While the fatal shooting of British MP Jo Cox rocked the country’s political establishment, it is now being rumored that she was assassinated to prevent a Brexit vote.


The disturbing rumor has already been circulated adequately. Due to this, many have initiated to believe there is a conspiracy to secure a sympathy vote to stay within the EU. According to Armstrong Economics, at this point, people are referring to the usual tool of assassination, which is often used to attain political objectives.

Jo Cox was a 41-year-old supporter of the campaign for Britain to stay inside the EU. On Thursday, she was shot and stabbed multiple times in her constituency town of Birstall, near Leeds in northern England.

Apparently, the issue of the conspiracy theory seems truthful. According to CNN, Jo Cox had become intrinsically worried that politics was becoming extreme, right before her death. She believed that the things were becoming very much “tribal and unthinking,” said her widower Brendan Cox.

“She was very worried that the language was coarsening and people were driven to take more extreme positions,” he told the reporters.

Her widower also stated that he believes his wife was killed because of what she believed in. According to Brendan, she had strong political views, which killed her.

“She died because of them. She would want to stand up for those in death as she did in life,” he said.

However, there are clear indications that the EU will collapse if Brexit is allowed. The major question would be how the government would perform a cover-up if there is a conspiracy out in the open.

The most important part about the killing is the confession made by the assassin. Tommy Mair, the man who allegedly killed MP Cox, had made a brief appearance in court on Saturday.

“Death to traitors, freedom for Britain,” Mair said at court.
