Jo Cox Murder Suspect Tommy Mair Repeatedly Hurled Racist Abuse at Asian Cab Drivers
The suspect in the murder of MP Jo Cox was so abusive towards Asians working at a local taxi company that the drivers demanded he be blacklisted, it has been alleged.
A man, believed to be Tommy Mair, was arrested by police on suspicion of shooting and stabbing the MP for Batley and Spen in a daylight attack on 16 June. Eyewitnesses described hearing the suspect shout “Britain first” or “put Britain first” during the attack.
As David Cameron, Jeremy Corbyn and John Bercow made their way to Birstall to pay respect to the 41-year-old mother of two, a local taxi company claimed drivers were unwilling to pick Mair up in their vehicles because they were subjected to racial abuse.
