BBC Emphasize That Jo Cox Hero's Death Was Not Related To His Bravery

Hero Bernard Kenny died only a year after attack (express photo)
Bernard Kenny, the 79-year-old hero who was stabbed fighting the murderer of brave Jo Cox MP, has sadly died only a year after the tragic event.  Mr Kenny is reported to have been diagnosed with cancer but surely the possibility that his attack injuries could have contributed to his death should have been acknowledged by the BBC from common sense ! To completely omit such a possibility in their report seems to us to be highly questionable.

How many 79 year old men do you know who wouldn't have been deeply shaken by such an attack ?

The BBC is only too keen to report on the "public service" of the royal family (as is Romford MP Andrew Rosindell) but the emphasis in their report is that Mr Kenny's death is "not believed to be related to the incident" without offering the balanced common-sense possibility that the attack could well have contributed to his death so soon after the incident.

The BBC reports "Mr Kenny was seriously injured in the attack, but the cause of his death is not believed to be related to the incident. . .  After the attack more than 80,000 people signed an online petition calling for Mr Kenny to be awarded the George Cross for his bravery."

Note that a petition was needed in order for Mr Kenny's bravery to be recognised.
