This incident has shocked British lawmakers and the public from all walks of life. Five years ago a similar incident had occurred where a far-right activist had murdered a Labour MP Jo Cox before the referendum that eventually influenced the UK’s decision to leave Europe.

David Amess had never created or was part of any controversies.

Nadhim Zahawi, Education Secretary, took to Twitter to express his grief over the incident. He tweeted:
