Act now to stop ter­ror

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

THANK­FULLY, we avoided mass slaugh­ter on a London Tube yes­ter­day, be­cause a homemade bomb did not fully det­o­nate.

But it is a stark warn­ing that ter­ror­ism is a se­ri­ous threat, com­ing af­ter the Manch­ester carnage and pre­vi­ous at­tacks in our cap­i­tal.

As we sym­pa­thise with the in­jured and shud­der at the thought it could have been much worse, we must in­ten­sify the search for an­swers.

And we must stop dis­eased minds want­ing to maim and kill in the first place, catch and pun­ish those who do and, when their aim is to ter­rify, re­main calm and go about our daily lives as best we can.

Don­ald Trump should also butt out. His hasty re­ac­tion from the US yes­ter­day is as wrong as his slow re­sponse to ter­ror­ism on his home turf, in Char­lottesville.

And Tories who praised emer­gency work­ers yes­ter­day should wake up to their hypocrisy, as they are the same politi­cians who cut jobs and their wages. CCTV will of­fer many clues so it’s now the ter­ror­ists who should be scared.
