Tonight, a vigil in Westminster to pay respects to the MP

:00:10.:00:12.

We hear from her Labour colleague, who warned Westminster chiefs

:00:13.:00:19.

several times more security was needed for MPs.

:00:20.:00:22.

I don't think that the system is right at the moment to be able to

:00:23.:00:26.

I've said in terms, an MP will be shot, this

:00:27.:00:31.

Referendum campaigning continues to be suspended.

:00:32.:00:36.

We ask if this marks a turning point in the way democracy

:00:37.:00:39.

The Shadow Leader of the House has told Newsnight

:00:40.:00:53.

he repeatedly voiced grave concerns about the security of MPs

:00:54.:00:56.

Chris Bryant said he had even told Westminster security chiefs that

:00:57.:01:02.

an MP could get shot unless they were offered greater

:01:03.:01:04.

Jo Cox, the MP for Batley and Spen, was killed on her

:01:05.:01:09.

constituency doorstep in broad daylight yesterday.

:01:10.:01:14.

Tonight, West Yorkshire Police say links to right-wing

:01:15.:01:17.

extremism will form part of their investigation,

:01:18.:01:19.

and the man found at the scene of the crime remains

:01:20.:01:22.

There is plenty of speculation about the killer's mental

:01:23.:01:25.

health and motivation, but at this stage, very little fact.

:01:26.:01:29.

We'll hear from Chris Bryant in a moment,

:01:30.:01:31.

but our first report tonight comes from John Sweeney, in Batley.

:01:32.:01:41.

The mood is not just melancholic but anxious, too,

:01:42.:01:44.

as a West Yorkshire market town and the whole of British

:01:45.:01:48.

politics struggles to come to terms with the loss of an extraordinary

:01:49.:01:55.

You can see the impact that the murder of Jo Cox has had

:01:56.:02:03.

referendum campaign, which has been suspended,

:02:04.:02:07.

the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition have

:02:08.:02:09.

come to Batley to pay their respects.

:02:10.:02:14.

We should recognise that politics is about public service,

:02:15.:02:18.

They want to act in the national interest, to pursue the national

:02:19.:02:22.

interest, to do things for other people, to make the country

:02:23.:02:25.

Politicians disagree with each other.

:02:26.:02:28.

We often disregard what politicians say and we disregard each

:02:29.:02:31.

that is what it is about and that is what Jo showed it is all about.

:02:32.:02:38.

In her memory, we will not allow those people that spread hatred

:02:39.:02:41.

We will strengthen our democracy, strengthen our free speech.

:02:42.:02:45.

I'm deeply sorry and deeply sad at what has happened to her.

:02:46.:02:53.

The flag on the sports and social club is flying at half-mast.

:02:54.:02:57.

This woman had heard the shots that killed Jo yesterday.

:02:58.:03:04.

I heard loads of screaming and I thought someone had

:03:05.:03:09.

Then the next thing, gunshots and somebody screaming

:03:10.:03:15.

and all of Birstall were just running that way.

:03:16.:03:19.

I thought it were a random, somebody were getting shot, you know,

:03:20.:03:22.

Just a normal, down-to-earth Yorkshire girl, yeah, a

:03:23.:03:37.

She was from Heckmondwike, just down the road.

:03:38.:03:42.

My grandchildren talk about all the time.

:03:43.:03:44.

My grandchildren talk about her all the time.

:03:45.:03:47.

She visits the mosque that they attend.

:03:48.:03:49.

They just can't stop talking about her now.

:03:50.:03:53.

So what do we know about the prime suspect, Tommy Mair?

:03:54.:03:58.

Neighbours speak of a quiet loner, who reportedly had attended

:03:59.:04:01.

a daycare centre for people with mental health issues.

:04:02.:04:11.

The 52-year-old subscribe to the proapartheid South Africa Patriot

:04:12.:04:20.

magazine in the 1990s. -- in the 1980s.

:04:21.:04:23.

In 1999, he was linked to the American neo-Nazi group,

:04:24.:04:25.

National Alliance, buying gun manuals and instructions

:04:26.:04:27.

