Brendan Cox quotes

May 20 2017 - Extremism

Doing so in such a coordinated way will, we hope, send a powerful message that whatever our political disagreements, we really do hold more in common and show a united front against hatred and extremism in all its forms. Elections are huge moments of national importance and deserve to be taken seriously. But we also need to get a better balance. We spend way too much time fixated on the areas we disagree with each other and need to create more moments where we come together as a country.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - British elections 2017

A year on from my wife’s death, and just a week after the end of another divisive general election campaign, The Great Get Together will be just what Britain needs. Since my wife, the MP Jo Cox, was murdered last June, I have put my energies into two things. First, and by far the most important, giving our kids all the love and comfort possible, however much we are all hurting. I can’t bring back their mum, but I can do my best to fill their lives with joy and adventure. The second thing that keeps me going is fighting the hatred and extremism that killed her.feedback

The first thing we need to do is remember that this is a story about the people who didn't come home yesterday, the impact it will have on their families and the thousands of lives touched by the individual tragedies. What helped me in the weeks after, not the first few days because you're so numb, but in the weeks after was that sense of public support, those thousands of acts of kindness, the sense that the person you lost meant something not just to you but to others. I think one of the things you need to be careful about is giving notoriety to the person that did it.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Islam

What the terrorist would like to happen is for us to fall apart and start blaming groups of people, to say that in some way this is Muslim or Islam as a whole. We have to remember that the person who did this is no more representative of British Muslims than the person who killed Jo is representative of people that are from Yorkshire. I'm going to do whatever I can to remember the names of the victims like PC Palmer and not the name of the person.feedback
