‘Like a war zone’ London Bridge hero Geoff Ho reveals chilling account of terror attack

I close my eyes and I can still see and hear, crystal clear, everything from that night.

I can actually still taste it in my mouth. The fear.

The adrenaline coursing through my body, propelling my legs forward.

    Great article. Good advice on how to react when muzzles go stabby.

    Thank you Mr. Ho

    • A real Asian, not an “Asian”.

        Without taking anything away from Geoff Ho’s undeniable bravery, I still feel suspicious about why he was chosen for a story. The cynic in me notes that his story fits in neatly with a, “Immigrants are heroic, we need more immigrants in Britain” narrative. I reread the article and now thinks they didn’t do the obvious narrative by telling Geoff’s British immigration story, so even though a “Immigration good” message is still there, it is not overt and possibly not planned.

        • I wouldn’t put anything past them.

          Mr. Ho sounds like a nice fellow (and certainly someone who belongs in decent society). But as templates rather than genuine stories matter these days, this story will come across as a diversity fluff piece. It’s a shame given the heroics of the fellow but the Narrative is the Narrative.

    Geoff Ho wrote: “The attackers stormed in and started yelling, ordering people to “Lie down on the ground! Get down on the ground!” I knew that if anyone did that, they’d be dead.”

    Then we have the police advice given on the day:
    Run – Can’t run as there was no place to run
    Hide – As Geoff says, face down on the floor is a ticket to death
    Tell – When terrorists are kicking in the door and will be inside in moments, the police are only minutes away.

    The experience of previous terrorist attacks is to fight back with anything, as no mercy will be given. Men, you don’t want your last thoughts on how bad your testicles taste in your mouth before your head is cut off.
