A big “Huck’s Hero” salute to the people of London who, having been disarmed by their liberal government, fought back against the terrorist killers by throwing bottles, chairs and anything that came to hand at them to slow their murderous assault. By doing so, they were violating a police advice campaign on how to deal with a terrorist incident, which was summed up in three words: “Run. Hide. Tell.” (“Tell” means call the police.)

Has it really been only 42 years since the most British of all comedy teams, Monty Python, released the classic comedy “Holy Grail?” Back then, it was considered hilarious that King Arthur would command his knights to “Run away!” One cowardly knight even had his own theme song: “When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled…”

As recently as 1975, the thought of Britons running away from danger and hiding was a joke. Today, it’s official government policy.

    I don't believe we have the right to comment off of one silly policy statement.
    I know many britains and they are courageous people. I know many that ran to help during the last attack in London!

    And evidently it has escaped your (Martin Wood) notice that the Muslim problem in the UK is the direct result of Muslim immigrants who never fully assimilated into British culture as a result of which their children have been easily radicalized. Furthermore, I'd much rather listen to Fox news than any of the lying mainstream media outlets. Evidently YOU have been drinking the Koolaid far too long and it's affected your ability to think clearly.

    As a Conservative (conservative in American terms) American living in Britain, I have found it sad to watch as the UK succumbs to the media and its bias. Most Britons feel it's very safe to live here. They do not see any issues with extreme Muslims, and all the blame for anything goes to the "Tories". The upcoming election is extremely important as it will tell the direction of the UK.

    Liberal government? The Tories? Are you kidding me? Anyway, that aside, I saw your ill-informed comments on Fox the other evening. (I watch Fox occasionally for light entertainment. The original fake news channel.) You blamed European open borders for the recent events in the UK. Apparently it has escaped your notice that (1) the UK does not have open borders - we are not in Schengen; and (2) the perpetrators of terrorist acts in the UK have pretty much all, if indeed not all, been British born.
