Colleagues, we meet today in heartbreaking sadness, but also in heartfelt solidarity.>> Jo Cox didn't just believe in loving her neighbor, she believed in loving her neighbor's neighbor. She saw a world of neighbors. She believed every life counted equally.>> Jo Cox was a voice of compassion whose irrepressible spirit and boundless energy lit up the lives of all who knew her and saved the lives of many she never ever met.
>> So it now falls on all of our shoulders. The woman I met in the coffee shop in Batley, Jo's friends, MPs, all of us, to carry on Jo's work to combat and guard against hatred, intolerance and injustice, to serve others with dignity and with love, and that is the best way that we can remember Jo and all that she stood for.
But last, let me say this. Batley and Spen will go on to elect a new MP but no one can replace a mother.
