A Muslim woman tried to kill a Labour MP by stabbing him in the stomach ‘in revenge’ for him voting for the Iraq War. Roshonara Choudhry, 21, is accused of knifing Stephen Timms twice in a shock attack during a constituency meeting after she greeted the MP with a smile and offered him the hand of friendship.

Mr Justice Cooke, sentencing Choudhry, said: ‘You said you ruined the rest of your life. You said it was worth it. You said you wanted to be a martyr’.
The judge said Choudhry would continue to be a danger to Members of Parliament for the foreseeable future. The judge said that if Choudhry had succeeded in killing Mr Timms he would have given her a whole-life sentence, meaning she would never be released.
