The saddest part is, what can be done? If banning a group of people based on religion or place of origin is wrong, what else can we do? Ban guns? They use bombs, which are already illegal, or knives, or cars. Education? The majority of these attackers are homegrown, second generation. They grew up in these countries and still made their decisions. Counter intelligence? Blamed for profiling and invasion of privacy.

Nothing can be done, at least nothing that fits progressive western ethics.

Apparently there were signs.

Mohammed Saeed, a senior figure of Didsbury Mosque and Islamic Centre, said Salman Abedi had looked at him “with hate” after he gave a sermon criticising Isis and Ansar al-Sharia in Libya.

Saeed said he gave a strong sermon against terrorism and about the sanctity of life in 2015. He said 2,000 members of the mosque were with him; a small number were not; and a few signed a petition criticising him.

“Salman showed me a face of hate after that sermon,” he said. “He was showing me hatred.”

Saeed said a friend was so worried that he got his adult children to sit beside Salman Abedi in case he was attacked Saeed.

Saeed, who was born in Libya and came to the UK in 1980, said he was worried he would be labelled a “snitch”. But he said: “I have to speak out to protect our community, to protect innocent people.”

Perhaps making it easier to speak out before something happens would be a start.

Might be time to send their names to the police now XD

Counter mesures must be put in place to prevent Muslim terrorists from attacking non-Muslims.
How about 24/7 surveillance and have military troops carrying out security checks?
It will be hard to carry out a terrorist attack if there are armed guards with rifles or shot guns pointed at the terrorists head.

No problem, just raise taxes 20% so we will be able to afford this kind of surveillance.

Just stop giving religions tax exemptions and they can pay for being surveilled themselves!

Nah, from the additional tax income from abolishing religious tax exemptions we will build bunkers for non-religious people to keep them safe.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Are payroll taxes that steep in the UK? It's not like income isn't taxed.

Oh shut up you disrespectful fool.  No politician is going to do that.   This election is already full of this kind of garbage and vitriol, the left will blame their opponenets for anything.  You are saying this happened under her 'watch' as though it is her fault?  What a fucking iditoitic, callous and childish thing to say.

Grow up!

No politian is going to do that? I'll bookmark this to necrobump at a later date then.

Of course this isn't her fault. But if someone is going to say 'trust me to lead this country and I'll put an end to this happening' then when it does you leave yourself open to that.  We'll see if she or anyone uses this though, I really would not be surprised.

Wasn't it Tony Blair (who was a labor politician) who started the insane immigration policies that led to millions of immigrants coming to the UK? And wasn't it his choice to join the US in Iraq - supposedly which has led to all the problems in the Middle East according to all leftists?

Yep. Tony blair was an awful prime minister. 

Also you do know Theresa May voted to be in that war as well? Right? I wonder who's running for PM that voted against it... hmm.

Haven't seen anything from the conversatives. And this isn't exactly using it in the way I originally thought the conservatives would do but.. it's clearly in response to the attack. 

 

 

A man of my word, it seems Labour is all of a sudden for Trident now after this. (even though In my opinon trident is completely redundant)
