A couple of Republican writers that are always worth reading are Danny Morrison, and Deaglan at the Res Publica blog. Both tackle the London bombing this week. Deaglan takes Bernard Crick to task for seeking to blame fallout from the Israel/Palestine conflict as the primary cause of the bombing. Meanwhile, surprisingly for some, Danny Morrison supports the UK’s right to pursue the bombers, but argues that so far too little effort has been made to address the circumstances that give rise to such intense violence.
