The Fishing for Leave campaign planned demonstration of fishing vessels in the Clyde tomorrow, following the highly successful protest in the Thames yesterday, has been officially cancelled as a mark of respect to the family of Labour MP and “remain’ campaigner Jo Cox who died today after being stabbed and shot by an attacker.

Fishing for Leave (FFL) organisers also believed that it was not in the interest of public safety to proceed with the protest in the Clyde following ‘viable threats’ from Remain campaigners who claimed they would ‘wreck havoc’ at the demonstration.

FFL founder member Aaron Brown said that coming immediately after the disgraceful attempts by Remain campaigners, with the assistance of Bob Geldof, to turn yesterday’s peaceful protest in the Thames into a riot, it was disappointing to see these efforts of disruption taken to a new level by threatening the safety of the general public at the proposed Clyde protest