In all, Mair spent $620 on the Alliance.

:04:28.:04:31.

Newsnight understands that a UK distributor for

:04:32.:04:36.

National Alliance material was set up in 1990 in Leeds.

:04:37.:04:40.

On current evidence, Mair's interest in the far

:04:41.:04:46.

right petered out more than a decade ago.

:04:47.:04:48.

However, tonight, West Yorkshire Police's Acting Chief

:04:49.:04:50.

Constable, Dee Collins, said that Mair's far-right links are a

:04:51.:04:52.

None of this will bring much comfort to Jo's

:04:53.:04:58.

You are a politician. Do you feel safe?

:04:59.:05:06.

I'm about to go off and do two surgeries this afternoon,

:05:07.:05:10.

as politicians and Members of Parliament up and down

:05:11.:05:13.

the country will be doing, week in, week out.

:05:14.:05:15.

We sit down and people come and see us.

:05:16.:05:21.

They cry, they tell us their stories,

:05:22.:05:31.

they want a helping hand and a listening ear.

:05:32.:05:33.

They want someone to try and support them.

:05:34.:05:35.

That is a very precious part of our democratic life.

:05:36.:05:37.

And so this attack on Jo was also an attack on our

:05:38.:05:40.

democracy, because it is important that our elected representatives

:05:41.:05:42.

But is it going to change the way in which we do our job?

:05:43.:05:47.

No it isn't, because we are going to carry on because that is the best

:05:48.:05:50.

way in which we can honour the memory of Jo

:05:51.:05:53.

Tonight, people gathered across Britain to honour the memory of a

:05:54.:05:57.

public servant whose life was cut far too short.

:05:58.:06:06.

The daylight murder of an MP in her own constituency backyard

:06:07.:06:12.

has thrown the question of security sharply into focus.

:06:13.:06:14.

One man who has long warned that MPs were a vulnerable target was Chris

:06:15.:06:17.

He spoke to our political editor, Nick Watt,

:06:18.:06:20.

A lot of us have been arguing, I've been arguing in Parliament

:06:21.:06:24.

for quite some time, that of course it's important

:06:25.:06:27.

to make sure the Palace of Westminster itself is secure,

:06:28.:06:29.

but actually the real risk in many cases would be

:06:30.:06:32.

Whether they are in their surgery, or for that matter,

:06:33.:06:37.

And of course nobody wants to lose the precious jewel in the British

:06:38.:06:47.

democratic system which is, unlike an MP in Spain or whatever,

:06:48.:06:50.

you can go and see your MP, in many cases without even making

:06:51.:06:54.

And every single one of us wants to preserve that,

:06:55.:07:00.

but I think there needs to be a proper risk assessment

:07:01.:07:03.

I'm aware, especially since November last year,

:07:04.:07:08.

there have been a very large number of individual threats

:07:09.:07:12.

through from the stupid child on Twitter, through to much

:07:13.:07:15.

We need to have a proper assessment of that.

:07:16.:07:19.

A proper risk assessment in every constituency.

:07:20.:07:22.

You have been raising concerns for some months now about the threat

:07:23.:07:26.

to the security of MPs, not really at Westminster but

:07:27.:07:30.

There are 43 police forces, and even within police forces

:07:31.:07:37.

they have been reacting very, very differently according

:07:38.:07:39.

So sometimes two MPs in different constituencies next door to each

:07:40.:07:44.

other have been given conflicting advice.

:07:45.:07:49.

And for that matter, there is no coordination from the centre.

:07:50.:07:52.

There was meant to be, in January, every single MP

:07:53.:07:54.

was meant to be contacted by their borough commander to have

:07:55.:07:57.

I'd be surprised if a fifth of MPs had had contact

:07:58.:08:01.

I think some senior MPs, the House of Commons commission,

:08:02.:08:08.

you sit on that, it's a cross-party body,

:08:09.:08:11.

some members of the commission have issued some strong warnings

:08:12.:08:15.

They have been saying watch out, something could happen?

:08:16.:08:20.

I've said in terms, an MP will be shot, this will happen.

:08:21.:08:24.

