The Attack in London and returning to the Real Issues

Let us make no mistake about it, terrorist attacks do not come out of thin air. There is always an action and a reaction and if British support of Saudi launching its’ own terrorist attacks on Yemen, one of the world’s poorest countries, is not enough to engender a reaction, then there is Bahrain, Israel, and countless other places throughout the globe. It is ongoing, it is continuous, and it didn’t start yesterday. But, then only a half-wit would think it did.

Nevertheless, even if it was not unexpected, yesterday’s attack in London was a tragedy and our immediate sympathies must go to those innocents who were injured and lost their lives. Moreover, before the conspiracy theorists start waving their false flag theories, they were, possibly the victims of a misguided religious nutter who believed that he was exercising some divine being’s will. Although, with it now being contended that Khalid Masood, 52, who was born in Kent and had previously been convicted of violent offences, was the perpetrator, it might even be that the elaborate modifiers are surplus to requirements and  what we have here is a simple nutter.

Still, even if that is not going to suit the establishment’s narrative, anyone else being behind yesterday’s attacks is about as likely as Thatcher having given Galtieri the green light to invade the Falklands. Still, didn’t Maggie milk that one, and with the BBC cancelling all of its normal programmes today, we are privy to the most disgusting pathos and “Durchhalteparolen” coming from the very same people who do indeed support Britain’s criminal actions in the Middle East and elsewhere. There might be no resurrection of the “Better Together” campaign when it comes to another Scottish referendum, but the message is already out there, the narrative is already set, and, with Article 50 and the Brexit also about to be triggered, the flags are already flying.

Certainly,there should be no false flag theories, but we should also not be waving a unin jacks. There was a tragedy yesterday in London, but the way that tragedy is being used and the jingoism that is already following on its’ heels is as old as the hills, and with ‘Blighty’s’ very own “Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda”, the BBC, going into overdrive, it remains important to concentrate on the real stories and the real issues. Back to those in the Scottish parliament on Tuesday, but one wonders if the remnants of empire in Westminster will ever be able to return to them. With the Brexit negotiations and a probable Scottish referendum coming up it will certainly make interesting watching. However, let’s hope that we can connect to the real story.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
