Politicians in the United Kingdom are in uproar over an anonymous piece in the Sunday Times by a Tory politician who warned his own Prime Minister Ms Theresa May that "the moment is coming when the knife gets heated, stuck in her front and twisted. She'll be dead soon."

The PM was also told to "bring her own noose" when attending a party meeting scheduled for later this week.

The warning reminds many of the murder of Labour politician Ms Jo Cox, who was stabbed in broad daylight in her West Yorkshire constituency by right-wing extremist Mr Thomas Mair just days before the 2016 Brexit vote. During his court appearance, Mr Mair said his name was: “death to traitors, freedom for Britain.”

British Members of Parliament from all sides of the political spectrum have immediately condemned the language used, with Conservative Ms Sarah Wollaston saying whoever was responsible for the quote was a "spineless coward", before adding: "Have they learned nothing following the assassination of Jo Cox?"

The comments come as politicians are getting desperate about that state of affairs over Brexit, as a plan seems to be far off and the EU clearly has the winning hand in the negotiations in this point.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The tone of language surrounding Theresa May from her own side is a disgrace. Telling her to &quot;bring her own noose&quot; and talks about &quot;stabbing her in the front&quot; have no place in any society.<br><br>How quick some have forgotten the brutal murder of Jo Cox.</p>&mdash; Vaughan Williams 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🇮🇪🇪🇺 (@Vaughan_Wms) <a href="https://twitter.com/Vaughan_Wms/status/1054454513778786305?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 22, 2018</a></blockquote>

Asked for a response, PM May said: "I think it is incumbent on all of us in public life to be careful about the language we use. There are passionate beliefs and passionate views held on this subject Brexit and other subjects.

"But whatever the subject is, we should all be careful about our language."

One of the opposition party Labour leaders, Ms Yvette Cooper, stated that the Tory party should identify whoever made the comments: "This is vile and dehumanising language towards a woman MP, towards a prime minister who, no matter how much you might disagree with her, is someone who is doing a job in public life."

"Nobody should be subject to that kind of violent language, which I think is normalising violence in public debate at a time when we lost Jo Cox, we have had threats against Rosie Cooper, we have had other violent death threats against women MPs."

Is she doing a job in public life??? why isn't she giving the public what they voted for? she is merely and instrument of the publics voice and desires to carry out what has been given her to do. The mistake these politicians make is that they think they have decisions to make. They don't!! They are their to represent the people. They themselves should think of themselves as a pen on paper and nothing more. do what your constituents vote for. SIMPLE! The remark, "have they learned nothing from the murder of Jo Cox", runs both ways. People vote, because they don't want to live the dictates of the few!