And the truth is, we all know we can't guarantee that something

:08:25.:08:28.

like this won't happen again, but we need to make sure we've taken

:08:29.:08:31.

Not over-the-top precautions, just sensible precautions,

:08:32.:08:39.

to maintain that relationship with the MP with his or her

:08:40.:08:43.

constituents and maintain that in a secure way.

:08:44.:08:47.

How do you feel that you issued that very strong warning and you've now

:08:48.:08:57.

lost a dear friend and this action wasn't taken?

:08:58.:09:08.

It's very, very difficult for anybody when they lose

:09:09.:09:10.

a colleague, especially somebody like Jo.

:09:11.:09:15.

And it's always very, very difficult for us to get

:09:16.:09:20.

the policing arrangements right that fit every single circumstance.

:09:21.:09:24.

But I'm just aware that probably every MP

:09:25.:09:27.

in the land will have had, over the years, five,

:09:28.:09:32.

six, seven different forms of death threats,

:09:33.:09:37.

different forms of maybe attacks, and knowing which ones to take

:09:38.:09:43.

really, really seriously, which ones to ignore,

:09:44.:09:48.

that is a really difficult thing to do.

:09:49.:09:52.

I think, I wish, I hope now that all the security services,

:09:53.:09:56.

all the 43 police services in the land will come

:09:57.:10:01.

together and say, you know, we are going to make sure

:10:02.:10:04.

When you raised these concerns about the security of MPs,

:10:05.:10:09.

was this because you obviously have personal experience of very

:10:10.:10:12.

aggressive social media attacks, or was it more about specific events

:10:13.:10:20.

in particular that controversial vote we had

:10:21.:10:22.

There was a lot of stuff immediately after Syria.

:10:23.:10:26.

To be honest, I don't know an MP who hasn't ended up with a stalker

:10:27.:10:30.

in prison or somebody lobbing things through the office window,

:10:31.:10:34.

But it has been particularly bad in the last few months,

:10:35.:10:41.

I would hate the idea that there be a young person

:10:42.:10:49.

of real talent out there, who is thinking of going

:10:50.:10:52.

into politics, who would be frightened of doing so.

:10:53.:10:55.

Of course, you have got to have thick skin in politics, I get that.

:10:56.:11:01.

But often you're making a decision, not only for yourself,

:11:02.:11:04.

but also for your family and for the people who work for you.

:11:05.:11:09.

So, sometimes people might think we are being overly cautious,

:11:10.:11:14.

but it's not really about us, it is about a wider set of people.

:11:15.:11:17.

Obviously, you have concerns about the slow response,

:11:18.:11:20.

but on this cross-party commission you sit with other MPs,

:11:21.:11:23.

Do you think the government has been aware of these concerns

:11:24.:11:28.

I know that my opposite number in the government shares

:11:29.:11:32.

It may be that government or the Home Office needs to play

:11:33.:11:41.

a specific role in making sure there is a proper coordination

:11:42.:11:45.

of risk assessments for all the MPs in the land.

:11:46.:11:48.

And that, for instance, when it is decided every borough

:11:49.:11:52.

commander should get in touch with all the MPs on their patch,

:11:53.:11:55.

Because otherwise there is a real danger that things will

:11:56.:12:00.

MP Chris Bryant speaking to us from his home, there.

:12:01.:12:13.

Referendum campaigning has been suspended these past few days.

:12:14.:12:15.

Many are welcoming the relief the silence has brought.

:12:16.:12:17.

The rhetoric on both sides, many would agree,

:12:18.:12:19.

got to a fever pitch - threat, exaggeration,

:12:20.:12:22.

The question is, has that gone for good now,

:12:23.:12:26.

Chris Cook reports from the south coast on whether Jo Cox's death

:12:27.:12:33.

will mark a turning point in the campaign

:12:34.:12:37.

and in the way we view our Members of Parliament.

:12:38.:12:39.

We have been here in Bognor for the past few days,

:12:40.:12:42.

interviewing people for a film on the EU referendum.

:12:43.:12:44.

