UPDATED: London Bridge “Terror Attack”

The breaking news right now is an alleged “terrorist attack” on London Bridge. The story as reported so far is a man, wearing a “hoax suicide vest”, attacked and stabbed several people near the north end of London bridge.

The man was set upon by the public, disarmed and held until armed police arrived, at which point he was shot dead.

There is video, it is hardly graphic, but if you’re easily disturbed by violence this is your fair warning:

It has been confirmed by the police that man was unarmed and restrained when he was shot. Which appears to be the case in the video.

It is now being reported that two of the (as yet unknown number of) victims have died of their wounds. No names or other information is currently available.

Another video – available here on the Mirror’s website – shows a man running away from the affray, carrying a knife. One can assume this was the knife used in the alleged attack. [If anyone can find a copy of this video anywhere, please let us know.]

The man in the video has already been dubbed the “hero”, for allegedly disarming the man. The video appears to show him removing a piece of evidence from a crime scene. Exactly why is not clear, one would hope it was returned to the police.

The “hero” who allegedly disarmed the “terrorist”.

Who is this gentleman? Why has he been permitted to remove the knife from the crime scene? Why was a dead body left lying in the street, uncovered and with no police cordon around the scene? Who is this man taking the photograph?

Is he an official representative of the police? Or a forensics photographer? If so, wouldn’t you expect him to be dressed like these guys:

These are questions currently without answers.

Author and Journalist Sharmine Narwani raised an interesting point on twitter:

It’s a fair argument to make, with many and varied historical precedents. False flags do happen. You certainly can’t rule anything out, especially at this early stage.

It is interesting that this incident should occur with only two weeks to go before the General Election. As Sharmine points out, it mirrors the Manchester Arena bombing in that respect. It is a generally accepted rule of thumb that the Tories always benefit when the nation feels under-threat.

The Guardian is already dedicated to telling a story, and controlling that story rigidly. Removing comments that even moot the possibility of an alternative motivation, as you can see here.

Whoever was behind the attack, or whatever the reality of the situation, there’s no denying it is already being politicised in certain corners. Within a couple of hours of the incident, this tweet screencap was being circulated:

It is totally fake. A quite obvious attempt to play up Corbyn’s supposed “softness” on terrorism.

So, the important questions:

  • What happened on London Bridge?
  • If it was a “terror attack”, what was the purpose?
  • Will it be politically spun? How so?
  • Will it impact the general election?

As always, discuss freely below. And if you find information which you think is interesting, important, or in danger of being memory-holed, post it in the comments or send it to us directly.

UPDATE 30/11/2019 – Just some relevent/interesting information to add to the discussion.

Firstly, there’s the fact Sky News claims they had a correspondent embedded with the “elite” unit that responded to the attack:

The identity of the alleged attacker is now public too, his name was Usman Khan and he was – as the saying goes – “known to the authorities”. The current story is that he was convicted on terrorism charges in 2012, and was released on license late last year, despite initially being deemed too dangerous to be released.

Another of the alleged “heroes” has also been identfied, in the media, as James Ford, a convicted murderer on day-release.

If he had been shot twice with high powered rifles, his head would have blown like a melon and leaving red blood stains all over the wall.

Except the rifles you speak of are not the type used by British police. High velocity rifles fire through people. This is not desirable for policing due to the risk of collateral casualties. Generally speaking the police only want to take out the person they are shooting at.

Hi Michael, I am studying every scintilla that is published and saving it in my files. Which show without a doubt that this was a false flag.
Lets find out how many of these ‘rehabilitation’ seminars there have been previously? And what is the criteria for being invited, for it was by invitation only? How many ‘criminals’ attended.
Obviously they would have been vetted and examined as they entered, so where did Khan store his blades, vest, massive jacket and balaclava? Who helped him tape the knives to his hands, and what was the point?
The incident happened AFTER the lunch..
Next let’s find out who paid for this event, because the Fishmonger’s venue didn’t come free?
The other points to notice are that the ‘terrorist’ changes his shoes from sand coloured boots to black shoes? Also there is no blood on the knife/es or around the dead man. Remember Woolwich?
Why did the off duty Railway cop run away with one of the knives?
Why were so many people hanging around unconcerned, watching and waiting? Clearly they thought they were watching a film being made?
Here’s my take on it:
Khan had been out on licence since December 2018, and as part of his rehab/with a view to being totally exonerated, he agreed to do one last job for his MI5/6 handlers . To pretend to be a ‘terrorist’ and test the responses of the security services and show the public how on the ball the Government were. Just like the two patsies in Woolwich.

re ‘Why did the off duty Railway cop run away with one of the knives?’ Here’s my take on it:

It was the Railway cop’s job to ensure that the public saw the big scary knife else they may not support the support the draconian laws coming their way.

