The bereft family of executed soldier Lee Rigby today described how they saw the soldier's body on television and spent 12 hours trying to contact him before they were told he was dead.

The machinegunner and Drummer, 25, who recently served in Afghanistan, was run over and then hacked to death at 3pm on Wednesday by Islamist fanatics as he walked back to his south-east London barracks.

His step-father Ian Rigby sobbed today as he admitted his heart had 'skipped a beat' when he realised the murder was in Woolwich and feared it 'could be my son'.

'As soon as it was on the telly we were attempting to get hold of Lee, obviously we couldn’t and it was the middle of the night probably when we got confirmed to us it was Lee,' he said.

Politicians the world over aren’t going to do anything about this. This won’t change until citizens decide to change it. Islam is not a religion of peace.

They weren’t Islamic fanatics at all. They are just your run-of-the-mill Muslims.

Will this family ever realize that their son was murdered by a Parliament that imported wild animals from Africa and set them loose on the streets of London? Probably not. The denial runs deep. The English are being tossed in to the rubbish bin of history by their own treasonous countrymen.

They aren’t Muslim fanatics, but simply good Muslims doing what Allah has been telling these barbarians to do for the past 1400 years via Mohammed (piss be upon him).

Unethical/immoral, pagan monotheism is what they follow.

Britain needs a few guys like Paul Kersey to thin out the herds of muslim animals.

unfortunately we are as well by our liberal democrats dumping muslims, africans and mexicans onto all/of us nd claiming they aren’t creating any problems and blaming us, the victims.

how long do we put up with it before it’s too late. thats the question.

haul them out for dereliction of duty and violating the oath to defend and protect the country and constitution. seriously. they are tanking the country and putting us in harm’s way, on purpose.

No we're not.

But our politicians and bureaucrats are certainly no better than theirs.

Royal Navy sailors taken hostage by Iran, 2007. Note that the female sailor is wearing an Islamic head scarf. The three men on the right who are scowling and not smiling and waving are to be admired.

When I saw the photo of Rigby in his ceremonial uniform, Mark Knopfler’s “Piper to the End” started running through my mind....still is.
