Today the radio news announced that the main political parties are to suspend campaigning in respect to MP Jo Cox, who was murdered by a right wing extremist one year ago.

Jo Cox, assassinated one year ago today.

My question to the media is this. Why do you use the word terrorist for extremists from within the Muslim communities, but not for right wingers who would either use violence or support those with their views that do?

It is the same think, those who would kill people for political ends, and those who support them are terrorists.

It is a time to reflect that terrorism comes from a variety of sources, and to stop castigating one part of our society because of it.
