The grief felt by rank and file officers will be accompanied by a renewed realisation that the tragedy could provide a springboard for other zealots to create mayhem and that officers, now more thinly spread than ever, could be vulnerable especially outside the major cities. The death of a brave officer in the most heavily policed area of the UK will indeed be a cause for concern.
The Tories shambolic U-turn over national insurance contributions has proved that they cannot give Britain the change we need. By breaking a manifesto promise and then backtracking, they have now lost all credibility. You cannot trust a word the Tories say... The Tories' list of broken promises is long, and set to get longer under this failing government. Rather than tackling the challenges we face, all the Tories offer is empty rhetoric and meaningless promises. One can only imagine what the next dishonest pledge and subsequent U-turn will be. With a track record this flaky, who would believe a word they say in the future?
Doubtless both the 'Remainers and Brexiteers' will ignore the very real issues stated above while, if asked to comment, the Home Office will produce its usual bland spin along the lines of; 'the Home Office is committed to strong borders and we are confident we have the resources to cope with all eventualities post Brexit.'
The UK Supreme Court has decided on Brexit by an 8-3 majority that Theresa May's government cannot trigger Article 50 without the consent of Parliamen...
It is irrational to take at face value the reassurance that these systems are safe and reliable today. It is even more so that they will remain so into the future. If our government is to take these risks, which are unavoidable when deploying these systems, it has to be far more honest about those risks and more open with those affected by them.
Instead of reeling off a list of arguments about why the voters deserve a chance to vote on whether the exact type of Brexit we're getting is the one they wanted, I am instead providing you with a warning, from a parallel universe...
Old Dave - our former PM and possible future Secretary-General of NATO-for all the whining from the Left regarding him, has never had a bunch of women coming out claiming he sexually assaulted them. He has never happily declared to a friend that women would allow him to grab them by the vagina due to his celebrity.
There's no silver bullet to this and neither Brexit nor Donald Trump will be able to reverse this trend completely. It remains to be seen if it can even be stymied in the slightest. For all the talk about immigration and outsourcing, there's little airtime devoted to mulling over the wave of automation that is about to engulf the developed world over the next decade.
Like many brands, most successful political narratives are the ones that are memorable - distinctive, tangible and succinct. Positivity is an optional extra. So is truth as of late. Here we look at the top 10 attempts to establish political brands in Britain in the 21st century. Share your own favourite with a quick poll at the end.
"Politics is in such crisis," my friend says as he pulls the cork out from a bottle of Gran Reserva Rioja. Nothing like a cosy dinner party to discuss the ills of society and the wrongs of politics. He was, of course, referring to the impending Brexit, the imminent inauguration of Donald J. Trump - as Donald J. Trump illeistically calls himself, and the apparent rise of the Right. "Scary times," he says while studying the legs.
Like 48% of the British people who voted in the referendum on European Union (EU) membership last June, I wanted the UK to remain in the EU. However, 52% of those who voted wanted to leave. I respect the democracy that exists in our nation and so I was prepared to watch as the UK left the European project.
What a mess, the twists and turns of Brexit must seem bewildering to those outside Britain. "Brexit means Brexit" has been The Prime Minister's catchphrase. As catchphrases go, it is not a bad one. However, now the judges have told her that Brexit means what the British parliament says it means.
Politicians have misused 'integration' to describe assimilation. In doing so, they have given false expectations of what it produces. Migrant groups are consequently misrepresented as isolated and disloyal.
It is over five years since David Cameron stood at the despatch box and announced the Leveson inquiry would begin... Today Secretary of State Karen Bradley announced that the Government is delaying Part Two of the Leveson Inquiry yet again.
For gay marriage I thank decades of LGBT people on the streets, throwing bricks and spilling blood, protesting against policies that treated us like second class citizens. Not a homophobic Tory who did all he could to treat us like second class citizens until he wanted our vote.
If the huge swing to the Liberal Democrats of 19.3% was repeated across the country, it would wipe out Theresa May's majority and hand 26 seats from the Conservatives to the Liberal Democrats.