But even before the terrible events in Yorkshire,

:12:45.:12:47.

we were really struck by the venom that was felt by the people

:12:48.:12:51.

we interviewed about our MPs and the Westminster elite.

:12:52.:12:55.

So today, we gathered together some people from the town to talk

:12:56.:12:59.

about whether this terrible event might actually change some

:13:00.:13:04.

of the ways that people talk about their MPs and how

:13:05.:13:06.

Everyone was, of course, appalled by the murder and sincerely

:13:07.:13:12.

I think people forget the saddest part of this is her two

:13:13.:13:19.

children and her husband, and her parents.

:13:20.:13:24.

They praised Ms Cox but when asked what words they would use

:13:25.:13:27.

about the average MP, they tended to be quite critical.

:13:28.:13:30.

Is it possible in your experience that politicians are generally quite

:13:31.:13:41.

good, they are better than we give them credit

:13:42.:13:43.

for when you actually come across them, and they

:13:44.:13:45.

Certainly, some politicians, I mean, we see on local social media,

:13:46.:13:52.

some local, I would not say politicians but councillors

:13:53.:13:56.

particularly will get quite a hard time, when I know that

:13:57.:13:59.

in the background, they are doing a lot of good work

:14:00.:14:02.

and they are actually trying their best to get

:14:03.:14:04.

One of the things we hear a lot is, "I don't like politicians

:14:05.:14:10.

but we're lucky here, we have got good ones in my local

:14:11.:14:13.

If everyone thinks that, they might actually be quite good.

:14:14.:14:18.

Everyone thinks their local politicians are quite good and maybe

:14:19.:14:22.

But it is when you get up to Parliament and things like that,

:14:23.:14:26.

I think generally, local MPs try to do their best for the local

:14:27.:14:32.

Unfortunately, they are wrapped up by the system and it is the system

:14:33.:14:36.

People can be elected with all the aspirations

:14:37.:14:41.

of wanting to make change, but they get into the system

:14:42.:14:43.

and find that sometimes, I've found it myself,

:14:44.:14:46.

Chris, do you think this terrible news from Yorkshire,

:14:47.:14:52.

do you think it will change the way people think about

:14:53.:14:55.

I'm not sure that it will, to be honest.

:14:56.:15:01.

It depends, again, it's going to depend on how it is spun,

:15:02.:15:04.

I think, how the media and politicians actually use it.

:15:05.:15:08.

It is horrible to say but it will get used.

:15:09.:15:11.

But I don't see that it is going to change politics particularly.

:15:12.:15:15.

I don't think it is going to change it at all.

:15:16.:15:20.

I think everybody is going to step back and think, but beyond that,

:15:21.:15:23.

I do feel that the country needs to reflect on that,

:15:24.:15:27.

on politicians and the role they play in the community.

:15:28.:15:30.

Do you think it's possible that it might change the way people vote

:15:31.:15:34.

No? I don't think so.

:15:35.:15:39.

As I say, it depends on the analysis of the reasons for the attack.

:15:40.:15:45.

But I can see that people will be using it to use the racism angle,

:15:46.:15:50.

the immigration angle, in their arguments.

:15:51.:15:54.

Both the Leave campaign and the In campaign certainly need

:15:55.:16:00.

to reflect on what has happened and how they conduct themselves

:16:01.:16:04.

in the next few days, running up to the election.

:16:05.:16:06.

I would hope the politicians will take note of it

:16:07.:16:09.

and that they will be more thoughtful about their comments

:16:10.:16:13.

The conclusion of that conversation matches pretty closely

:16:14.:16:20.

with what we have heard from other local people in the past day.

:16:21.:16:24.

Yes, this was an unspeakable tragedy but no, they don't expect the public

:16:25.:16:28.

to change their views of MPs as a result and no,

:16:29.:16:31.

they don't expect politics to change bring much, either.

:16:32.:16:36.

they don't expect politics to change very much, either.

:16:37.:16:42.

Let's talk through some of the last 24 hours

:16:43.:16:45.

with Danny Finkelstein, Jo Berry, whose father Sir Anthony Berry,

:16:46.:16:49.

the MP, was killed by an IRA bomb and Douglas Murray of The Spectator.

