Re: Potential Terror attack Houses of Parliament thwarted by armed Police

Or of course it just be some deranged person having a problem - Scare headlines with no evidence in both cases, but what I've come to expect from those sources,

I could be wrong, too, but I may not be. As they may not be.

Theresa May apparently whisked away into a car some 40 yards from the gates outside parliament and everyone else on lockdown...

Re: Potential Terror attack Houses of Parliament thwarted by armed Police

Yeah, I know you didn`t mean it the way I read it... but that seems to be the kind of thing that the news stations and newspaper reports say after any event...

 

i.e.   so many people were injured/killed... but the prime minister,.. ( or some other bigwig ) is unhurt...  

as if ... because they are ok... then it is ok for those others to be injured/killed in the incident..

I agree with everything you say @shutter I am watching live updates and it does not feel nice knowing once again it is the general public that suffers because of those in power.

And Conservative MP Tobias Ellwood gave mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to the policeman who was stabbed and is being branded a ' hero ' , the heroes in my opinion are on the bridge.

Re: Potential Terror attack Houses of Parliament thwarted by armed Police

The officer who died in the attack has been named as Keith Palmer.

Scotland Yard's Mark Rowley said Mr Palmer, 48, had 15 years service as a police officer and was a husband and father.

He said he would not comment on the identity of the attacker, although he suggested the police was aware of who the assailant was. 

His assailant Below Sad

The version I heard on TV was that the MP bravely ran towards the injured PC to assist while there was still a risk to himself. It was also reported that he gave CPR for 15 mins before being relieved by medics.  Having tried with a first aid dummy that would have been incredibly exhausting - though I wonder why so long before someone else took over. I'd say that he merits the tag 'hero' certainly more so than well paid sports persons who perform well in their profession.

Re: Potential Terror attack Houses of Parliament thwarted by armed Police

I thought it might be yet another Norwegian like the one in Russel Square last year.

Diane Abbott on Newsnight mentioned the lock-down; perhaps MPs aren't overpaid after all if they are forced to spend five hours in lock-down with Diane Abbott.
