Looks like PM Cameron has taken a few pointers from Obama. Leave town when a crisis happens. The Brits have no clue how screwed they are. Laws that don't allow them to carry weapons to defend themselves, police who arrest British citizens for posting anger at Muslims, and arrest British citizens for organizing protests.

To me, this reads like a hatchet job on Cameron.

I think it is. What Cameron should be doing is leading to change laws in
England, so British citizens can carry weapons and protect themselves.
Forming some task force is a weak response.

A well-deserved hatchet job.

I wonder if they both didn't take a few pointers from FDR.

Rumor 'round the campfire was, he knew about the coming attack, but looked the other way and let it happen, to then use it as reason to enter the war. You know, wasn't his idea, they made him. They started it.

Now, we have these latest incidents where so many warning signs were missed or ignored or who knows? Incompetence? Intentional? Maybe as fodder for an attention diversion or for a crisis best not wasted?

Or, are these just the natural consequences of choosing leaders like 20somethings choose the people they'd like to sleep with or party with.

Thank them for what? It was a total failure. How on earth is it possible for the killer, to strut around like a peacock, for that length of time, still holding weapons in his blood soaked hands, conducting street interviews? I don't think that dipstick would try that in Texas.

The Brits are not allowed to carry any weapons...even Mace Spray.
I knew they could not carry firearms but shocked to read they cannot even
carry Mace. That is a country asking for trouble. I am certain others who
could do future harm to British citizens noticed how long it took for armed
police to arrive.

Security or Political Correctness, take your choice. The Brits chose the later and they, along with the French and the Swedes, are paying the price.

Color me not surprised.

The entire british political elite are as rotten to the core as ours are. They are all guilty of importing human debris and setting them loose on their once peaceful streets.

In the very least the Home Secretary and the Head of MI5 should stand down.

Politicians lately are not leaders...they are followers (of opinion polls).

The UK, Sweden, and Europe are at a turning point.

Too soon to draw conclusions.

That said, thinking that parts from reality (like Liberalism) is bound to be destroyed.

Bend o'er Obammy...and kiss yur fanny adieu.

A simple case of workplace violence.
