Candle lights on Westminster Bridge, London as two more “significant arrests” have been made in connection with the Westminster attack, police have said CREDIT: VICTORIA JONES /PA WIRE
As so often Charles Moore got it right in his article in the Telegraph of Saturday 25th March (and indeed Simon Heffer on Sunday) from his opening words that “Yes, almost everyone involved – except the killer himself – behaved well” to his conclusion that “Nothing that has happened this week convinces me that we are beating them”.
I share Charles Moore’s feelings. As I was being bundled around along with hundreds of other men, women and children back and forth, in the Palace of Westminster on Wednesday afternoon my mind turned back to the early hours of 12th October 1984 when an IRA bomb came very close indeed to killing Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. A few hours later (whilst I was still unconscious) the final session of the 1984 Conservative Party Conference opened spot on time and, as scheduled, the Prime Minister delivered her speech.
