Now even after studying multiple modules on such topics during my degree I would never say I am even close to having a well rounded knowledge of our parliamentary matters. However after loosing faith in our system following the positive decision to Brexit, although the terror attack yesterday was absolutely devastating, it has brought some faith to both myself and others.
I am writing this whilst the prime minister is currently giving her statement on the attack and firstly my thoughts go deeply to the families of those who have lost their lives and who are injured.
It is immediately obvious how supportive the whole country has become of our police force and emergency services both for their part in the actually attack and for their response following, resulting in in 8 arrests at present.
I feel compelled to express my thoughts on the currently solidarity of our country and as May has just stated “This response shows we will never give in to terrorism”. This comes from the unity of parliament and all ministers that decided not to be beaten by such an attack.
I agree with Conservative MP Gavin Barwell where he has written in his blog “there is more that unites us than divides us.” Although the country may be divided on many things including the decision to leave the EU, it is times such as this that we show our strength and I am proud of those willing to carry on in the aftermath of terrorism in order to show these attacks will not prevail.
I know this post is slightly different to the usual, but I think it’s important to talk about these things. Any thoughts?
