Isn’t it time we stopped pussy footing around?

The UK has been rocked by four terror attacks in 2017, with the most recent attack taking place at Parsons Green tube station last month. But despite this string of attacks, relatively few people have been killed by terrorist attacks in the UK in recent years says the Telegraph.

Then the Telegraph wrote this:-
Since 2000, there have been seven deaths per year in the UK due to terrorism – which, according to research from BuzzFeed, means you’re more likely to be killed by dogs (18 deaths per year), hot water (100 deaths per year) or using your phone while driving (2,920 deaths per year).

Good to know that death has a relative number where it’s not really important enough to protest about. That number apparently hasn’t been reached this year so those who lost loved ones should take solace that only they died because of terrorist action. That and it could have been worse.

Hard to fathom? It is for me.

The inescapable fact is all the murders were all carried out by followers of Islam!
Whoops, shouldn’t say that should we.
That’s not politically correct in any way whatsoever.
Only it’s the inconvenient truth the security services and press are forced to keep quiet about just in case it offends the minority that follows this alien faith in this predominately Christian country. They both seemingly hamstrung by a government ‘Rules of engagement and reporting’.

It’s also going to upset the UK government who also haven’t got the balls to tell it the way it is. They also scared stiff to pursue the enemies of the people lest they are accused of being racist or multi-faith intolerant.

Or am I wrong.

    And how many wounded?

    • You know I never asked and they never said.
      Does that make a difference?
      After all the press talk about life changing injuries the whole time now.
      Truth is, coming under fire, being bombed, or just seeing the carnage changes your perspective on things. Usually for life.

      For some it makes them introspective, others brash, a few remain scared for ever, a few get mad, hot mad, and some? Well for some demons come in your sleep.

      So does it matter?

        Yes it does. The claim is that the number of people killed is so low as to be “insignificant”. But a lot of these terrorist acts are “inefficient”; that is the number of wounded is much greater than the number killed. Add in property damage and perhaps they are not so easily “ignored”.

      • Interesting though isn’t it.
        How the media only report death.
        There again, if there are kids and especially babies involved, every sticking plaster injury is listed as life changing.

        Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the press actually reported the whole story accurately for once.
