BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Three things are certain to follow a terror attack in Britain: Lessons, Solidarity and Lies. ‘Lessons must be learnt’, and its sister platitude ‘now is the time for solidarity’ are uttered in speeches as dead as those they are written to honour. The killer’s motives are lied about because the lies are easier said than the truth: the truth that we have … Continue reading Lessons, Solidarity & Lies