I prefer to have it mediated by others, especially when they’re clever and funny and I do so miss all the clever YouTubers who are now virtually all shut down in scary fascistic fashion.

The weakness of the judicial system is a function of policies that were presided over by both major parties interchangeably over at least the past 40 years, interspersed with much windy and unconvincing rhetoric about getting tough on crime at election times.

If anything, the Tories are more at fault in this regard.

Until the early 1980s, routine sentencing policy would seem unbelievably harsh (or maybe effective?) by today’s standards.
Disqualified driving (driving on a ban) carried an automatic 6 months’ imprisonment. Not 6 months with release after 3 months. 6 months inside. Now it is treated as a minor traffic offence, like speeding or driving in a bus lane.
Burglary in a dwelling also carried an automatic prison sentence. Now, as part of supposed “get tough” policies, you MAY receive a prison sentence after your THIRD conviction for burglary.
Fairly routine assaults classed as Actual Bodily Harm also often attracted custodial sentences. Now this would be virtually unthinkable.
Surprisingly enough, the level of crime was much lower at this time.

The situation changed radically under Thatcher in the early 80s. Sentencing was scaled back drastically, with prison sentences being replaced by fines (50% of which were never paid), or community service, so called CRAPOs, community rehabilitation and punishment orders (with offenders routinely failing to turn up.) Largely to save money and free up prison places, a batch of 10,000 burglars and car thieves were given early release as an act of policy. By the end of Thatcher’s time in office, crime had more than doubled over the Tory 1980s.

Identical policies were pursued under Labour. We see further results in the current epidemic of knife crime. If this so called “terrorist” on London Bridge was hoping to achieve anything by his little rampage, he would surely be disappointed. Such incidents are now virtually ten a penny all across London on a daily basis.

Previously, the police would routinely stop and search anyone they didn’t like the look of. As a result, people would not generally carry knives and drugs on them. But that obviously had to be stopped, because it was “racist”, even when most of the people turned over were white. Now police only stop people as part of an incredibly bureaucratic procedure, when authorised by senior officers on special occasions. So those same people know that they can carry knives and drugs with almost complete impunity, and they routinely do so. They know that they have nothing to fear from the police, who are just people who walk around wearing silly hats. A great many (mainly black) youngsters are dying as a result.

Did you get this hysterical bullshit from the Daily Mail?

I have a close friend who was a serving copper until recently.

The powers they have to stop and search have increased MASSIVELY with the introduction of the various anti-terrorism laws. Which also permit unlimited detention without charge btw.

A great many people are dying as a result

Bless your terrified little Englander heart! Less than 800 people were murdered in the UK 2017-18. Only a third or less of them were stabbed. Mostly in knife fights or domestic arguments.

You are more likely to drown, be run over or fall down the stairs and break your neck than be stabbed to death in the UK.

The knife crime epidemic is a LIE sold to scare you into demanding more social control. Society is currently about the safest it has ever been.

Calm down. You are currently a chicken little squawking all the panic memes the mainstream want you to squawk.

You’ve never had to serve a full sentence in this country in my lifetime unless a judge recommends a minimum time to be served. You used to have to serve two-thirds of a prison sentence, with a third off for good behaviour…it is a means of imposing self-control on prisoners.
The reason sentences were cut to half served is two-fold, a larger population and over judgemental people like yourself always calling for longer sentences. The prison population rises in tandem with the number of prisons built and we have the largest in Europe, many of who are in for very petty offences.

They are all doing it for free, and they need our support, so if you think they are doing a good job (and I think they are Brilliant), send them a few quid, so they can pay for their hosting fees.

