You’ll note that the video has been removed from Youtube, thus the censorship is now complete (the BBC showed a very short clip from the video, omitting virtually all the young man’s statement). To add to the partial quote below, the Guardian carried more of the young man’s message:
“You think [British Prime Minister] David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start bussin’ our guns?” the man continued, again quoted by The Guardian. “You think politicians are going to die? No it’s going to be the average guy, like you, and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so you can all live in peace.”
18:37 GMT: The suspect, a black male dressed in a grey hooded jacket and black brimless cap, apologized to people at the scene who witnessed the attack before going on to make several more political statements.
In the video obtained by ITV News, he can be heard saying in clear English without a foreign accent:
“We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
“I apologize that women have had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you.”
