Jo Cox Killer Had 'Mental Health Problems,' 'Wasn't Political,' Didn't Shout 'Britain First'

These are the dirty tricks the establishment will pull not to lose power.

The killer of Jo Cox was reportedly known to be mentally ill and taking meds, those who knew him said he was apolitical, and at least one witnesses quoted as saying the killer shouted "Britain First" says he said nothing of the sort.

Nonetheless, the media and pro-EU politicians are running with the "Britain First assassinates anti-Brexit politician" narrative and pinning the blame for the murder "on Nigel Farage."

Via Breitbart:
Suspected killer may have had "mental health problems", in receipt of "psychotherapy and medication"

The suspected killer of MP Jo Cox has been named locally as Thomas Mair, who has featured in a number of local news reports in recent years as a mentally ill man who claimed to be benefitting from local voluntary opportunities.

An archived 2010 article about a country park which welcomed Mr. Mair from the Pathways Day Centre for adults with mental health problems to volunteer in building a "faith garden" reported Mr. Mair as saying: "I can honestly say it has done me more good than all the psychotherapy and medication in the world.

"Many people who suffer from mental illness are socially isolated and disconnected from society, feelings of worthlessness are also common mainly caused by long-term unemployment.

"All these problems are alleviated by doing voluntary work.

"Getting out of the house and meeting new people is a good thing, but more important in my view is doing physically demanding and useful labour.

"When you have finished there is a feeling of achievement which is emotionally rewarding and psychologically fulfilling.

"For people for whom full-time, paid employment is not possible for a variety of reasons, voluntary work offers a socially positive and therapeutic alternative."

A 2011 article from Batley News about the same initiative also featured a picture of Mr. Mair (right).

Update 1845 — Local: Suspected killer had no political views 

Thomas Mair, who has been named locally as the man arrested on suspicion of killing Labour MP Jo Cox was not politically minded, according to locals who knew him reported by the Daily Telegraph. A neighbour said he wasn't a member of a political party and had never expressed interest in the EU referendum.

62-year-old Kathleen Cooke told the paper: "I am really shocked. He walked past my house this morning and said hello like he always does… He is just a quiet bloke who keeps himself to himself.

"He is very helpful and he helps local people with their gardens. There is one neighbour who is a bit frail and he keeps her garden tidy. He has helped me cut my hedge a couple of times.

"He has lived here for 40 years and has never been in any trouble and has never caused any trouble. He sometimes used to shout at the local kids if they played too near his house but that is fairly normal.

"I don't think he belonged to any political party and I never heard him express any views about Europe or anything like that. To us, he was just Tommy, a local bloke we all knew

Update 1830 -- Widely quoted local admits he didn't hear "Britain First" 

Local restaurant owner Hicham Ben Abdallah, widely quoted across the media as having claimed Mr. Mair shouted, "Britain First" has told Breitbart London "No, no. I did not hear that".

Update 17:45 -- Eyewitness on "Britain First" -- "Never heard that" 

The pro-EU propagandists have already shaped the narrative:

The scam-artist hoaxers are acting like Nigel Farage personally put a bullet in this woman:


The hysterical headline from The Daily Star:

Jo Cox's friend and eyewitness says it's "immoral" for her death to be used as a referendum "token":

Despite the establishment shamelessly exploiting her death for propaganda purposes, it's not working. A poll released today shows British support for the EU has FALLEN in the wake of her murder.
