was a fighter for those with no voice, which has recently included Syrian Refugees.
We have little doubt, that given the opportunity, she would have fought our corner in the LGBT community too. Jo, you will be very greatly missed

One thought on “We’re really going to miss you Jo

  1. Indeed she was Danny. Shortly before her death she called upon the government “to take further steps to end discrimination and bigotry against LGBT people in the UK and around the world”The need for that is now greater than ever. Steps towards achieving it would be a fitting memorial.
