I'm, as usual in these incidents, at a loss to understand how the plebs can believe they are off to get their 40 virgins in paradise. If that was the case, wouldn't their masters be scrambling to be head of the queue.
It's also 4th anniversary of Lee Rigby's death and some groups love to commit crimes on anniversaries. 
I think it was the IRA who coined the phrase, "We only have to be lucky once. You have to be lucky every time."
Time to stay calm and let justice run its course.
RIP those poor kids.

Of course they have. 

They always do.

This clown has probably never been anywhere near a training camp in Pakistan or Afghanistan and wouldn't know an IS commander if he popped up in his bedroom and shouted "Alluah Akhbar" at him but they'll still claim ownership of this.

Because it benefits them to do so.

ISIS isn't so much an organisation as a philosophy.

And that's where the real problems lie when idiots like Trump start banging on about "smashing" ISIS.

You can't.

It's like trying to smash water. But it's a useful slogan if you're trying to get scared racists to vote for you.

i can't say too much obviously but my Hospital was on major alert last night and is dealing with a lot of the kids who were injured.
Manchester is now my home and i'm so proud of everyone here, from the taxi drivers taking people home for free, the people living nearby offering somewhere to go if they were stuck and of course to all the many healthcare professionals who just turned up at the site or Hospitals to offer their help. I was half expecting to be called in as well as i deal with procurement of medicines in the Pharmacy.

Targeting a concert that they knew would be mainly full of children is despicable and as low as you can get, as a parent my heart goes out to anyone who has kids or loved ones who has been affected by this

I managed to get to sleep about half two this morning (not complaining, im grateful i could go to sleep knowing my loved ones where safe knowing others werent so fortunate)

I was in a rush getting ready this morning and headed off down to rugby at 5am.

Listening to radio 2, half way down the m6, i think it finally sunk in and im not ashamed to say i got upset.

It is absolutely senseless and nothing to do with religion.  Many of the nurses and doctors treating the injured last night will of been muslim and im thankful for them.

What im not thankful for is people scare mongering and condemning and categorising people due to their beliefs anf labelling them as all the same.

And for the second time today im sat staring at the tv in utter disbelief as the second victim is confirmed as an 8 year old.  My son is 8.  I just can't beleive it

One of the first named dead, Georgina Callender, played for BWFC under 11 ladies team. That brings this appalling tragedy closer to home when we we can say that one of our own has lost her life

Words fail me to say any more.

Bolton Wanderers Football Club is shocked to hear that Georgina Callander has been the first victim named in the horrific attack at Manchester Arena.
Georgina played in the club's Under-11s ladies team in 2010 under the management of Jayne Jackson, who still works at Bolton Wanderers Community Trust.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family during this awful time of loss.
Georgina and all will be remembered at our Annual Memorial Service tonight.
There will also be a minute’s silence before the first team ladies' friendly against Wigan Athletic tomorrow evening at Macron Stadium, where the team will wear black armbands.
Club Chaplain Phil Mason

Just 18 years old.

US officials say that the suspected #ManchesterAttack bomber has been identified by British authorities as Salman Abedi

Brit Abedi was born in December 1995 in Manchester.

He is believed to be of Libyan origin and has at least three siblings.

I wonder if his siblings knew what he was up to, or more importantly failed to speak up? I wonder if we'll ever know?
Furthermore his parents were Libyan refugees, no mother has a terrorist son but every terrorist son has a mother, as the saying goes.
All this shit has only just started. As an adage cockroaches can withstand nuclear fall out, destroy ISIS in its home but the cockroaches will still be there!!

Whilst I don't agree with some of the comments made which blame an entire religion, I found myself getting very angry at the news this morning and feeling like I needed to see some form of retribution for what had happened.

This feels much different to other terror attacks, perhaps because it is closer to home, or the fact that I knew people who had gone with there young children or maybe because I have children of an age similar to those at the concert.

Sat here now typing this my overriding feeling is one of anger, we live in a tolerant society, however perhaps we need to question just how much we tolerate.

I have never felt this way before however I fear that many others feel the same, perhaps as much as we would like to deny that terrorism can affect us, events like last night will inevitably change society.

Whether the changes are for the better or worse who knows.

I was at Victoria station in London when the 7/7 attacks took place and I have two sons who were working in London. The closer you are the more it affects you but we shouldn't let these terrible acts change our society.

At the risk of being accused of racism one of the underlying problems we are dealing with is the idea that we should adapt to the culture of immigrants rather than them adapting to our culture. Most immigrants do integrate but there are areas where this has not happened and these are often the areas where some people are most susceptible to extremist Islamic ideas.

Multiculturalism doesn't work to quote former CRE chief Trevor Phillips https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwi8mo2J3obUAhXMKcAKHXlEB7wQFggkMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theguardian.com%2Fuk-news%2F2015%2Fmar%2F16%2Ftrevor-phillips-race-multiculturalism-blog&usg=AFQjCNGCA2bzN43v0_-elkCp0sWTQE4ywQ&sig2=5XQzVFjGfkgjFZTTSxBv7Q

Not surprising.

Bomb maker on the loose.

More to come the authorities are clearly fearing.

As horrific as it was some sick mind cleverly planned and executed this butchery.

Pray we get them before their next attack.

As the security level heightened, we were informed that Operation Temperer had been activated. This allows for military personnel to assist civil powers with armed response. The military types are trained and up to spec so you might see the odd armed pongo floating around. 
I think it's about time we had a very serious chat with Saudi Arabia.

The UK terrorism threat level has been reduced from critical to severe, Prime Minister Theresa May has said.
The change indicates an attack is highly likely, not imminently expected.
Soldiers deployed to support the police will be stood down on Monday night, at the close of the bank holiday weekend.
Earlier on Saturday, police evacuated an area of Moss Side in Manchester, in a search linked to Monday's bomb attack at the Manchester Arena which killed 22 people and left scores injured.

I'm guessing that they have caught the bomb maker.

Not a bit too premature regardless?

It's only 5days since it happened.

I wish you were right Sluffy, but I suspect that they're pulling in people with connections to the criminal who carried out the bombing. I have a horrible suspicion that the evil men who masterminded it will not be found.

I wouldn't be surprised if the intelligence services have either known more about the people involved/caught, than we have been told, or their processes have been far more efficient than we would have been aware of. Either way, I bet the ones involved were shocked at how quickly they were rounded up. Good in its way, and a warning to future terrorists that they are playing in a very serious world, where anything goes, when it comes to catching them.

Totally agree however the Al Sauds will talk all day long and play the oil card if necessary, but it's the ones they can't control that are equally the problem. Plus the US and others have vested interest in Saudi Arabia so we couldn't really threaten them in isolation. Which brings it back to what Trump does.
