That was an excellent speech he made. I was reminded of the spirit of the country just after WW2, and the attitude of my parents, both of whom were in the armed forces during the war. I don't think his style was too bombastic or radical, just sincere and heartfelt.
I don't believe for one minute that these terrorists will ever defeat us or make us quake in our boots.
My reaction to Andrew Neil is "Well said!"

Good speech and not knocking the sentiment but has it been confirmed that the attacker was indeed a jihadi yet? He was certainly a criminal with a long record of violence but as far as I know the motive has not yet been established. I think we should wait and see.

I thought Neil's little rant was a cliché ridden piece of self promotion, which was amazingly endorsed by the intellectual Portillo.

It did not address the underlying issues of terrorism and promoted the view that modern terrorism can be fought by turning the other cheek. A mere handful of Jihadists could destroy the operational structure of the UK in weeks, should they wish to do so.

Time to get serious I believe, and to start thinking of the possible rather than the probable, how to we react to chemical or even worse, biological terrorism?

I don't know, ake. In so far as you can ascribe a 'will' to what is essentially a loose affiliation, the will is already there. As far as we can tell, the capability is not. Individuals acting alone with enough patience to fall off the monitoring are almost impossible to stop; anything like a significant biological or chemical attack requires communication and coordination that potentially exposes it to the security services. All of that could change, naturally, but I think Neil's approach of saying let's get things in perspective is the right one. Horrible and appalling as this is, it is tiny compared to many other things in Britain's past, as Andrew Neil's Luftwaffe comment indicates.

I acknowledge Andrew Neil's sharpness and his ability to see through bullshit, but he has a bullying manner with his political guests at times and his little opening polemics are tiresome and egotistical. One particular one, when Castro died, was quite nasty and was not balanced or challenged by the rest of the show's content. I thought the latest one was just a bit of a rant, frankly. Whilst not relevant to this discussion, it's worth mentioning (in my opinion) that he has worked for the Tories and is currently chairman of the group that owns the right-wing Daily Telegraph and The Spectator. Plenty of other right-wing associations during his career.

Mr McGrath.....I know that you know the fight against Islamic Terrorism bears no comparison to our war against "Mr Hitler" and the people who were "London born and bred" have long since packed up their pride and caught a bus to somewhere that they are not robbed by scum landlords and bored to death by the "cultural elite."

Islamic Terrorism does not require the sophisticated communication and coordination mentioned by "D", two or three individuals self infected with for example smallpox or similar infectious disease, should just about do the trick, followed up by numerous warnings of similar attacks all over London or any other large city.

It is simple and deathly effective.

This is something which we have never been called on to resist in the past, a new departure .....people who actually welcome death to advance their purpose.

That goes for xenophobia of all sorts. Amazingly I too object to mass murderers but I do not need an armband to identify me as such.

My children's High School is in the national spot light now over an alleged rape of a 14 year old girl by a 16 year old illegal immigrant in the bathroom.

Fox News screams about the scourge of illegal aliens. Lawyers say there was a consensual act and others call for an end to a sanctuary Stat status.

I WITNESSED A ACTUAL FIST FIGHT in the strip mall when old White guys tell black people to get out of the country. I have seen a pick up truck driver intentionally try to hit a non Trump citizen and succeed. A new age of hate is a real, clear and present danger.

Even here I hear the glee of some who are thrilled the killer was shot dead. I am 'pleased' the situation was resolved but I unlike like some am not quite as pleased as some.

When 'kill the fucker' becomes the first and most favored action, we all face double jeopardy in cases of "friendly fire".

At a glance some of you may bear a resemblance to a Muslim. Who knows maybe you do have it comin. I have already had my share of "kill'em all and let God sort them out.

I have nothing against Muslims - I am married to one, and an immigrant at that. So I'm not Islamophobic.

But if a man deliberately mows down and kills several pedestrians then enters the outside area of the Houses of Parliament and knifes an unarmed policeman to death, it's obvious he will be stopped immediately by the Security forces at hand. And the safest way to stop such a dangerous individual is to shoot to kill. This would pertain in almost any country in the world. It wouldn't matter if he were mentally ill,a jihadist, a Jew, Christian, Muslim or Pagan, white, black, dressed as a pantomime horse or in a tutu. He would be shot, and rightly so.
I normally abhor guns, and do not like to think of our Police having to be armed. However, in this situation and location, it was in my opinion the right thing to do.

" in their wars of imperialist conquest,"
In which case, the world would be full of people hating each other's religions, - murder and exploitation in the name of Christianity, being a front runner in this.
Start pinning the sins of States who have used religion as an excuse for hatred and none of us gets out of here alive.
As late as the early 20th century, 'gallant little Belgium' slaughtered up to ten million Congolese colonials in pursuit of rubber - are the descendants of the people of Leopold or the Christian Church who supported him in line for hatred because of those actions?
Britain built an Empire and exploited a large slice of the planet "with a gun in one hand and a Bible in the other".
Today's Jihadists are fanatics that the west have empowered by inaction and self-interest.
We stood by and watched Assad imprison, torture and murder his people and did nothing - we even voted in our parliament to do nothing - the result being that a tiny bunch of fanatics stepped into the gap, offered the opposition that wasn't forthcoming from the wealthy west and blossomed into a massive threat.
We sell weapons do despots who oppress their people and would rather see dead children carried out of the sea, than offer safety to those fleeing despotism which has been propped up by our arms and our support because "they may be monsters, but they are "our" monsters".   
We fill our shops with goods produced in lethal conditions for slave-level wages because they are cheap, and we sneer at "economic migrants" who try to better the lives of themselves and their families and describe them as a "threat to our way of life"
The wealthy 'Christian' west is very much in need of Dr Christian Barnard's pioneering surgery - we have become totally inured to compassion and humanity.
Islam is no more violent and threatening than any other religion - go look up 'The Evil Bible' if you want the quotes.
In the hands of fanatics, any religion is dangerous and it is at its most dangerous when it attempts to take the moral high ground
Christian terrorism has a track record that goes back centuries and challenges the worst of them, so let's not be too smug and "holier than thou".

I am from England, I am English and I am a Lancashire lad, among other things. I don't know whether we have the best police force or army in the world becauseI haven't been to all the countries in the world and observed their police and soldiers in action. Rather than digging people out in order to eliminate them, I think we should try to promote tolerance and understanding, be better global neighbours and choose our friends carefully. As I'm not a pacifist I agree that we may have to seek out and kill individuals who mean us harm. But this should be a last-ditch measure and we have to recognise that overly aggressive, preemptive measures might have the same outcome as cutting off the Lernaean Hydra's head

Well, you see, Teribus, Andrew Neil and you (who are in total agreement) appear to have jumped the gun. The killer was not on intelligence radar and there is no evidence that he was radicalised in prison. The idea that he was some kind of Islamic jihadist has basically bitten the dust. Seems to me that he was a demented and frustrated loner and that the atrocity was a one-off tragedy brought about by a man who had lost his mind. So easy to jump to premature conclusions, eh?

The BBC site reports: "But Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said that, while Masood "clearly had an interest in Jihad", police had so far found no evidence of an association with the group or al-Qaeda, or that he had discussed his plan with others."

So not ISIS or al-Qaeda if the reporting is accurate. It is surely a matter of opinion with no hard or fast line when someone "with an interest in Jihad" who carries acts like this can fairly be described as a "Jihadist". And, in my view, not a terribly significant debating point.
