Today’s London with a muslim mayor

“Unacceptable management” of London Bridge terrorist Usman Khan contributed to the deaths of his two victims, an inquest has concluded.

They found that those involved with Khan had been blinded by his “poster-boy image”…

They added that there had been “missed opportunities for those with expertise and experience to give guidance” in the management of Khan.

Mr Merritt’s father David agreed that Khan’s supervision after release “was not fit for purpose”.

He described authorities as “complacent and passive” faced with the threat of what he might do.

Met Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu described the force’s shortcomings as “simply unacceptable”, adding he was “so deeply sorry”.

“The stark reality is we can’t prevent every attack,” he said. “But I promise we will do everything we can to try.”
