Just what we need ... more scaremongering from the Foxnews crew... I'll bet this was top story there all day ignoring the dozens of a Americans killed by guns at the same time!
That was a horrible ordeal in London today and my heart goes out to the families who have suffered a terrible and senseless loss!!
Fewer than ten people have died in Britain in "terrorist" attacks in ten years. In the same period over 21,000 have died on the roads. But commentators seem unable or unwilling to accommodate the conclusion that the threat to the individual from politically motivated attacks is 1/2000th that of the threat from motor cars. On the contrary the news media collaborate with the deranged lunatics who carry out these attacks, and with the deranged right-wing nutcases who will feed their xenophobia on this news, by providing them with the achievement of their objective. Non-stop coverage on the BBC throughout the afternoon. Extended news programmes. Hours of coverage again tonight.
In a mediascape with a sense of perspective, wouldn't the ten o'clock news have been "Five people died today when a man attacked passers-by and police in Westminster. Five people died today in road accidents across Britain. And in sport ..." Of course I'd still not expect any coverage of the murder of expendable foreign civilians in drone attacks etc.
I will never, ever again travel in a car after reading that.
Frankly, anybody who travels in a car is nuts.
In fact, I'm never going to leave the house again, as even if I don't travel in a car and choose to walk or take public transport, I could still be hit by one.
The risk to my life just isn't worth it.
But that leaves me with the risk of electrocution, carbon monoxide poisoning, dying in a fire, falling down the stairs, starvation, and any amount of other risks to my life.
I just don't know what to do!
