|Flowers for the late Jo Cox MP at Reading's|
Spanish Civil War Monument
Following the event, GetReading published a summary of the proceedings (http://www.getreading.co.uk/news/reading-berkshire-news/reading-community-gathers-remember-labour-11490404), BBC South Today included interviews and filmic panoramas of the gathering (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07flgbm at 10:58) and BBC Radio Berkshire included a report and interview (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03wwzy9#play at 1h12mins). The media were tasteful in their presence and reporting – though some overplayed the role of Reading East’s Conservative MP, Rob Wilson, who, while welcome at the event, did not echo the sentiments of tolerance and belonging as forcefully as most other speakers. That message might have been more clearly projected on television and in print.
