The campaign to keep the United Kingdom in the European Union was
accused of exploiting the murder of Labour member of Parliament,
Jo Cox, for political gain ahead of Thursday's vote.
Cox was murdered June 16 in her constituency during a vicious attack
that shocked the British political system and suspended EU
referendum campaigning for two days.
The man charged with Cox's murder, 42-year-old Thomas Mair,
allegedly has connections to far-right and white nationalist
"Jo Cox was a friend of mine - and a
passionate voice in our campaign to remain in Europe. Her death
was an unimaginable tragedy - but we won't let her voice be
silenced," said Will Straw, campaign director of Britain
Stronger, in an email Monday, according to the political website
In an audio recording leaked to Guido
Fawkes, Will Straw detailed how the Remain campaign will
spend the final days of the referendum trying to convince the
British people to stick with the EU.
