This morning I think we all feel drained and shocked at what happened yesterday. I know that everyone who works on the Parliamentary Estate is feeling acutely aware that PC Keith Palmer has lost his life in order to keep us safe. Our thoughts are with his family and friends – and indeed with all the victims, their family and friends – after yesterday’s terrible events.
Today Parliament is continuing with business. Violent extremists and terrorists want us to react and to stoke hostility. The best thing we can do to show these people that violence and terrorism will never work is to continue to support each other, respect each other and get on with our lives as before.
