The savage who killed 22 people and injured dozens more, including many children, has a name. Salman Abedi, a 23-year old British-born Libyan had already been in Libya, and was on the terror watchlist along with his brother, but was let back into the country! So our security forces seem to know less about this attack than the US press, but we're being told to keep calm and have a cup of tea?! I spoke to Douglas Murray, associate director of the Henry Jackson Society, about why this Islamist threat requires a much greater response.
Election campaigned was suspended today. I say we should go further and cancel the election. It's only going to be a coronation for Theresa May anyway, and I say we are at war, so we need a government of national unity! UKIP leader Paul Nuttall says his party will start campaigning again tomorrow, and will go hard on Islamism. I spoke to UKIP MEP and adviser to Nuttall Patrick O'Flynn, to hear how his party will respond.
