Two days ahead of a year since the killing of Jo Cox MP. What was the murderer Thomas Alexander Mair doing two days ahead of the murder of a democratically elected politician ? According to The Independent newspaper report of the trial Mair spent the days before the murder reading about former Conservative MP's William Hague and Ian Gow. Ian Gow MP was appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in May 1979.
Ian Gow MP was the son of a doctor, he was educated at Winchester College, became an army officer and qualified as a solicitor. Gow became MP for Eastbourne in 1972 after the Eastbourne Conservatives deselected the sitting MP, Sir Charles Taylor, who had represented Eastbourne since 1935. "Taylor did not take kindly to Gow" (wikipedia link to article Ian Gow MP, see below). Thomas Alexander Mair was a gardener who is reported to have researched Nazi and Klu Klux Klan material - why was he interested in Gow ?
We wonder why a gardener, reported as "obsessed" with "extreme far-right organisations like the SS" should include the well-to-do Ian Gow MP in his reading just prior to committing the murder of Jo Cox MP ? Why did Mair include the Conservative Party in his extreme far-right interests ? What precise reason did he have to believe that his interests in the SS, Klu Klux Klan and the Nazis should fit comfortably with former Conservative Party MP's William Hague and Ian Gow ? It is a question that none of the newspaper reports of the trial consider - we think it is a question of vital importance that needs to be answered in full.
