    We don’t need platitudes like ‘Enough is Enough’ from people like Theresa May. We need action – Deportation and/or Internment.

    Also you need to heed that the terrorists actually said “This is for My Family” as they stabbed the victims. If you took the trouble to actually read the relevant verses of the Koran in the original then you would know that these horrendous acts are seen by the perpetrators as a defense in battle against Western/Israeli aggression, and the Corbyn strategy is correct in this matter.