Just seen Lord Falconer explaining (on Sky News) why Usman Khan was “automatically released on licence half way through his sentence”. His explanation demonstrates how Johnson has been extremely frugal/devious with the truth by trying to pin the blame on previous Labour Governments. Apparently, when originally sentenced, the judge decreed that because of the nature of the offences Khan and his cohorts should only be considered for early release after going before the Parole Board. But a Court of Appeal subsequently over-ruled the original sentence and, directly under the terms of the adjusted sentence, Khan (and presumably the others?) became eligible for automatic release under licence half way through their jail term without the involvement of the Parole Board. So it was the Court of Appeal ruling which resulted in his early release, not the terms of the original legislation as Johnson was eager to imply.

MLS
MLS

Usman was a patsy who probably never harmed or intended to harm anyone. Instead of piling on Johnson or the Labour Party or all the rest of the distraction nonsense people should be asking why this guy was ever locked up.

His ‘crime’ was to talk smack about blowing stuff up with some mates. He never actually made any attempt to do anything criminal. Never obtained explosives. Never made any actually statement he was going to do anything. It was just him and his friends sitting round saying ‘yeah man we should like totally blow some stuff up’.

But he was locked up for terrorism anyhow.

That’s the crime here. But the conversation is so cleverly controlled everyone is ignoring that in favour of approved mainstream talking points.

Did I say no one died? No. I said Usman was sent down for simply talking with his mates about how someone could blow something up one day. This is true. Even the BBC suggested the conviction was dodgy.

This is what the Terrorism Act does. It allows people to be locked up for simply saying ‘hey we should like blow stuff up’. If you’re ok with that kind of fascism why are you here?

As to what happened on London Bridge. I have no clue. And neither do you. You’re just gullible enough to believe a lot more of the unverified stuff you hear from the corporate media than I am.

My view: the credulous and those not yet experienced in the real world may be affected, but the cynical majority will shrug their shoulders and say ‘When will the nobs just grow up?’

Most people can point to one event when their innocent trust of the MSM disappeared. In my generation it was 9/11, Iraq and Afghanistan.

That shows up a weakness about media control. They can feed you anything they want. They can also feed you bullshit about “public opinion” that encourages you to feel you’re in a tiny minority of “nuts”. But underneath it all lies ACTUAL public opinion. And that means that, although nobody is ever going to be allowed to say it on mainstream media – other than as a “crazy conspiracy theory”, there may be a sizable section of the ACTUAL public yawning over it and thinking, “Another pile of shite”.

Robbobbobin

“Most people can point to one event when their innocent trust of the MSM disappeared. In my generation it was 9/11, Iraq and Afghanistan.”

It was decade or so after what I call “my generation” for me, specifically on the 25th of January 1969. As the now-illustrious journalist, John Mair, reported on an anniversary of the event:

For much of 1967, 1968 and 1969 the students were fighting the [London School of Economics] authorities. It all culminated in the ‘smashing of the gates’ on January 24 1969. The university, in an attempt to prevent students occupying its buildings, had erected gates around the campus; the protesters promptly took iron bars and knocked them down.

No they didn’t. Maybe there were some temporary, easily knocked down ‘rent-a-gate’s somewhere that the students found it expedient to “knock down” with “iron bars”, but I can’t imagine where they would be, I don’t recall any and I don’t believe it. In keeping with the commercial area at the end of Kingsway that the LSE occupied, the School’s property was then secured with normal, structurally integrated, metal folding gates (similar to the then-common, manually-operated, open-weave lift gates in department stores and at some Underground stations) and normal, business-premises style security doors, of which they very carefully unbolted a few from their mounts, taped the bolts to them, and passed the entire, intact units, one to another over their heads, for orderly stacking in safe areas, all the while making polite way for the through passage of those not there to demonstrate or occupy (one of which was me, who stayed a while to observe and encourage, both going in and coming out).

On the 25th all of the established press and tv, including The Guardian, were reporting riotous scenes of wholesale mayhem, assault and wanton destruction. Teddy bears’ picnic, more like. Maybe John Mair wasn’t actually there, either? Maybe he was at home, declaiming into a steamed up bathroom mirror, practising to be a reliable ‘reporter’ (sick)?

Apparently attacker shot-dead gets up…but this the same person?!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYQjvcONKKs

Editor: We consider this to be an interesting but highly dubious snippet of video. No provenance has yet been established and no explanation for its incredibly truncated duration has been offered. These and other anomalies lead us to seriously question its authenticity and we’d discourage people from giving it any weight at this time -ed.

ity

A few things make me immediately suspicious of that video.

