This has got to stop now! We can’t afford to keep losing innocent civilians like this.
Almost all, if not absolutely all, atrocities we have seen in recent times have been committed by people previously known to the security services. They do an incredible job but are working under huge pressure and greater funding should be made available to them to improve surveillance of those known to be harbouring extremist views and to gather sufficient evidence for prosecutions.
If there are concerns, they must be acted upon.
We also need a harder line against hate preachers who have got to have the oxygen of hatred sucked out of the lungs. There is also a need to stamp out the growing issue of radicalisation within our prisons.
Furthermore, any foreign national convicted of any heinous crime should be deported after serving their sentence and such criminals who have dual nationality should be stripped of their British citizenship.
In normal life we put up with having liberties curtailed and often seemingly draconian measures imposed on the majority as protection against the actions of the few, well it’s time this attitude covered this situation. We must stop pussy footing around!
