WHITE VAN Man
I DID never thought I would ever be writing about two young girls from Barra, who left the island to go and enjoy an event in Manchester and were caught up in one of the worst terrorist attacks in the UK.
It was so far from the peace and tranquility of their beautiful Hebridean island, and such a shocking tragedy to be brought home to the West Coast.
How could any human being mingle among children, teenagers and families knowing he was about to kill and injure so many? He was a coward.
Many people will say it is to do with his religious beliefs – I myself have beliefs but certainly cannot follow the current situation.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the families of both Eilidh MacLeod and Laura MacIntye (who remains ill in hospital), and I pray that Laura will make a full recovery.
It is only now that Theresa May ends another speech with the quote: ‘Enough is enough.’ But what is her plan?
We have all seen the cowardly way terrorists operate using bombs, vehicles, knifes and so on. So what is the answer?
I think it is time to bring back capital punishment for terrorists, and anyone found to be involved in supporting terrorism should be instantly deported.
I will have upset the civil rights organisations with my comments but it is time to rid this country of terrorists.
Finally, the one thing that worries me is that if the government does not act promptly with this situation that various extremist militant groups in this country will take the law into their own hands by attacking innocent people, many of whom may be Muslims who deplore this situation.
That must not happen.
