I don't know how much truth there is in the speculation that today's incident in Woolwich was a terrorist attack. Maybe it was, maybe it was two bampots trying to be big men. Who can say? All I know for sure is that a man has been murdered in a singularly gruesome way.
Leave out the religious thing. Hell, my neighbours are Muslims. The dad drives a cab, the mam raises the kids, they get on with us. She's got a beautiful lawn that one. If these acts of violence were "a Muslim thing" as the papers would have you believe then why's my neighbour not down Radnor Gardens bombing the bowling green? It's bollocks.
What it is is individuals who made a choice - for whatever reasons - to bring violence to our streets. Those individuals might claim a religious motive, a political motive, but at the end of the day they spilled blood in the streets of my damn city.
The EDL have gone down to Woolwich since. They have no place there. A bunch of drunkards looking for the least excuse to spill more blood in my city. They can get the fuck out.
Condolences to the guy's family, and to all the families who are going to be swept up in this bullshit.
