Hello, this post comes out with a heavy heart.
Our whole country feels sadness today, for those caught up in a shocking attack on Manchester, one of our greatest cities. Mancunians are a breed apart: teenagers who are funny amongst themselves, yet who stand together against the world. And they care. That’s why we saw the people on the streets last night offering free taxis, water, food.
“Yes, love …” says it all to strangers and friends alike.
The tweeter earlier dealt the perpetrators a stunning blow in a nutshell. That person said the Evil would always be thought of as Losers. That is a teenager speaking. It is followed here: The Losers. Do not say where they come from or give a name to any who claim responsibility, as they crave publicity.
The Losers have claimed responsibility quite late, too late. It is obviously one person acting alone who has built a bomb and detonated it, quite forgetting to inform anyone. Unlikely, therefore not a four-person cell? Military acting alone? Unlikely. It must be Losers who seek to destroy lightheartedness, because they are afraid of freedom.
They will be caught. We do not want them in British prisons. Much infamy is bought in there. Contract a prison to the Americans. There is no freedom in their jails. Put them on the bleakest, coldest, wettest isle of the British Isles. Let it be shut down. No journalism allowed.
But today we mourn for lives lost young and older alike. We pray with mothers who have missing children. We pray for the wellbeing of those in hospital. Surely, if we all wish together and if we thank all Emergency Services and Intelligence Services for their swift response, it will make them feel better after seeing horrific sights and we can remember the victims in life. To bury a child is the worst scenario for any parent. But any member of a family taken in such a way makes all relatives sad. The act is done. The Losers have sickened and appalled us, but it will bring the British together much more than any election could have done. They lose again.
PS The European Union in Brussels has hung its flags at half-mast. Thank you; it means a lot.