:16:50.:16:55.

Thank you all very much for coming. John, you have a personal respect if

:16:56.:17:06.

on this, your father was killed by terrorism. I wonder from the ashes

:17:07.:17:13.

of tragedy, you feel positive change can come from a moment like this? I

:17:14.:17:23.

feel very deeply, the words of Jo's Husband, we need to unite against

:17:24.:17:28.

hatred and that has been my journey since 1984, to bring compassion and

:17:29.:17:32.

empathy, something positive out of it. To not carry on with the cycle

:17:33.:17:39.

of revenge. This is a time we need to act in a way which is empathy and

:17:40.:17:44.

understanding. I have just come from sharing with hat-trick McGee, 50

:17:45.:17:49.

young people. We have worked together. We have different beliefs,

:17:50.:17:55.

different political beliefs, but we can listen to each other with

:17:56.:17:59.

respect, despite what has happened between us. You describe your

:18:00.:18:04.

positive attitude, do you think that came back to you, did something

:18:05.:18:07.

shift in terms of how you felt politics was being done? Is it too

:18:08.:18:13.

big a question for terrorism perhaps? We need to bring a change

:18:14.:18:19.

in politics. Danny, do you think this will mark a changing point? It

:18:20.:18:24.

is a heart breaking thing to say this, but no, I don't really think

:18:25.:18:30.

it will. Jo Cox were such an inspiring person to everyone who

:18:31.:18:33.

knew her and everyone who is learning of her example, that he

:18:34.:18:36.

would hope it would teach more of the values of compassion and

:18:37.:18:40.

understanding and also commitment that she showed. Do I think it is

:18:41.:18:45.

really going to change political debates? Sadly, I think the

:18:46.:18:51.

experience is, these news stories and events make a huge impact.

:18:52.:18:55.

People think at the time, got to do better and then it will slide. My

:18:56.:19:04.

cool analysis would be, in time, it won't make the impact it deserves to

:19:05.:19:08.

make. Any event that reminds us to behave well towards each other, to

:19:09.:19:12.

engage in civilised discussion at an intelligent level, it is always

:19:13.:19:16.

worth clinging onto, especially when it is something soap tragic and one

:19:17.:19:22.

is desperate of something but to come out of something so awful.

:19:23.:19:28.

Also, the Milly Dowell a moment or the Alan Kirtley moment, the picture

:19:29.:19:34.

of the little Kurdish boy, do you have a sense we are at a shift in

:19:35.:19:41.

point, or conduct will change as a result of this? I agree with Danny.

:19:42.:19:48.

Things will pause. There is a pause at the moment and an absolutely

:19:49.:19:52.

necessary reflection. This shouldn't be anybody involved in politics in

:19:53.:19:57.

the country, who isn't thinking about that. I don't think anybody in

:19:58.:20:01.

the country isn't thinking about that now, reflect on, thinking about

:20:02.:20:07.

the politics we have, some of the behaviour, whether it is right or

:20:08.:20:11.

not. This is necessary to have that pause. Also that we pause to

:20:12.:20:19.

remember her work. But Danny says, things do move on and it is

:20:20.:20:26.

important, we cannot give an individual gunmen, a murderer, a

:20:27.:20:31.

terrorist of whatever ideological insanity they have, we cannot did

:20:32.:20:36.

somebody like that the right to decide how we have our democracy and

:20:37.:20:41.

how we debate and... One of your colleagues at the Spectator wrote

:20:42.:20:45.

this week, we should cancel, not just the campaigning but the

:20:46.:20:51.

referendum? I have some sympathy for that because it is hard to see how

:20:52.:20:56.

things do go back to normal so fast. How will it happen? Did you notice

:20:57.:21:04.

that, Jo, did you notice all the pledges slip away now and I'm trying

:21:05.:21:11.

to hold people to their sort of, the highest level of conduct and it

:21:12.:21:17.

doesn't work for very long? I think change is possible. If enough people

:21:18.:21:22.

believe in it, I believe in people power. Enough people say, I am no

:21:23.:21:29.

longer going to blame other people for my problems, I am going to be a

:21:30.:21:33.

positive change maker, Unite and work together. We need to come

:21:34.:21:40.

together and say, no more hate it, we are connected with our brothers

:21:41.:21:44.

and sisters around the world, it is time to come together, I really

:21:45.:21:48.

believe that. We have seen outpouring from around the world,

:21:49.:21:53.

