This is a dreadful event and my heart goes out to Jo Cox's husband, Brendan, their two children, her family and friends. All of us are united in our deep sadness at the loss of one of our brightest and most popular Westminster colleagues.>> Jo was such a lively, bright, bubbly person.
A very infectious sense of humor and engagement with things. Always very positive. Really committed to helping the most marginalized, the poorest families and children around the world, and that's always been the Jo I know.>> She'd only been in parliament for one year. She'd already made a big impression, was hugely liked and respected across the House.
I know people always say that kind of thing on these occasions but in her case it was absolutely true. The best tribute that this room, this city and this country can give to the memory of Jo Cox is to renew our shared commitment, whatever our differences, to promote the common good in the United Kingdom and the world.
