We must never become anaesthetised to terrorism – McCandless

1 Mins read

Once again terrorism has stalked the streets of France. This time in Nice the capital of the Riviera. The local newspaper Nice – Matin has reported that the French Tunisian responsible for the lorry attack while people were celebrating Bastille day, had firearms and grenades with him in the vehicle.

The truck careered for hundreds of metres crashing into people whilst those around them heard the dull empty thuds resonating as all they could do was run from the scene or stand crying helplessly as they witnessed a scene of carnage unfolding before their eyes.

The French have patriotic pride in their nation and their motto of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity was born when the Bastille was stormed on 14/7 1789. This determination and resolve will sustain them through this tragedy.
The French Prime Minister has called for 3 days of National mourning after 84 people have been killed in Nice and our own P.M. Theresa May is to call a meeting of Cobra.
We who suffered greatly at the hands of terrorists in our Province must stand with the citizens of France against terrorism. Extremism from whatever source spawns terrorism.

George Orwell famously quoted – ” The object of terrorism is terrorism. The object of oppression is oppression. The object of torture is torture. The object of murder is murder. Now do you begin to understand me? ”
It is not enough to cut off the branches of terrorism, it must be pulled up by the roots.
There is no place for it in our modern society.