He doesn’t seem to be laying on the ground in the same way as the dead body depicted in the main article. Nor at exactly the same spot.

And the very nature of the 6 second clip. For a start the women talking in the background. What they say and how they say it sounds insincere and staged, and suspiciously timed. And the dramatic ‘bonging’ noise added to the clip for drama? Really? And the fact that the up-loader only gives 6 seconds of film. Why wouldn’t they keep filming the man who has just stood up? Or if they did keep filming, why edit the film so that it ends when it does?

But what is really interesting, and opens a whole new Pandora’s box, is the sunlight. In the above photograph in the main article, of the person taking a photograph of the body, the sun has obviously moved on, and there is no longer sunlight hitting the pavement or road. And yet the you-tube video that was supposedly uploaded on 29th, the same day as the attack, shows similar sunlight patterns to those shown at the time the man was shot. So something isn’t right here. Something smells fishy.

Frank Speaker
Frank Speaker

The body was apparently laying there until well into the evening, so the area was lit by artificial light. If you’ve ever been in that area you will know the street lights are very bright, and no problem for a photo to show a bus a red and the rest of the area shades of black and white…to answer another point raised. I’m an experienced amateur photographer and i cannot see any obvious issues with the photos yet from having a quick look.

Maggie
Maggie

And why would they leave the body lying unattended and not screened off for four hours or more?
There would have been a tent over it, had it been a real dead body.

Maggie

Petra Liverani

Frank gives a possible explanation for the anomaly you point out relating to the sunlight which doesn’t debunk the anomaly because it could still be a genuine anomaly, in fact, I’m not sure his explanation really works anyway but I’m not expert in lighting so I cannot comment. It is truly remarkable how people will cherry pick one item in your list of points and offer another possible explanation which doesn’t debunk and only offers an alternative, however, the rest of the list remains without explanation from the would-be debunker.

ALL THE EVIDENCE MUST BE EXPLAINED.

Good work, ity. You show the makings of an expert hoax analyst … when you get that they deliberately undermine the story it makes it so much easier, doesn’t it?

Short low definition videos can be faked very quickly, which I suggest this most probably is. It is quite clearly not a video of the event, so it was either faked, the same day as the event, or is a legitimate video, recorded before the event, by someone who knew the event was going to happen.

In my view it is a fake of a fake event, but it proves exactly nothing. I have seen no evidence that anyone died, though it is possible that they did. I agree with my wife, that there were many witnesses there who were shocked and convinced someone was shot dead, by police. However, we have both been to many stage plays, where murder was completely faked, within yards of us. We even chatted to some of the actors afterwards in the pub.

One of the first things to consider, is the timing of this event, and other similar events, and possible political motivations for such events.

Some are quite clearly faked, and quite obviously so. Some are very real indeed.

Personally, I think Jo Cox is probably still alive, but I know, that no one I know, will agree with my view, so I keep such thoughts to myself, as I do not particularly want to be perceived as completely mad.

It had to be when you think about it, it all drops into place. Expendable footsoldiers recruited to fight foreign wars, a big increase in funding and more spooks, more surveillance, more control of the population, “lone wolf terror attacks” to drive public opinion to accept propaganda as truth, shoot to kill and allow occasional maham to keep us inside….. they’ve got us exactly where they want us and the biggest tools are the idiot Muslim youth “radicalising” themselves and buying one way tickets to Turkey or purchasing knives or making explosives to fill the objectives of MI5/6.

Where is the link to the “dead” guy getting up?

As for the cloth, let’s think about this rationally for a minute. The attacker had 2 knives that he’s killed 2 people with and slashed many more. The knives will have blood on them. The attacker is temporarily disabled / distracted, one of his knives is seized and the chap now holding it is holding it by the blade. He will have blood on his hands, so he takes a handkerchief out of his pocket. A bit later on he throws it away. I don’t think it’s more than that, but I could be wrong.

He did get a piece of paper from his pocket (probably his script?) and threw it in the floor. It was not a handkerchief, and he did not wipe the knife or his hands with it….

I wish someone would put the following straightforward question to Boris Johnson. How come the practice of “automatic early release” which he has been effusively condemning today, and implies cannot be denied to convicted terrorists, didn’t apply equally to Julian Assange when he was eligible for release on licence in September? Or am I missing something?
