Potential for vote on Britain First to be outlawed

The Home Secretary is being asked to allow the House of Commons to vote on whether far-right group Britain First should be blacklisted as a terrorist organisation, reports say this afternoon.

The suggestion has been put forward by Labour MP Louise Haigh. If the Commons were to go through with the decision and vote in favour, it would make it a criminal offence to belong to or show support for the group.

The move follows questions over the group after Thomas Mair was heard to shout “Britain First” when he murdered Jo Cox. It is still unclear whether he was referring to the party or making a statement.

New speeding device for Colne Valley

Funding for a new device to curb speeding in Colne Valley has been approved by Kirklees.

The speed device, which detects vehicles’ speeds and warns drivers to slow down, will be funded by Kirklees Rural District Committee.

Clr Nicola Turner (Lib Dem) has been long campaigning for the new device. She said: “By funding the project, the Council is demonstrating its commitment to improving road safety. The additional speed device will mean that each of the sites will be visited once a year, rather than once every two or three years, as it is currently.”

Bishop of Huddersfield calls for tolerance after Jo's murder

The Bishop of Huddersfield has released a statement this morning calling for tolerance among all faiths and none following the sentencing of Jo Cox’s killer.

The Rt Revd Jonathan Gibbs said: “The murder of Jo Cox MP was a very dark day in the life of our nation.

“The trial of Thomas Mair and today’s verdict have demonstrated the vital importance of justice and the rule of law which are at the heart of our nation. “We pay tribute to Jo’s wonderful example of service and to the bravery which she demonstrated right to the end of her life.

“We also pay tribute to the dignity and courage of her family and we will stand with them and continue to hold them in our prayers in the months and years ahead. Jo stood for the very best qualities which we look for in all our politicians.

“She believed firmly that ‘what unites us is greater than what divides us’ - a principle she lived by throughout her career.
“We stand with those of all faiths and none across West Yorkshire in affirming what Jo stood for and we will honour her memory by working together for a more peaceful, tolerant and united world.”
