(ANSA) - LONDON, 18 OCT - A unanimous tribute, with no distinctions between parties, by a Parliament dressed in all clothing.

Thus the House of Commons recalled today in an extraordinary session Sir David Amess, a long-time Tory deputy killed on Friday with 17 stab wounds at the hand of a 25-year-old Londoner of Somali origin, Ali Harbi Ali, probably inspired by jihadist hatred, in Leigh-on-Sea, in 'Essex (South England), during a traditional meeting with its constituents hosted on the premises of a Methodist church.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson, opening the commemoration, spoke of a "tragic and senseless" murder, an act of "ignoble violence", while he recalled the party mate as a man of principles, but also of dialogue, "kind" in the difference of opinions. Words echoed with analog tones from the Labor opposition leader KeirStarmer as from all groups; against the background of common appeals to ensure that British democracy is not "intimidated" by violence and respond to the latter in a spirit of unity, as after the killing of Labor MP Jo Cox in 2016.

    Johnson then announced the signing of the queen under a provision in honor of the deceased for the promotion of the area of ​​his college, that of Southend, to the status of a metropolitan area: an objective for which Amess had fought for years in the name of his legendary connection with the territory of which he was deputy and with the voters he loved to meet face to face constantly, as has been mentioned.

An element that has pushed the Prime Minister, the Minister of the Interior, Priti Patel, KeirStarmer and others to underline the need to strengthen the protection of the elected officials in their public meetings and against the threats of abuse on social media, while guaranteeing respect for the British democratic tradition "of openness and free access of voters to elected representatives.
