Episode 149 - Nazi Rage: The Murder of MP Jo Cox

In June 2016 the chaos of Brexit reached fever pitch in the UK. One week before the referendum vote was set to take place, politician Jo Cox was savagely shot and stabbed to death outside a public library in the middle of the day. According to eyewitnesses, the assailant screamed “Britain first” as he attacked the defenceless MP. The man was soon revealed to be Thomas Mair, a dedicated neo-Nazi whose decades-long rage had seemingly been sparked into violence by Brexit.
