Attack in London

It's all a load of Cannonballs in here! This is the virtual Arsenal pub where you can chat about anything except football. Be warned though, like any pub, the content may not always be suitable for everyone.

Did you know that MP's did not want armed policemen at those particular gates as it would look too grim to the public!...
Which answers the question as to why this officer did not even have a taser!
I am sure this will be overlooked and fudged over by those politicians...
I was at those gates 4 weeks or so ago and there were armed police there, with airport style machine guns
Wish they had been there at the time the unarmed officer was being stabbed to death!
Totally agree having seen them im amazed they werent
I know mate...
The fella received a Commendation along with my lad couple of years back, it hurts mate.... :cry:
Why are they at such a terrorism hotspot without gun? Shouldnt have been allowed

They better come out with the truth, that's all I can say...
For the sake of the family...
And as for Amber Rudd, she can go and fuck herself!....

I just fail to understand, after so much security and privacy laws in place, why are the secret services not able to curb terrorism. It hurts to see humans die like this.
May the departed soul rest in peace.

I guess that if a "group" organises some sort of event,the act of planning it must leave some sort of trail,be it electronic,paper or physical,(ie:- meetings), whereas a "self-starter" is more random,therefore harder to intercept.

They do curb terrorism (mostly) and prevent dozens of attacks every year. In the UK alone;

Unfortunately you cannot prevent 100% of these attacks, particularly the so called "low-tech lone wolf" style attacks where a scumbag basically uses whatever weapon is at hand (knife, truck, car etc) to launch a sudden unexpected attack. :|

The most worrying thing is the use of vehicles and the mowing down of innocents like fucking 10 pin bowling pins
Surprised Westminster Bridge as with most bridges do not have bollards to prevent vehicles from mounting pavements, and I am not talking about terrorism, just public safety...

Yeah BUT then if an ambulance needs to attend they cant get over on the pavement- nor fire and rescue or police if some nutter walking kicks off. There should be bollards but ones that drop down like on some streets for bus traffic. Sadly you cant make everything 100% else we all end up being wrapped in colney crech cotton wool. :oops:

I do understand this fact that 100% cannot be achieved. And to the fact that every other person attacking with a knife, car, truck then should not be classified into an act of terrorism.
The word has been coined and it is now been generalized to every other act. I need to correct myself too. But deep inside i think it is not right.

There could be a certain amount of truth to this, coining it always terorrism and giving 3 days billing across every news medium, these are the same pricks that would otherwise mormally glass or stab somebody on a Feiday night, for no other reason than attention seeking and self loathing

Now if they grow a beard and and get radicalised, so they can be famous. *word censored*.

Headline should read :deranged loser UNNAMED kills innocent people.

Two Churches in Egypt have been bombed today killing,at the last count 31 people.
Why is it that they expect mosques to be respected in non muslim countries,and yet they show no reciprical respect for the followers,or their places of worship of other religions in their countries? :banghead:

Apparently was refused asylum....
Can I just say, once refused asylum put them under lock and key before deportation less of a risk to the public...
If Lorraine's are to be left unattended, then at least invent an immobiliser, so these nutters have less of an opportunity to create carnage, fuck me we can fly to the moon and back and simple inventions are constantly overlooked...
