    “Vibrancy” kills.
    There are no two-ways about it.

    • New word – Vibranced – to be killed by Muslims

      i.e “He was vibranced in a Muslim terror attack.”

    Using a controlled explosion on “a suspicious bag” is a bit over the top.
    Couldn’t they just ban the burka?

    Oh come on.
    We all know that after months of investigation there’ll be nothing to do with islam, eh?

  • And you thought that the IRA was bad, Britain.

    • tom_billesley

      The IRA planted a bomb that damaged Hammersmith Bridge in 1939, the Provisional IRA planted a large Semtex bomb that fizzled in 1996, and the Real IRA planted a bomb that damaged the bridge in 2000.

      • The IRA was also universally reviled unlike the “diverse” elements in Rotherham, for example.

    yay, diversity
