A sad day. RIP MP Sir David Amess

Sir David Anthony Andrew Amess, British politician. A member of the Conservative Party, he served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Basildon from 1983 to 1997 and for Southend West from 1997 to 2021. A knight of the realm.

It is a sad day to lose such a gentleman, under such egregious circumstances and to be honest preventable. May he rest in peace.

PS: A crime is a crime, no matter who it is done against, specially one that is fatal need be condemned the highest. Someone’s circumstances might be part of an explanation of their crime but it is not an excuse for it. So do not disrespect the victim as a consequence of it.
