There are two incidents reported. Only one mentioned in this article, currently. The other reported in Borough Market.

CBS reports a third site of violence. These places may be close enough in proximity that the same group of perpetrators are mobile. I've never seen cops screaming this agitated at lookers on. We're seeing the scene of the arrests.

I can tell you having just visited this city a week ago that the citizens of London have come to accept these attacks as the new norm.

They're not changing the way they behave and live but they are not infuriated and demanding their government do something either.

It's a sad state of affairs.

Not related. Just a Saturday night stabbing in Vauxhall.

I think it is the opposite of a sad state of affairs. People are, rightly, distrustful of politicians who promise to "do something" when some awful event happens. No need to write blank cheques ("checks") to demagogues.

Harun Khan, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said Muslims everywhere were "outraged and disgusted at these cowards who once again have destroyed the lives of our fellow Britons".

He added: "That this should happen in this month of Ramadan, when many Muslims were praying and fasting only goes to show that these people respect neither life nor faith."

@centrox,
Fair enough, but what happens if these attacks continue to increase in frequency?

@Finn dAbuzz,
Sounds like May is determined to change Britain's approach.

"I think reverting immediately to hand-holding and singing "Imagine" may be over..." a quote I just heard by a British terrorism analyst.

Hopefully, she'll be out of a job on Friday, or if not then greatly weakened.

Are you pulling for Corbyn?

The Guildford pub bombings happened shortly before the general election, too, and you got the Prevention of Terrorism Act in those days ...

You mean you really can't tell? I have been a card-carrying member of the Labour Party since 1970. I am a Jezza supporter within the party. Not all 65 year olds are fascist Brexiteers as some polling analysts seem to think.

I hope so for their sake.

Unfortunately, love is not all you need.

@centrox,
Some of us could certainly tell! Smile

Given Corbyn's softness on terrorism and his recent refusal to unequivocally denounce the IRA, I can't imagine that these latest terrorist attacks will help Labour in the upcoming election

@centrox,
Truthfully, I was a bit ignorant as to the possibility of an additional party who may have a reasonable chance--and so many here have criticized Corbyn, so I didn't want to assume.

I like Corbyn a lot--based on the little I know about him.

Then you are one among a few. His own party members don't like him.

The Blairite "New Labour" wing in the Parliamentary Labour Party (the Labour members of Parliament) don't like him, but the leader is elected by the ordinary members like me, and a thumping majority voted for him. His popularity in the country is closing fast on May's.

@centrox,
With two days to go I don't think Labour is going to catch up, but in the world of Brexit and Trump, anything is possible.

Or is it four?