Danny. One of the voices who entered this was Angela Merkel, who paid her

:21:54.:21:56.

respects and then made reference to the Brexit campaign being part of

:21:57.:22:03.

this. Do you think it was in bad taste and an over step of the line?

:22:04.:22:10.

I don't think anybody can say it was. Not on the basis of anything we

:22:11.:22:14.

know, nor on the basis of probability. People don't go out and

:22:15.:22:18.

do that because of their view on the European Union. This person sounds

:22:19.:22:23.

very much like he was mentally ill as well as having extreme, political

:22:24.:22:28.

ideas. It doesn't add up to a contribution to the referendum

:22:29.:22:31.

campaign. Douglas was right, we should not treat it in that way

:22:32.:22:35.

because it will distort the rest of the debate on this very important

:22:36.:22:41.

democratic question and seek to somebody the right to interrupt our

:22:42.:22:45.

democracy and we don't want to do that. A lot of people have talked

:22:46.:22:49.

about the cessation or the pause, but there will be some who read into

:22:50.:22:54.

this pause today, a certain underlying politicisation and say

:22:55.:23:09.

any pause may promote or benefit the Remain camp because it shuts down

:23:10.:23:16.

the leave voice. It was very politicising from Angela Merkel and

:23:17.:23:19.

it is a shame it happened at this moment. The referendum has about 50%

:23:20.:23:28.

of the country on one side and 50% on the other. Neither side is evil,

:23:29.:23:34.

we are all discussing an important democratic issue about our future.

:23:35.:23:40.

But we cannot allow, from what ever side you are on what you are

:23:41.:23:45.

undecided about, we cannot allow somebody who is insane or driven by

:23:46.:23:49.

an insane hatred, to move one way or the other. It would be the worst

:23:50.:23:56.

thing imaginable for our democracy if assassins' vetoes were allowed to

:23:57.:24:01.

rule. Where do we think we will hear the tone of the campaign now? Will

:24:02.:24:06.

we lose the squabble from this, or the heat from this? Any capable

:24:07.:24:15.

politician will want to reflect the mood of the moment and any decent

:24:16.:24:19.

human being will want to do that also. On both sides there are both

:24:20.:24:22.

types of those people. Whatever you might think about the long-term

:24:23.:24:27.

impact of this, the short-term impact certainly will be, people

:24:28.:24:31.

will make every attempt to take the heat down and make civilised and

:24:32.:24:37.

balanced argument with each other. But political issues are important,

:24:38.:24:42.

people feel passionately about them and you cannot take politics out of

:24:43.:24:49.

politics. And you shouldn't. And Jo Cox was passionate about things

:24:50.:24:51.

herself and she wouldn't want that to happen either. There is a passion

:24:52.:24:56.

which will naturally come through as we get closer to Thursday, Jo? Yes,

:24:57.:25:03.

and I think the day after will be interesting. There are risks who

:25:04.:25:07.

have developed across community is through social media and it is time

:25:08.:25:11.

to heal that and build bridges. I think it will be losing situation.

:25:12.:25:16.

There has been a lot of harm done by of the hatred and this time it will

:25:17.:25:22.

be time to heal it, build bridges and move on to gather. Thank you all

:25:23.:25:24.

very much. So what does happen

:25:25.:25:27.

to the campaign now? Nick Watt joins us from Cardiff

:25:28.:25:29.

again, Nick what do we expect There is an important moment tonight

:25:30.:25:39.

Kos the Times has endorsed a vote to remain in the European Union. The

:25:40.:25:44.

times is an important part of our national discourse because it's not

:25:45.:25:48.

all plain sailing for the Remain side. It has told the leaving side

:25:49.:25:55.

it has been economical with its claims. Also a thunderous assault on

:25:56.:26:00.

the European Union as it is, saying if David Cameron does when this

:26:01.:26:05.

referendum, he has got to lead a big crusade for reform within the

:26:06.:26:10.

