Judging from the media coverage of Labour MP Jo Cox's murder, terrorism is now a word that is confined to describing violence committed by brown-skinned Muslims.

Thomas Mair, who has been charged in connection with her death, allegedly screamed "Britain First", the name of a right-wing anti-immigrant political party, as he carried out his frenzied attack.
