As the risk became clear of migrants entering Europe with fake Syrian ID, as migrants themselves leave a trail of rape, sexual assault and exploitation and coercion in their wake, as violence rules migrant camps inhabited by young men and as the inability of the authorities to control their movement within Europe becomes clear, the #refugeeswelcome fools are still howling at us to lift all controls and let everyone in.
And even as the most emollient politicians have finally stopped parroting that these attacks are nothing to do with Islam, Muslims in Europe who resent any comments about their separate lifestyles are still chanting it. As Katie Hopkins quotes in today's Mail '(ISIS) has a clear strategy. A strategy which includes beheadings, crucifixions, and the revival of slavery, and it all derives from their fucking book, the only book they ever read.'
Some 27% of UK Muslims thought the Charlie Hebdo murders were justified; even though the numbers supporting the Paris atrocities will be fewer, they will still be significant. The most risibly stupid of the UK Friday people will even post their thoughts on Facebook.
But despite all of this, a cold new reality is blowing away the soft fluffy dream cobwebs of the lunatic liberals. The victims in Paris were the French equivalent of Guardian readers; under-30 hipsters, Hoxton arts fags, multikulti street people. We have always held their lives as valuable and vulnerable to terrorism, but for too long they themselves have thought that the effects of terrorism were for other people.
And even as the EU's senior unelected official stumbles about in a drunken stupor mumbling a drunkard's rubbish, I hear the sound of 'liberal' (the most misused of terms) Shibboleths crumbling and falling. It's a tragedy that's it's taken blood, bullets and lives to achieve it.
What to do if an Islamist gunman opens up
Of course, I knew it wouldn't be five minutes before the government started issuing stuff. My mate Eric runs a marginal pub - no garden, no food and hit by the smoking ban. He was delighted to receive from the Met advice to 'review your business continuity plan' and to 'ensure door controls and internal security compartmentation are in place'. That would be Mrs Eric, we guess. Their Mumbai advice goes
- Under immediate gunfire, take cover and try to escape
- Nearby gunfire - try to leave the area, if safe
- Leave belongings behind
- Don't block exits or evacuation routes
- If you can't escape, try locking yourself in a room or cupboard, barricade the door and keep very quiet, including silencing mobile phones
