More In Common: How an act designed to drive a community apart, brought it together


When Jo Cox became the first sitting MP to be murdered in her constituency for more than 25 years – in the days just before the EU Referendum in June 2016 – the country was shocked to its core. Imagine, then, the impact on Jo’s immediate family and community.

Join Kim Leadbetter, Jo’s sister, Rev. Mark Umpleby, her local parish priest, and Fakhara Rehman, part of the More in Common group that was birthed in the days after her death, as they talk about the effects of Jo’s loss and legacy – in Jo’s constituency of Batley and Spen and more widely – for The Common Good.
