3 terrorists shot dead within 8 minutes of the 1st call. Excellent response from the London Met.

Stop it. Just stop, what's the point of this thread? The news is out there for us to read.
Just, enough. Stop.

For my part it was just to let people know if they didn't already.

I consider myself to be fairly aware of things but this happened just after 10.00pm UK time (6.00pm my time) and I didn't see anything until over four hours later despite being on my laptop with the Guardian as my home page.

Although I wasn't watching TV (not on the TV anyway, I was watching House of Cards on Netflix) but others in the house were and nobody saw anything about it.

We on BE are mostly from the UK. I don't see any harm in putting it out there for those who may also not have heard.

First I heard about it was when my girlfriend asked "what's happened in London" at around 9:30 last night. I replied "huh?" and popped off for a quick look as I didn't have a clue.

Some horrific eyewitness accounts now being appearing on the news. The police certainly seemed to have done an excellent job in managing the situation and 'neutralising' the problem.

Many threads on BE are arguably pointless. Just ignore them, don't participate in them.

Yes. For example if there's no thread, where could we post a link such as this:


Shard's interesting link

People are certainly going to be a bit more wary on the bridges. On the radio they were talking about whether bollards should be installed.

I don't think the army can do that much, more of an intelligence issue.

I liked the picture of the man running with a pint glass in his hand ............ it said he hadn't spilled one drop.


I also liked the story of the policeman who went after the attackers armed only with his baton. He was stabbed, but I understand he will recover.


Why did I like those two??


Because to me, they exemplify the spirit that used to be in Britain, and one that sometimes seems to have been lost!

Once the perps are identified, wonder if it will turn out that they were 'on the radar but not considered an imminent threat' by the British security community? How can such individuals be secured? Well, you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs. On the Radar? Internment sounds a possible solution for such individuals. Draconian? Perhaps but public safety should be paramount. The PC gloves must come off....enough is enough. Draft the legislation and let's get on with it. Too many of these bastards have been 'on' the radar but not considered an immenent threat' and have turned out to be exactly that. Won't go down well with many I am sure but something has to change regarding how much tolerance is afforded to such individuals.

I have np doubt that will be the case.
