Manchester terror attack

Maybe not the place and absolute off topic but I get devestated by things like this and I would like to pay my respects to all those affected in Manchester and their loved ones. 

If you use ABS or Traction Control, you are no longer a racing driver.

And suddenly I realised that I was no longer driving the car consciously. I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension.

    Our thoughts and best wishes to all those effected from Australia and my condolences to all those affiliated with the unfortunate ones who passed away.
    Nothing better than watching a driver on the ragged edge. Nothing better than feeling a car right on the limits of its own performance.

    I respect that Jenny, just placed it here because I'm always here and had to get it off my chest.

    This stuff is just inconceivable. Can never get my head around the reasoning behind such cowardly attacks. My daughter lives in Manchester and attends that arena for concerts so it was a real shocker to finds this out this morning. Can't imagine the horror that some families are going through today. Thoughts and best wishes are with them all.

    It's absolutely sickening. I can't imagine what the parents of the kids that died are going through, or the kids that seen the devastation. Terrorist attacks are sick no matter who they target, but specifically targeting young kids feels like a whole new level. 

    Also sick are people on Twitter blaming Muslims and Islam. These monsters that carry out these attacks are not religious nor represent Muslims.

    It's absolutely sickening, and nothing EVER changes. Believe me, there will be many more attacks to come over the next couple of years. How many more innocent people need to lose their lives before this stops?

    The Independent, and many others, have said that the country should just 'carry on as before'. Sadiq Khan has said before that terrorist attacks are just part and parcel of our lives now, we need to just accept them.

    Going on social media and going #PrayFor doesn't help, putting a flag filter over your Facebook profile picture doesn't help. People need to stop being so politically correct, worrying about hurting some Muslims feelings, and actually worry about stopping more innocent lives from being lost. That's the issue here. But nothing will change, because people are too worried about offending people rather than sorting out the problem. It's ridiculous.

    Paul Joseph Watson hits the nail on the head here, just watch this.

    OK there Tommy Robinson, jeez..... When a white person kills people, people either say that person is mad or has mental health issue. When a Muslim does it it's the fault of every Muslim and they should all be banned, suck a load of bollocks

    It was not my intention to raise a political discussion over what happened in Manchester, so please do not. It's not ethical. Otherwise close this post Jenny.
