So sad. Our thoughts go out to all those killed and injured.

 

There is an emergency COBRA meeting in Downing Street this morning and the main political parties have suspended canvassing in the election.

Disgusting acts by disgusting people, and all it does is serve to fuel xenophobia and hatred...

Words fail me, despicable hardly seems appropriate. I hope if anyone is proven to have aided and abetted the full force of the law is thrown at them. 

 

RIP.

All credit to the Police and other emergency services for the way they handled the situation.

The death toll may be expected to increase with the large number of injured.

Re: Deaths confirmed after Manchester Arena blast

Hard to contemplate what kind of twisted mind would target teenagers leaving a concert.

Despicable.

Re: Deaths confirmed after Manchester Arena blast

I could hardly believe what I was reading when I first saw this on the news.

What sort of twisted sick person targets young people at a concert.

Whoever did this may have acted alone but must have been known to other people, no one lives in isolation.

I cannot imagine what the parents and relatives of the victims are going through.

My thoughts are with them at this sad time.

Young people's whole lives stolen from them. What a cowardly thing to do.

Re: Deaths confirmed after Manchester Arena blast

The death and injury rate is likely to rise, as are the number of opportunist knee jerk reactions.

Like chickens with their heads cut off which just what these lowlife bombers want of course but there again, how many times can we as a society be expected to rise above such things without being part of some sort of misguided kickback. Also no doubt we'll hear what we want to hear from the blue rinse Tory brigade, and hear what we do not want to hear from some bearded left leaning liberal tree hugging apologist in the guise one party leader in particular.

Re: Deaths confirmed after Manchester Arena blast

One wonders how it's possible to stop such ghastly events.

Massive security on way in then doors open after concert to allow parents to meet up with their children.

Sympathy for families involved doesn't seem enough.

@Minivanman

While it may not be against forum rules, it seems to me that it is inappropriate to turn this thread into party political point scoring. All political parties have suspended national campaigning, please can we echo that in this thread.
