Decryption of terror messages and the installation of bollards (News, 11/6/2017) will not stop a suicide bomber from trying to kill people, although they will, for a time, give a false sense of security. Such tactics are therefore a waste of taxpayers’ money. If politicians want to make our streets safe, they should examine the causes for acts of terrorism. British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was the only politician who had the honesty and courage to talk about a link between terrorism and the war on terror led by the US and its allies in Muslim countries. The mainstream news media ignored him.

Commenting ...our policy

We welcome comments, for alternative views and to generate debate. We check comments before they are published, to make sure they are on-topic, family-friendly and in keeping with our publishing principles. To make sure your comments are published, please...

  • stay on topic
  • leave out swear words and bad language
  • be careful not to libel or defame any body
  • do not be -ist: (race, age, sex, etc)
  • avoid posting someone else's copyright material, and
  • concentrate on the factual more than the emotional (though there's room for both)
If your comments stray from these principles, they may not be posted, or may be edited to remove bits we find offending or inappropriate.

If you see something in a comment that you think is objectionable, please let us know your reasons.

We usually post comments at the bottom of articles, with a link off the Home page as well. But we may use them elsewhere, or as a separate article (we also reserve the right to not post them at all, at our sole discretion). See also our Terms of Use and Privacy policies links below.
