Latest updates: health secretary sets out NHS recovery plan; ministerial changes to be revealed this afternoon
This is from Kim Leadbeater, the Labour MP whose sister Jo Cox was murdered by a rightwing terrorist, suggesting that Boris Johnsonâ€™s Savile smear was linked to what happened to Keir Starmer yesterday.
Brendan Cox, Joâ€™s widower, told the Today programme this morning that he also believed there was a connection. He said:
I think that itâ€™s very hard to draw a direct link and to say that in some ways, the prime minister is directly responsible for what happened. I think the people that are directly responsible for what happened yesterday were the people that did it.
However, itâ€™s also true that if you inject poison into politics, that has a whole set of unintended consequences that people will react to in different ways and at times that can lead over into intimidation, it can lead over to violence, it can lead over into extremism.