European Union. The two campaigns remain suspended for the moment, but

:26:11.:26:15.

there will be a significant moment tomorrow when International Monetary

:26:16.:26:18.

publishes its annual health check on the UK economy and I think it won't

:26:19.:26:24.

be any great surprise to anyone if we see it warns again of the dangers

:26:25.:26:28.

of an exit from the European Union. I think the vote Leave side will

:26:29.:26:36.

find it difficult not to respond. But I have picked up within the

:26:37.:26:41.

Remain campaign, whether it is appropriate, because both sides have

:26:42.:26:45.

agreed the campaign will resume on Sunday morning. One figure I spoke

:26:46.:26:49.

to said the campaigns shouldn't get going until Parliament has had a

:26:50.:26:53.

chance, in that emergency recall session on Monday, to pay tribute to

:26:54.:26:58.

Jo Cox in the House of Commons and then afterwards there is going to be

:26:59.:27:02.

a service at Saint Margaret's Church in Westminster. The content as well

:27:03.:27:08.

as the conduct, will it look different for the last week? There

:27:09.:27:13.

will be a very different tone. Both camps are saying they will be very,

:27:14.:27:17.

very careful to tone down the aggression, as the UK takes a very

:27:18.:27:23.

good look at how it does its politics after the murder of Jo Cox.

:27:24.:27:28.

But there will also be a political change on the Remain side. They are

:27:29.:27:32.

very nervous after the success of votes Leave in the last couple of

:27:33.:27:36.

weeks in pushing up the salience of immigration. I understand it when

:27:37.:27:42.

George Osborne appears on ITV on Sunday morning, even hearing talking

:27:43.:27:46.

about the abstract figures if we lead the EU, it will be a ?4300 hit

:27:47.:27:52.

to the average household by 2030, he will talk about the here and there

:27:53.:27:57.

now. He will say, imagine what a Brexit will mean. If you look at the

:27:58.:28:02.

small print of the recent monetary policy committee monthly minutes, it

:28:03.:28:06.

says 35% of businesses asked taking a hit, car sales are down and

:28:07.:28:11.

sterling is down. But he will be talking on Sunday morning after the

:28:12.:28:16.

first of three final polls from your gut. They looking at them carefully

:28:17.:28:25.

because they gave the Scottish referendum a wobble.

:28:26.:28:29.

Just before we go, you can guess what the papers are saying. They all

:28:30.:28:36.

have a photograph of Jo Cox on the front. The Times has come out but

:28:37.:28:42.

Remain and explaining why it is best for Britain, but this newspaper is

:28:43.:28:48.

for Leave. It said the MP's killer is linked to far right terrorists

:28:49.:28:51.

and the police are poised to charge the suspect in the killing of Jo

:28:52.:28:57.

Cox. The Guardian has a picture of the tributes left in Parliament

:28:58.:29:02.

Square and Jonathan Friedman writes, if you inject enough poison into our

:29:03.:29:07.

politics, somebody will get sick. The mail is going mental health and

:29:08.:29:12.

say the police are probing the killer's care. He appeared deeply

:29:13.:29:19.

disturbed 24 hours before. The FT weekend says parties are united in

:29:20.:29:26.

grief the Jo Cox as the police investigate right-wing links. And

:29:27.:29:29.

Philip Green wants to protect pensions while encouraging his staff

:29:30.:29:38.

to trade a steady retirement income. That is where really be this week

:29:39.:29:44.

from all of us here, good night. We are far more united and have far

:29:45.:29:47.

more in common than that which divides us.

:29:48.:29:57.

After a week of wet weather to the country, things are looking quieter

:29:58.:30:04.

for the weekend. On Saturday, largely dry day and the best of the

:30:05.:30:07.

sunshine towards the north and the north-west. In Northern Ireland,

:30:08.:30:14.

sunny spells, 17 or 18 degrees with light winds. Pleasant day and across

Scotland. Lots
