Supposed perpetrator of Jo Cox/Murder
Depicted by corporate media as a "lone nut" killer of Jo Cox in the run up to the UK's EU referendum.

Thomas "Tommy" Mair is a man with a history of mental health issues[1] who was arrested on 16 June 2016 and charged with the murder of Jo Cox in Birstall, West Yorkshire.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9]


Jon Rappoport suggests that Mair may have been a tool in a psyop run in order to motivate people to vote against a Brexit,[1] an assassination paralleled by the 2003 killing of Anna Lindh by a "lone nut" in the run up to the Swedish vote about EU membership.

The Brexit connection has been assisted by media reports that on 18 June 2016, when Mair appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court he gave his name as "Death to traitors, freedom for Britain" and did not reply when asked to confirm his address and date of birth.[10]


Special police units who searched Mair's house are reported to have found samples of Nazi regalia and far-right literature.[11]

Springbok Club

Tommy Mair has been identified as a supporter of the Springbok Club, an organisation that has in the past defended the white supremacist regime in apartheid-era South Africa who publish S.A Patriot magazine and Springbok Cyber Newsletter. The latest edition of the Springbok Club newsletter addresses the EU Referendum, outlining the case for Brexit:

“On Thursday 23rd June 2016 all British voters will have the opportunity to vote on the future of their country. They can vote either to remain entrapped in the artificial and retrograde European Union, or to regain their sovereign independence.”

National Alliance

According to the Jewish Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a group that monitors hate crimes and racist activities in the US, Tommy Mair was also a supporter of the National Alliance (NA), a once-prominent neo-Nazi organisation in the United States. Receipts published by the SPLC appear to show Mair had literature detailing how to make homemade guns and bombs.[12]

Britain First

Far-right group Britain First released a statement on Thursday distancing itself from Tommy Mair after commercially-controlled media reports circulated he had shouted "(put) Britain first" during the attack on Cox. A witness has denied that he said this.[13]

A senior member from the group, which has in the past spoken of a hatred of white left-wing politicians, said they “were as shocked as anyone” and the that suspect was “categorically not a member” of the group.[14]
