Wherever you are you will have heard of the barbaric murder yesterday in Woolwich, London. Drummer Lee Rigby, Royal Regiment of Fusiliers was murdered on the street in his capital city. His murderers appear to have been Islamists. Like other Islamist murderers and potential murderers arrested in the last few years in the UK, they appear to have been British citizens, or, at least, to have lived here for many years. The sense of horror, sadness, and anger that many of us feel overlies a sense of bewilderment - what has happened to England, to Britain? And when were we asked whether we agreed?
Drummer Lee Rigby, son, husband, father, Englishman, British soldier.RIP.
