Jo's inspiration to join the party? 'I was so moved fby the emotional tribute from Brendan Cox, shortly after Jo's death, listening to his incredible humility and forgiveness. He gave a plea for more women and mothers like Jo to become involved in politics and not to be put off by what had happened so that's why I'm here'.
