So shocked and sad that our great friend and ally David Amess has tragically lost his life, his future, his family, his work, his dreams (seen here supporting our Save-Me campaign to save Britain’s hedgehogs).
This man was gentle, amiable, a great supporter of the rights of both humans and animals, and, behind his friendly smile, a man not afraid to speak his mind, his truth … which is increasingly perilous in these troubled days. I fear this is the terrible price he paid.
Heartfelt condolences to his family, his friends, his colleagues. And we are all the poorer, here in England. I fear this country is truly falling to pieces.
