IT IS unfortunate that we have to wait until her death to know what a superb and conscientious person and MP Jo Cox was.

Few of us know our MPs well. I had but a brief acquaintance with our ex-MP Steve Webb.

I am sure that, like all of us, they have their minor faults and peccadilloes.

Perhaps we should pay tribute to them and value them whilst they still live, rather than waiting until the Grim Reaper gathers them.
