London Bridge is NOT Falling Down.
The stiff upper lip was in full play. One fellow actually returned to the pub he was patronizing at the time of the attack to pay his bill and provide a tip.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan told people, “Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. There’s no reason to be alarmed.”
Donald Trump, of course, used the occasion to engage in fear-mongering by twisting Khan's remarks.
"At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'"
Of course, Khan is one of those despicable Muslims.
I like this comment from a Londoner who works a few doors away from the terrorist attack.
"It happened, and I can't do anything about that. But what I can do is go into work on Monday as usual. And on Thursday I can go out and vote. And if you're reading this and you're British, please, please, use your vote. These attacks try to make us afraid, so afraid we'll make little cages for ourselves in our own minds. Don't let that happen. Whatever your view on how we should run the country, make sure that those in power can see that people care about what happens next. Because I think that give us our best shot of making a future that is a bit better and a bit fairer for everyone."
