The former Prime Minister said: My thoughts with the families of those injured & killed. Those seeking to attack our democracy with these barbarous methods will never win.
The UK Parliament Terror-Attack happened exactly on the anniversary of the Brussels twin-attacks and the attacker appears to have used similar, if not the same methods we’ve seen in both the Brussels and Germany terror attacks thus beg the question as to whether he is an ‘ISlS’ affiliate? More details of the terrorist assault are expected to emerge in due course and that of the identity of the terrorist.
Although many will be having an opinion regarding the motive behind such barbarous attack by this lone extremist (Fake Muslims- ISIS); but what we should and must never allow them to succeed in achieving is, “instilling fear in our hearts and dividing our “harmonious -Multicultural” Society. That is there true intentions & ultimate dream so let stick together as a family.
