As much as I feel for the innocents killed and injured in yesterday’s islamist terrorist attacks the fault lies at the feet of the British government for allowing so many of these vermin to surge into their country with no demands made on them to assimilate……quite the contrary they’re encouraged to keep their culture but I also blame the British people for their PC attitude of shutting down all opinions and complaints about them thereby allowing and encouraging this nonsense.
Meanwhile, expect teddy bears and hashtags to salve their collective consciences.
The men, described as being ‘of Mediterranean origin’, mowed down up to 20 revellers as they careered across London Bridge in an ‘S shape’ at 50mph before they began ‘randomly stabbing’ people in nearby Borough Market.
Attackers used 12-inch hunting knives to attack revellers at busy bars and restaurants in the market, sending dozens of others fleeing for their lives.
Witnesses said the gang, who were wearing hoax suicide vests, smashed pub windows and reportedly cut the throats of drinkers. A ‘dark-skinned’ man in a red tracksuit ‘calmly’ stabbed a man three times. Another victim was reportedly stabbed five times in the chest.
Armed police rushed to the scene and authorities urged panicked Londoners on Twitter to ‘run, hide, tell’ if they were caught in the ‘utter chaos’.
The male suspects were shot and killed by armed police in Borough Market within eight minutes of the first call. A photo taken at the scene shows one of the suspects wearing an Arsenal football shirt.
Today police remain at the scene and a ‘full investigation’ is underway. One witness reported seeing armed police storming an apartment complex in Barking, south London, this morning.
The tragedy comes just 12 days after the Manchester terror attack and 10 weeks after the Westminster atrocity. Britain’s terror threat level remains at severe after it was raised to critical in the week after the Manchester attack.
