Crass UK MEP Supports Tommy Robinson Moments After Jo Cox Tribute

Ex-UKIP MEP Janice Atkinson has sparked anger after rising to speak about the far-right ex-English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson, directly after a tribute to murdered Labour MP Jo Cox in the European Parliament today (14th June 2018).

All MEPs stood and applauded after a  tribute to Ms Cox was delivered by senior German MEP Udo Bullman.

 

Labour MEP Alex Mayer who was in the European Parliament chamber said:

“We all stood up in solidarity to applaud and honour Jo’s memory, and then Janice Atkinson stood up in support of a far right thug. It’s sickening.”
