    Yes – let s celebrate the International Day of Beheading, Drowning, Hanging and Quartering in the Name of Reason and Enlightenment

    Edit, Simply horrific

    Now sadly it appears that La Republique has been subjected to another terrorist attack tonight in Nice. Media reporting that 60+ people are dead and 100’s injured after a truck ploughed into people celebrating Bastille Day. Nice is a lovely city and the people there are extremely friendly and welcoming. I have been there several times and from speaking to several NI fans who were there for the Euros they too had a great time.

    Attacking the Spirit of the Bastille is unlikely to get the French to roll over .

    Terrorist or freedom fighter???

  • Jag

    Strangely poignant but totally apt video from Casablanca, in light of last night’s atrocity. Defiance in the face of temporarily crippling adversity.

  • Korhomme

    Appropriate. Very prescient.

    And at the First Night of the Proms tonight.

    Careful – next thing you’ll have someone on here trying to trot out the old bs that white terrorists, be they Loyalist or IRA, were somehow morally superior or any more justified in their actions than ‘brown’ terrorists in France.

    My heart goes out to all those who lost their lives or were injured by the actions of one terrorist in France or any of the others like him.
