I've lost count of the number of times that I've dodged unexploded grenades walking across the fields of Serre or spotted tangles of rusting barbed wire in the soil. Exploring the battlegrounds is a multi-sensory experience and the pulse of war is always tangible, just below the surface.

When the extent of violence you have witnessed is an Irishman trying to impale Red Devils with their own inflatable tridents and you've spent the day dancing with people you have never met while singing the OG lyrics of Gala "Freed From Desire," where Will Grigg isn't on fire and no one's defence is terrified yet you start to realise these fans transcend the game of football for the better....

Atrocities Such as Brussels May Make Us Pause - But They Must Never Make Us Stop

This is the world we live in, and perhaps it is right that we are more aware of how vulnerable we are. However although this reality may make us pause, it must not make us stop. We must mourn those who have died, provide help and solidarity to those who have survived, and track down all perpetrators of this evil. But we must also carry on as normal, be who we are, and be the society that we are... So we must stand up, one and all and be counted. We are Paris, we are Brussels, and we are Britain. We are united by a culture that is the best, the most free and the most successful on the planet. We should say it and we should be prepared to defend it. And I hope that we will.

Dr Chris Allen

I do believe in today's Britain more people are beginning to understand that those wanting to divide us are not only a tiny minority but more importantly, are not the same as the vast majority of British Muslims. If you want evidence of this, remind yourself of the uniquely British put down, 'you ain't no Muslim bruv'.

If we turn this into arguments - if we use this as an excuse to turn on each other - they have won. We cannot let that happen. This is the time that politics is put aside. This is the time that we unite against these people.This isn't a day for political argument. This is not a day we'll let them win. We will never let them win. Today, people have lost their lives. And we must stand united against the people who have murdered them. We cannot ever let them win.
