An Open Statement Following the Horrific Terrorist Attacks Down London Bridge & Borough Market. / Tuesday 6th June 2017

It’s disgraceful to see that terrorism still exists in this world.

Almost three weeks ago, the terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena that killed 22 people following Ariana Grande‘s Dangerous Woman Tour, with a 23rd victim also confirmed dead shortly after the concert as a result of committing suicide, with the 23rd victim being a survivor of the 7 / 7 terrorist attack proved that there was a lack of policing and security considering bags weren’t checked before the concert and for London Bridge and Borough Market to be the subjects of these horrific terrorist attacks that took place late Saturday night, early Sunday morning just proves we need more policing on the streets of London.

To those who agreed to the police numbers being cut, you’re a disgrace! We need more police on the streets of London and across the United Kingdom, as this country has already suffered more than enough of what it has had to handle.

Please forgive me if I at any stage come across racist, but a lot of people have said that the foreign aid budget should be cut and used to pay for resources for our country, and I personally agree because our country gives out a lot of the money we spend to other countries when we clearly need it the most as our country is the most vulnerable.

The reasons why I believe the foreign aid budget should be cut and used on the United Kingdom instead is:

  • Because we need up-to-date modern technology, such as computers and pioneering equipment to keep the National Health Service (NHS) and its computers up-to-date, free from ransomware and other viruses that can put patient data at risk of being lost
  • Because we need that money to increase the police numbers and to maximise, tighten and secure the streets of London and the United Kingdom
  • Because we need to make sure that our country is free from terrorism, extremism and terror organisations who are willing to radicalise and brainwash those around them to kill.

I know a lot of people will be quick to judge those who are religious who haven’t done anything wrong but these problems must be solved.

I’m not against religion at all and respect everyone and I would never pass judgment on anyone and their religion, I’m just merely stating that some people will judge others for all the wrong reasons. Again, I would never pass judgment.

If all of you did by any chance find this offensive or racist, then I sincerely apologise. Offence is not the intention at all and racism is not the intention at all, but honesty is the best policy. I would rather all of you know how I really feel about these horrific terrorist attacks than not at all.

My heart, thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to all those who were affected by the disgraceful terrorist attacks down London Bridge & Borough Market.

Terrorism is the route to all evil, but we can all put a stop to terrorism by increasing the police numbers and regardless of the cost for policing, sod the cost, we need more policing on the streets and I hope the government listens and increases the police numbers and I also hope that the threat level is raised to critical and stays at ‘CRITICAL’ because terrorism has got to stop!

Let’s end terrorism by coming together and let’s end terrorism by getting our voices heard and hope that our government listen to us, the public, by increasing the police numbers.

Let’s stand united and end terrorism!

Let’s stick two fingers up to terrorism, extremism and radicalisation and make those who go against our values, including the religious values know that we shall never be afraid. This country deserves equality and diversity, but this country will not bow down to violence, will not spread hatred towards others, and will certainly never be inequal to those of sexuality, religion, background, skin colour, culture and origin.
