Thomas Mair, the man charged with the murder of lawmaker Jo Cox, gave his name as "death to traitors, freedom for Britain" when he appeared in court following an attack that has shocked Britain ahead of next week's referendum on European Union membership.Cox, a 41-year-old member of the opposition Labour Party who supported staying in the EU, was shot and stabbed Thursday in the street in her electoral district in northern England. A telephone survey by BMG for Scotland's The Herald newspaper Saturday showed the "In" camp on 53 percent and "Out" on 47 percent, although a separate online poll by BMG showed Out leading by 10 points, with 55 percent support compared to In's 45 percent.Both polls were carried out before the killing of Cox. The International Monetary Fund, which has previously warned that Britain and the world economy could be hit by a so-called Brexit, said on Saturday an exit could leave Britain's economy more than 5 percent smaller by 2019 .
