The Jo Cox Foundation, founded after the murder of the Batley MP, has called on all UK political parties to agree to a code of conduct to help protect MPs and tone down their language.
Their response came after Boris Jonson, the prime minister was accused of using language in a commons debate that could “incite violence” against MPs.
He went on to blithely suggest that the best way to honour the murdered Brexiteer, MP Jo Cox, who had wanted to remain in the EU, was to “get Brexit done”.
During the loud commons debate, Mr Johnson dismissed a complaint by one Labour MP that his rhetoric risked provoking attacks on politicians as “humbug”.
Speaking on the BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Mr Cox urged all sides to tone down their inflammatory language.
