Everyone goes to America to make it big. Actors, musicians, athletes...  even David Beckham came to play in LA!

I don't know the numbers but I bet there are more Brit expats in the USA than vice versa.

Stabbing in London:

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-51349664

When are you English folks going to enact some real knife control? Maybe a knife buy-back is in order? At least there was someone on scene with a gun to put an end to the attack.

There wasn't someone on the scene with a gun. The police responded very fast with at least one ARU and the matter was dealt with very rapidly with a minimum of fuss and bullets.

In other words, there was someone on scene with a gun who put an end to the assailant's attack in short order.

Its normal in London. Happens constantly. Testament to the open door immigration policy of Moby's mates in the looney left.

The bloke was/is a Muslim terrorist, having been in prison for same, wearing a fake suicide vest as he was stabbing people, and the corrupt BBC refer it as a 'terrorist-related' incident in the linked article. Why the inverted commas? How is stabbing people 'related' to terrorism? It is terrorism.

Another one the looney left have let out of prison who they shouldnt have done.

Which is a small miracle, because the Police can take up to 10 minutes to arrive.

Worse than that is when a government starts killing their own citizens, such as the Police brutality against yellow vest protestors in France right now.

As governments get more and more corrupt, genocide can happen. Just think of the Red Terror during the Soviet.

Yes, and without gun control, this wouldn't have been a stabbing but a shooting with multiple dead.

The trend is to rent a truck and run a crowd on the sidewalk rather than use a knife or gun. The terrorist wasn't too smart.

That’s FALSE, in fact the opposite is true.

A shooter went in to a church in Texas hoping to murder a lot of people.

Instead his life was quickly ended.

At that concert in France, which has gun control, how many people were murdered?

Usual daft comments

Americans STILL think having a gun would have 'prevented' the incident....conveniently forgetting FAR more Americans are killed by Americans with......guns..


Then we have the Manny's of this world who would blame all 'Muslims' and have them thrown out....when only 25 years ago Irish 'terrorists' were still causing havoc.

The inverted commas by the BBC ?..

1/ await Police report...finding of cause / seeking fact?

2/ I used the inverted commas re Irish 'terrorist' as many  Irish and N.Americans thought Brits were 'occupiers'..



Moby needs to repeat

a) I do not condone the taking of life for a 'cause' with the victims are civilians

b) As usual...the 'leftie' tag is more of an insult as it is pure ignorance...based on my background of seeing 'Irish terrorism' and how it changed my life and caused my family to move..

'Accuracy to detail', eh, Manny?


Some of THE most shocking acts of violence the UK has seen have been committed by white folk from nr. where my uncle ( and latterly) Manny has chosen to live..or near me in Gloucester..The West family..

Let’s ban cell phones while we’re at it.

In fact far more people die while texting and driving, or cause accidents which result in death and injury, than people die from a criminal using a gun.

Clearly cell phones are evil and must be banned. It doesn’t matter that millions of people use cell phones properly, the only choice is to make everyone suffer for the actions of a few bad actors.

See how that works? We’re not even remotely interested in your STUPID arguments and STUPID logic.

The number of teens who are dying or being injured as a result of texting while driving has skyrocketed as mobile device technology has advanced. Researchers at Cohen Children's Medical Center in New Hyde Park estimate more than 3,000 annual teen deaths nationwide from texting and 300,000 injuries.
