Several supporters of jack shouted ”we are with you, Jack” after the 23-year-old was sentenced.
Jack Renshaw’s plans were thwarted by whistle-blower Robbie Mullen who was at a meeting in a pub when the 23-year -old announced his intentions in July 2017.
Roosie Cooper thanked Robbie Mullen in a statement “I wish to thank Robbie Mullen whose bravery saved my life, the Parliamentary Authorities including the Parliamentary Liaison and Investigation Team, the Police – Lancashire and Merseyside Forces and the North West Counter Terrorism unit for keeping me safe.
“Now the case has ended, I will not be making any further comment. I look forward to focusing solely on my work on behalf of the people of West Lancashire as their MP.”
After the sentencing Rosie Cooper said “My deepest wish is that this case is the last occasion when any public servant, any politician, has their life threatened for simply doing their job.”
