FORMER Polegate MP Norman Baker says the murder of Sir David Amess is ‘an attack on democracy.’

Norman posted: “Shocking to hear about the stabbing of David Amess.

Nothing whatsoever can justify this type of action, no matter who the MP is or what the issue is.

As it happens, I have always got on well with David which makes this even more upsetting.

MPs’ surgeries are a vital part of the democratic process and whoever attacked David is also attacking democracy.”
