Two tweets from the British Transport Police and the Metropolitan Police after the terrorist attack in London yesterday highlight the deadly weakness of the British state.

Now I can understand the desire not to create unecessary panic, but when seven people are killed and several dozen more are left in critical condition after being crushed by a van or viciously stabbed by three Muslim terrorists, calling it an “incident” is Orwellian to me.
In the second case, yes running to avoid a dangerous situation is almost always the best option, but when facing murderous Islamists the notion of “surrendering” or “negotiating” shouldn’t even be part of the thought process, fighting back you’re forced to should be. The one act of resistance to the bloodthirsty barbarians that I came across was that chairs were thrown at them. This is better than nothing. If possible its best to use the heaviest object you can swing to use as a weapon. If all else fails you must use your legs to front or side kick an assailant, you don’t want to get any closer, especially if they have a knife.
The idea of self-defense appears to have been thoroughly removed from the public pronouncements of the organizations ostensibly in charged with keeping public safety. At this point I think the advice to “run” is appropriate, as far away from London as you can if you think “incidents” like this are going to stop anytime soon.
