‘I have just chaired a meeting of the Government’s emergency committee, COBRA, following the sick and depraved terrorist attack on the streets of our Capital this afternoon. The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorist choose to strike at the heart of our Capital city. Where people of all nationalities, religions, and cultures, come together.
To celebrate the values of liberty, democracy, and freedom of speech. Any attempt to defeat those values through violence and terror is doomed to failure. Tomorrow morning, Parliament will meet as normal. We will come together as normal, and we will all move forward together. Never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.
