The Nottingham Post report on an investigation into a social media post appearing on the Notts Casual Infidels Facebook page linking to the murder of Labour MP, Jo Cox.
The post appeared on the far right group’s Facebook page alongside a link to a Guardian article about the MP’s demise and read: “We knew it was only a matter of time before we take it to the next level. We have been mugged off for Far to (sic) long.”
The far right group’s page describes its purpose as to “tackle the Islamication of Great Britain”.
The post has since been deleted but Nottinghamshire Police have confirmed they are investigating the incident. A spokesperson for the police force said, “We are aware of social media posts commenting on the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox which appear to have been attributed to a group claiming to be from Nottinghamshire, and our enquiries with regard this social media activity are on-going.”
A Notts Casual Infidels spokesperson told the local paper the post was poorly worded and “came across wrong” saying “What is meant by the post is, the tensions between far left and far right have been so hostile and it is only a matter of time until a lose cannon with nothing to loose goes to far. (sic).”
