I'm just catching up on the news and am concerned, nay gutted, to learn a nutter has driven a truck into a crowd of Muslim worshippers leaving a mosque in the Finsbury Park area of north London. This is the problem with propagating hate and attempting to legitimise it - there's no predicting how it might impact on people. ( We teachers intuitively understand how our charges mimic each other and push it and push it some more and that there is always one who doesn't know when enough is enough and oversteps the mark). There are reports of the driver, a white guy, yelling about wanting to kill Moslems. Well he has killed one person for his efforts and seriously hurt several others. But he was overpowered and there are reports of the mosque's leader, Mohammed Mahmood instructing his people: 'You do not touch him'. So he was restrained by those he attacked and duly handed over to London's finest. These are truly grim times in which we live and my heart and prayers go out to all people in London who must be wondering when this insanity will end.
