David Amess MP
David Amess MP

This is utterly awful news. My thoughts, and I know those of all Labour members and residents across South East Cambridgeshire, will be with Sir David Amess‘ family and friends.

He was at work doing that most fundamental of roles elected representatives fulfil – speaking to his constituents and trying to help them at his constituency surgery.

This senseless violence is a tragedy but it should never stop the political process. Today we all redouble our commitment to expose intimidation and threats to our democracy.

On a personal level when I was an MEP for his constituency we clearly had very big differences on policies, but I always found him courteous, dedicated and someone with a real sense of service.

This a heartbreaking day for Sir David’s family and a truly dark day for British politics.”
