    Consistency. Terrorism almost requires a greater response than a perceived one off attack by a 'mentally ill' person.
    It was a one off attack, though -- unless you can point to another instance of this happening? What it quite clearly is not is part of any co-ordinated campaign on the part of anyone.

    If by 'terrorism' you just mean 'politically motivated', it may very well have been, but I don't know what 'greater response' you'd like to see, given that this cannot (so far) be linked to anyone beyond the attacker.

    **** off.



    What difference does it make?

    Why are people so concerned with buzzwords?
    I don't particularly care what people call it. As far as I'm concerned this is a tragic loss of a mother and wife and family member. It's just interesting to see how people react differently to different perpetrators

    Sad event. I disagree with her political views but no human deserves to be killed for having an opinion.

    National Socialism is the technical term for Nazism (German: Nationalsozialismus). Try telling someone that Hitler was left wing.
    It depends, if both left/right wing are extreme variants of socialism and center is capitalism, then ok, but otherwise...

    How do you know he was a Britain first supporter ffs? We dont know if thats true yet.


    I dont think you understand how reality and facts work. You keep suggesting he wasnt mentally ill despite an article that is 6 years old with quotes directly attributed to the murderer himself talking about his mental health issues.

    Its not up for debate unless you think the journalist who wrote this 6 year old article is lying and fabricated the interview (We are entering Bush did 9/11 realms of conspiratarding here)
    you are such a hypocrite its unreal :rofl:

    I mean, no one has any idea as to his motive just yet given the police haven't released any information regarding their investigation as to his motive. So I'm not sure how you can say one motive is more likely than the other. Because..you literally have no idea like the rest of us. Unless you're just speculating of course.
    Thats the whole point i have been making from the start ffs. There are multiple rabid people itt making out this was a far right leave attacker. We simply dont know yet. I am countering people with the only reasonable thing we have so far which is that this man has a history of mental health issues

    Wasn't Breivik a national socialist?
    Meh, I think a lot of it was just plagiarized from various different sources.

    Who says the murder was down to his mental illness if he even had one?

    Just stop doing what you guys always do by trying to depoliticise terrorist attacks by the far right.

    He is white and shouted "Britain First" according to a witness.

    Bit like if he was brown and shouted Allah Akbar, you would have no problem calling him a Muslim Fanatic.

    Maria Eagle MP has tweeted that the attacker, a 52-year old male now under arrest, shouted "Britain First".

    If this was some political act by a Leaver, it's an appalling thing and true fascism at work.

    Nobody is saying it was down to his mental illness.. i am saying it is likely given the little information we have. I am not trying to depoliticise anything, i am simply countering rabid mouthbreathers who are fabricating lefty fantasy narratives like yourself and Fullofsurprises based on sweet FA evidence other than your agenda

    This is both a tragedy and an absolute disgrace. Apparently we're now the kind of country that has political killings.

    Yes I am aware.

    Aamir Tahir, of The Dry Clean Centre, said: "The lady I work with heard two loud bangs but I wasn't there, I was stuck in traffic at the time. I wish I was there because I would have tried to stop him. The whole street thinks it was me but it wasn't. Apparently the guy who did it shouted 'Britain first' and if I had been there I would have tackled him."

    It just didn't seem like a reliable source to me.

    I don't see how race has anything to do with this. Regardless of whether it was a Muslim or not, I wouldn't make assumptions based of a single sketchy eyewitness report.
