thomas? anchor the man, the former president, trying to remove from history? ah ok. let's get more on that still breaking news coming to us out of the u. k. where a member of parliaments from the governing, conservative party, died to day after being stopped several times. david amos was a veteran member of parliament, this meeting members of the public when a man went into the meeting room and stopped him several times to hall joyce his life. now he's falling that story out of london. this is shocking that this can happen in this day and age. jonah, it is shocking. indeed. it's shocking, particularly in westminster. the union flag flying at half mast over downing street colleagues of david a mis in parliament expressing their shock and dismay at what
7:02 pm
has happened, calling him one of them, one of the kindest, most compassionate and well liked colleagues in parliament, david amos, a conservative m p. for nearly 40 years, he 1st entered parliament in 1983. he held this particular constituency in south and west in essex and south east england since 1997. he could regularly be heard on the floor of the house of commons calling for debate on animal welfare issues, a particular subject that he favored. he also enjoyed it. he said immensely bringing issues to the house that he heard from his own constituencies during constituency surgeries and it was during one of these surgeries. these regularly shed your face to face meetings between constituents and their elected representatives. david amos was attacked in leon. c a. c. side town inside the church, whole a man launched him with a knife inflicting multiple stab wounds. the police were very quickly on the scene
7:03 pm
. shortly afterwards released a statement saying that arrested a man. we now know that is a 25 year old man. they also recovered a knife on the scene, and they also said that they are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident and don't believe that there is an ongoing threat to the wider public . now that of course, gives rise to questions about the motive we simply don't know yet what the motive for this attack this incident was. busy we know that counter terrorism police are involved in an ongoing investigation, probably with quite a lot more work still to do will be there is no suggestion that terrorism is involved here. that's quite possibly a precautionary matter. under the circumstances, david aim is not the 1st m p to meet his end in this way, joe cock 2016 in 1990. i think it was very nice. 1979. he was blown up by the i ray and i guess we should put that in the context as well as the grand hotel bombing that the hands of the ira in the city of brighton during the tory party
7:04 pm
conference one year. but this will surely reignite jonah that debate about whether british and peas should have, i guess, armed protection with them when they do these twice a month, constituency meetings. it was a debate that flared up after joe cox's killing in 2016 and will no doubt. as you say, once again, you know, when they're on the parliamentary estate, when they're in parliament, when they're doing that end of their jobs, these empties. they are very heavily protected by police. indeed, one on police officer was killed in an attack on parliament on the parliamentary estate in march, 2017. threats to politicians are nothing new. and yet when they leave the parliamentary estate there afforded no protection whatsoever. and when they go about doing their jobs inside their constituencies that involve these open door meetings, face to face meetings, anybody can walk in, no security is involved at all. indeed,
7:05 pm
that is an absolutely key part of the work that they do of the political system in this country. this openness, this opportunity for people to come and share their problems with their elected representatives, giving them some sense of participation, of recourse and accountability. they will be a lot of defenders as they have been in the past, who will say, take that away by putting on police on the scene and you take away an absolutely key part of democracy in this country. but i'm sure that debate is, is, is yet to come once again. jonah for the moment. thank you very much. well, a little earlier, i spoke to alex dean, a conservative commentator. he also knew david amos, he says, members of parliament need more protection. every one in the conservative party knew him. he was a remarkable land. he worked incredibly hard for his party for his constituents, of the people he wanted to get um, something done in politics, he was a doer. and i simply pete. i cannot believe that this has happened. i can't believe this happened again. i was at a large,
