Update from London - 06/05/2017

London Terror and the General Election
"Don't worry, darling, I wouldn't bite the hand that feeds 


A mini-documentary I made about the terror attacks on London Bridge and in Borough market last night, and how they fit into a pattern throughout this election campaign. I summarise events over the last few months, their political relevance and why the conventional explanations do not fit with what we know about these terrorist incidents.

Jeremy Corbyn calls for Theresa May to resign as Prime Minister for presiding over police cuts while Home Secretary

The Labour leader said he backed similar calls by 'very responsible' people who are 'very worried' about her record

The cutting of 20,000 police officers on the Prime Minister's watch has become a millstone around her neck – and one that the Labour leader is using to his advantage

Multiple eyewitnesses said that community police officers fled from Borough Market in London after seeing two men with knives stabbing people as part of a terror attack Saturday.

These eyewitnesses told The Guardian’s Lisa O’Carroll that two men started stabbing people outside a restaurant in Borough Market, close to where the first terror attack took place on London Bridge, resulting in multiple fatalities.

I saw two guys with big knives downstairs outside Roast. They were stabbing people,” the eyewitnesses said.

Perhaps the most jarring part of the testimony was a report that, instead of running to the stabbing to stop it, the police turned around and ran the other way.
The police were running away, they were community police. They were normal officers, they were running away,” the eyewitnesses said.

With the police out of sight, onlookers began yelling “stop, stop” and throwing chairs.

But then police arrived at the scene and “shot straight way.”

Police community support officers (PCSOs) operate usually in a paid, full-time role, and while “PCSOs do not have the same powers as regular police officers, they still carry a lot of responsibility, and are a critical part of the police service.”

More than 90 percent of police officers in London do not carry guns and instead carry mace, handcuffs, batons and, on occasion, a stun gun.

Mere hours after the events took place on London Bridge and at Borough Market, Metropolitan Police labeled them as terror attacks
