    2017.06.05 - UK heads to polls in wake of 2 recent Islamic terror attacks

    The U.K. heads to the polls in 3 days, following 2 major Islamic terror attacks within the last 2 weeks.

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/breaki...ABN?li=BBnb7Kz

    LONDON — The police investigation into London’s latest terror attack intensified Monday as politicians officially resumed campaigning ahead of an unpredictable election that sees Britons go to the polls in just three days.

    Rival party leaders lashed out at one another as the nation mourned. With her premiership on the line, May took an aggressive and combative tone Sunday, telling the nation that “enough is enough” and insisting that there is “far too much tolerance for extremism in our country.”

    “Things need to change,” May said in a speech outside the prime minister’s residence at 10 Downing Street.

    She blamed the attack on the “evil ideology of Islamist extremism,” called for a thorough review of the nation’s counterterrorism policies and suggested that she will take a much tougher line if she wins Thursday’s vote.

    The speech was criticized by the opposition Labour Party as a thinly veiled jab at their far-left leader, Jeremy Corbyn, whom May has often accused of coddling anti-Western militants. May, Corbyn’s backers said, had politicized the attack.

    But by evening, Corbyn had hit back with his own political response to the killing, accusing May and her Conservative allies of weakening security services through years of austerity.
    “You cannot protect the public on the cheap,” Corbyn said in a speech in the northern English city of Carlisle that ended a brief pause in formal campaigning. “The police and security services must get the resources they need, not 20,000 police cuts.”

    Corbyn also derided President Trump, accusing him of lacking both “grace” and “sense” after the U.S. leader twisted a quote from London Mayor Sadiq Khan to launch an attack on the West’s most prominent Muslim politician.

    May, who has gone to great lengths to cultivate ties with Trump, had earlier defended Khan while carefully avoiding any criticism of the U.S. president.

    In shadow of deadly attacks, British election campaign resumes

    http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSKBN18V15U

    It was not immediately clear how the attack would impact the election, though the issue of security has been thrust to the forefront of the campaign after the London Bridge and Manchester attacks.

    The campaign was suspended for several days last month when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a concert by U.S. pop singer Ariana Grande in Manchester.

    After London Bridge, World Is Sick Of Politicians Downplaying Terrorism

    As if on cue, in the wake of Saturday’s terrorist attack in London political leaders are trotting out the usual treacly lines that have become so rote. But the words they pretend will provide comfort to anyone but the most naïve are borderline worthless. Worse, they’re an insult to the families who have had to experience the shocking pain of the sudden loss of a family member or friend at the hands of a terrorist.

    Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, called Saturday’s attack “deliberate and cowardly,” and asked “all Londoners to remain calm and vigilant today and in the days ahead.” Most notably, he said: “You will see an increased police presence today, including armed officers and uniformed officers. There is no reason to be alarmed by this. We are the safest global city in the world.”

    What a thing to say at a time like this. Shouldn’t Britons be alarmed? Isn’t Saturday’s attack in London, coming as it did on the heels of the Manchester bombing, deeply disturbing? Why isn’t Khan more concerned about the threats that are so obviously at the doorstep, or better put, in Britain’s streets? Does anyone really take comfort from being told about swift police response times after yet another terrorist attack?

    Our political leaders are basically telling us that this kind of terrorism, random and deadly, is the price we have to pay for their policies of multiculturalism and political correctness. They know that their weak platitudes can’t stop terrorism, and so do the people. They might as well come out and say what they mean: get used to the new normal.

    Sadiq Khan vigorously defended terrorists in the past and he is still doing that to this very day as Mayor of London.

    Rather than look inward at the glaring shadiness and corruption inherent*throughout UK government polices, its “leaders” are looking to use these barbaric acts as a excuse to push through an authoritarian and illiberal expansion of state power. Specifically, Theresa May’s government is despicably using the attacks to push for regulation and censorship of the internet.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0...t-not-internet

    It’s important to understand that May’s government was aggressively pushing for internet censorship well before both the recent terror attacks. For example, here’s some of what I highlighted in last month’s post,*UK Government Moves Aggressively to Censor and Control the Internet:

    In that regard, over the weekend I read one of the most disturbing and enlightening pieces on just how complicit UK intelligence agencies are when it comes to supporting terrorism and allowing terrorists to come back to Great Britain.

    The piece is a collaboration between Nafeez Ahmed and Mark Curtis, and is a lengthy must read. It’s titled,*The Manchester Bombing: Blowback from British State Collusion with Jihadists Abroad.*Prepare to be outraged:

    Prime Minister Theresa May has just held a rally promising to get tough on terrorism if re-elected by having tougher jail sentences for terrorists, preventing terrorists from returning to the country after going to terrorist hotspots and deporting terrorists back to their home country. I agree with all of this and don't know why it is not done already.

    Elley I thought you could use another poster on here. I have had a long interest in UK politics and have been following this campaign. You may have seen this story that just came out this evening:

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/813...terror-atttack

    The parties are in a dead heat. Given May's dizzying collapse, the UK could well wake up Friday with a hung result or even a minority Labour government.

    Theresa May Vows To Rip Up Human Rights Laws To "Restrict The Freedom Of Terrorist Suspects"

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0...orist-suspects

    *
    "We need to take on the ideology that unites and motivates the perpetrators of these attacks."
    *
    “We should do even more to restrict the freedom and the movements of terrorist suspects when we have enough evidence to know they present a threat, but not enough evidence to prosecute them in full in court."
    *
    "And if human rights laws get in the way of doing these things, we will change those laws to make sure we can do them."

    Jeremy Corbyn addressed a rally attended by 300 members of an extremist group linked to the leader of the London Bridge attacks, writes Jack Doyle and Kate Ferguson.*

    He addressed an anti-Israel protest where Islamists from Al Muhajiroun chanted about their support for Osama Bin Laden and shouted slogans calling for Israelis to be gassed. Two were dressed in mock suicide bomber outfits.

    I'd be careful about using the Daily Mail as a source. It is on the same level as a supermarket tabloid.

    The link is about the London Mayor attending a conference where some elements were also attending. Unless i missed it totally it looks like this happened before the attacks. I didn't see anything about Corbyn having been there.

    If wrong, I am open to correction.

    FWIW I found an article about the episode with Corbyn allegedly consorting with terrorists:

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/politi...-Rigby-killers

    This happened in 2013. Four years ago.

    That does not lessen for me any question about his judgement. This was not something that happened during the campaign. It might not have been the intent here to imply it did but that was what I took away from reading the post alluding to it. It is old news. Not current news. Borders by now on fake news.
