Terrorism on our shores

Once again the United Kingdom has been subjected to a horrific attack. Last night, three man drove a van across London Bridge, into tourists, citizens of London, levellers: innocent people.  They then got out of the van and began a rampage, stabbing people – anyone they could get.

Being of a certain age, means that this is not an unusual event.  Whilst hostilities may have ended a while ago,  The memories of the IRA bombings still live on. 

I’m not sure what kind of daemonic attitude or feelings brings about such horrendous actions but once again the people of Britain have rallied. They run into danger, both ordinary civilians and trained personnel. Both had no thought their own safety. Others have offered support and help. Despite the horrendous events the nation has stood together, as one. I guess this is why Britain is great.
