When Thomas Mair shot and stabbed MP Jo Cox the whole nation was repulsed and regardless of political allegiance all were shocked and saddened at the murder of this MP. Mair killed the MP for Batley and Spen in Yorkshire because he opposed her views but regardless of whether you agree with someone or not you do not kill them in such a vile way and apparently Cox told others to clear out of the way as Mair came for her.

Brendan Cox her husband now left to bring up their children on his own said he was glad to have been married to such a wonderful woman and humanitarian. A charity single has been released for a charity set up in her name with many stars taking part like KT Tunstall, Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs and other stars plus MP's singing and playing on the track.

What the Jo Cox charity is about or who it is supposed to help I cannot say at this time but the song being performed is the Rolling Stones song "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and the band have waived their fee for the single who currently have a Blues album doing well in the UK charts their first release for 10 years.

The government have also waived their fee just like they did years ago when the Band Aid single topped the charts Christmas 1984 which ironically enough had a female Prime Minister in charge and the Conservative party in government as we do now. I am rather cynical of charity singles but I feel sure this charity single done in Jo Cox's name is well intended.
