Surely with our state of alert now being 'critical' it's time to ship out anyone we have intelligence on. I know there are probably a hundred more for every one, but we've got to start somewhere.

I'm down in London for Trooping the Colour in a few weeks (if it still happens) and four days later i'm there again with a party of 10/11 year olds. We were due to visit parliament but it looks like that now won't happen.

I'm okay about me and my husband being down there but being responsible for someone else's children is a whole different kettle of fish.

What upset me most about the Manchester bombing is the normality of everyone involved, parents picking their kids up after a concert, teenagers there for a great night listening to music, having a great time, only for it to end like that.

I'm deeply saddened and extremely angry. I worry for my children and their children beyond that.

I totally agree with this post. The sentiments of the last three paras represent my shock and anger.

But, without it being a "witch-hunt", the first paragraph is the key one. We MUST be aware. I don't know how many of you went through the IRA bombings on the mainland (I was involved in one of them) though I do know a couple who lost loved ones in the July 2005 terrorist attack in London, but vigilance became a way of life.

In many ways, H&S has made us sloppy about personal responsibility. No-one thought that some sick person would target such young people and the responsible parents who went to pick them up. Sadly and tragically, Manchester has given us a wake-up call.

Not sure where you want to ship people to as a lot of the UK terrorists are British!!

It's all so sad as a mother of teenage girls I just want to scoop them up and hug them tight.

My heart goes out to anyone who has been caught up in it all.

I just hope people a lot cleverer than me can figure out how to stop radicalisation of a small minority of our young people.

Our Belgian neighbours on this site in Languedoc had clearly rehearsed their English to say how sorry they were about Manchester.
Other English campers have reported the same, from French people. Stronger together.

I'm doing vol work in the centre of Manchester today, and we went across to St Ann's square for the silence. You could have heard a pin drop in the whole area, thousands of people came out of work to be there. At the end of the silence balloons were released from over the Arndale Centre. It was all very moving.

I wish the media had the common decency to not show close ups of grieving relatives.
Nobody needs to see that .... we can all imagine what its like.

Good point, Alan29. At what stage does reporting in the public interest become voyeurism or intrusion into personal grief? Something the media would do well to ponder, I think.

Yesterday I was one of the thousands who took part in the Great Manchester Run. I can only say what a fabulous experience it was. Respect for the victims and emergency services was very high on the organisers tributes but once you got out on the course, it was the people and spirit of Manchester which was in the forefront.

It'll work out in the end!!!!


I didn't do it !! Nobody saw me do it !! You can't prove anything !!
