You Will Fail

Finally, I wish to speak directly to those who came to London today to take life.

I know that you personally do not fear giving up your own life in order to take others – that is why you are so dangerous. But I know you fear that you may fail in your long-term objective to destroy our free society and I can show you why you will fail.

In the days that follow look at our airports, look at our sea ports and look at our railway stations and, even after your cowardly attack, you will see that people from the rest of Britain, people from around the world will arrive in London to become Londoners and to fulfill their dreams and achieve their potential.

They choose to come to London, as so many have come before because they come to be free, they come to live the life they choose, they come to be able to be themselves. They flee you because you tell them how they should live. They don’t want that and nothing you do, however many of us you kill, will stop that flight to our city where freedom is strong and where people can live in harmony with one another. Whatever you do, however many you kill, you will fail.

  1. I love that he cites immigration as a sign of London's continued strength not as a source of fear.

  2. We're thinking of you and wishing you safety.

  3. Good old Ken,
    And he also Breeds Newts, which is pretty cool.

  4. They have one of these signs hanging where the Israeli Consulate can see it, right?

    I'd say the American consulate needs to read it too, but since only 17% of their citizens become fluent in the English language, maybe their Israeli fuck puppets can explain it to them.

  5. Top speech..Still fucking scary though!
