I want to say one thing specifically to the world today. This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty and the powerful. It was not aimed at Presidents or Prime Ministers. It was aimed at ordinary, working-class Londoners, black and white, Muslim and Christian, Hindu and Jew, young and old. It was an indiscriminate attempt to slaughter, irrespective of any considerations for age, for class, for religion, or whatever.

Livingstone’s comment on yesterday’s terror attack was the most heartfelt I saw. The man was quite clearly on the edge of rage and sadness as he was making this statement and I’m amazed he didn’t just break down and start screaming obscenities.
Please have a read of his full statement, linked above. It’s worth reading.
