Biting the hand that fed them, this is going to turn nasty.

Now some idiot has called for the general election to be cancelled indefinitely. That would delight the terrorist community.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Well we certainly seem to have a community of terrorists living amongst us. This has got to stop, but how?

Re: Incident at London Bridge

its about time we stopped the namby pambys running this country !!

these people dont deserve their human rights , the ones the police are watching should be rounded up and put in internment camps !!

its about time they were made to see we are no longer a easy target !!

Re: Incident at London Bridge

A terrible incident. The latest information is that 6 people have been killed and 48 injured.

 

The emergency services responded extremely quickly.

 

So sad that this type of incident is becoming so common.

 

The Prime Minister has returned to Downing Street and will chair a COBRA meeting later this morning.

@rongtw

Sadly such unworkable and reactionary solutions do not surprise us anymore, but what defence do we have against these kamikaze idealists?

Camps will sweep up the innocent as well as the guilty but I guess like bringing back the death penalty, many will consider it a price worth paying in order to defeat this war on terrorism (because that's what it is) as like all wars, it is not going to be won by occupying the moral high ground with one hand tied behind our backs. 

A strong government backed by a majority opinion should be given a free hand to erase scum like this from our communities - whatever it takes.  

Enough is enough.

Re: Incident at London Bridge

My son was in a Cinema nearby, they were locked in until 01:30, then it took an hour to get to nearby hotel.

All safe now, coming home a.s.a.p.
