In the hours that followed Friday’s terrorist attack on London Bridge in which the terrorist responsible Usman Khan was shot dead by armed police, far-right gammon were circulating on social-media a fake Jeremy Corbyn tweet which implied Corbyn was critical of the police shooting dead Usman Khan. Though it might have been gullible gammon who were circulating a fake Jeremy Corbyn tweet implying he was critical of the police shooting dead Usman Khan, I strongly suspect the fake tweet originated from whatever dark propaganda department there is within the Tory election campaign apparatus, it’s not as it would be the first time during the GE2019 that the Tories had been spreading fake news.
Corbyn in the past has been critical of the police’s shoot to kill policy & I’m glad he has been particularly when thinking of cases such as Jean Charles de Menezes & Mark Duggan, but in regards to the police shooting dead Usman Khan, well if anybody had bothered to tune in this morning to Sky News’s Sophy Ridge On Sunday program they’d of seen an interview with Jeremy Corbyn where he said the police were perfectly justified in shooting dead Usman Khan. The police were indeed perfectly justified in shooting Usman Khan as he had already killed two people & looked as if he was going to try to kill more by triggering what looked very much like a suicide vest, there are however serious questions surrounding why the security services weren’t keeping closer tabs on an individual who’d already been convicted of terrorist offences & in fact had been sentenced to indeterminate prison sentence, so yeah why the fuck was this loon allowed out of prison as early as he had been? Well you’re not going to get any credible answers from Boris Johnson as his only answer for the London Bridge terrorist attack is to blame Labour.
Whilst Jeremy Corbyn was being interviewed this morning on Sky News’s Sophy Ridge On Sunday, Boris Johnson was being interviewed on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show & oh fuck me it was a car crash interview, some people might remember Piers Morgan’s interview on CNN with far-right shock Alex Jones from a few years back, well Marr’s interview with Boris was reminiscent as Boris essentially loudly waffled on regardless of any questions Marr was asking him refusing to take any responsibility for Tory government possibly having been able to prevent the London Bridge terrorist attack rather he did what the Tories always seem to do which of course is to blame Labour, this is despite the fact Labour haven’t been in government for almost a decade. Hey it wasn’t Labour who drastically cut policing numbers, it wasn’t Labour who have been trying to privatise the Probation Service, it’s not been Labour who’ve had a decade to bring tougher terrorist prevention & yet haven’t, all of which we can now see is putting lives at risk, I mean what nutty brown crazed capitalist bullshit is outsourcing the probation service what next out sourcing GCHQ to a Chinese telecoms corporation.
Boris Johnson is using the London Bridge terrorist attack to propose tougher prison sentences for terrorists which I doubt many would disagree with, oh wait you thought that Boris & the Tories weren’t going to use the London Bridge terrorist attack to electioneer, hey never be foolish enough to hold the Tories in high esteem nor foolish enough to think the Tories wouldn’t go as far as killing people to win an election, don’t you find it suspiciously coincidental & convenient that during both the 2017 & 2019 General Election campaigns when the Tories are starting to coming under pressure & are starting to sag in the polls there are suddenly terrorist attacks for them to take advantage of on the election trail. Even if the London Bridge terrorist attack wasn’t a false flag & I’m definitely not saying it was just posing the question it could be, at the very least the Tory government with Boris Johnson at the helm have failed to in the first duty of any government which is keeping its citizens safe because they’ve wanted to do policing & security on the cheap.
