British man jailed for sending MP death threat

A man who posted a death threat to a British lawmaker was on Friday jailed for a year, the public prosecutor announced, as it published a safety guide for general election candidates.

Alden Bryce Barlow was convicted in Sheffield, northern England, after admitting to sending the letter to Anna Soubry, which read “Cox was the first, you are the next”.

Labour MP Jo Cox was shot dead by a neo-Nazi during the 2016 Brexit referendum campaign.

The letter, sent to Soubry’s constituency office in Nottingham, central England, also described Soubry, who has fought to overturn Brexit, as “treacherous” and “worthless”.
