The man charged with the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox has appeared in court.
Thomas Mair gave his name as “Death to traitors, independence for Britain” when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
Mrs Cox, 41, stabbed and was shot to death in Birstall, West Yorkshire.
Mr Mair, 52, can also be charged with GBH, possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence and possession of an offensive weapon.
The defendant, who was wearing a grey tracksuit, failed to reply when asked to confirm his address and date of birth and refused to give his name that was correct.
He was remanded in custody and is expected to appear at the Old Bailey.
When she was killed Mrs Cox, who was married with two kids, was about to attend a constituency operation.
