Libertarianz - "We are all Londoners today"

Libertarianz - "We are all Londoners today"

"Saddened and disgusted" is how Libertarianz Leader and Wellington Central Candidate Bernard Darnton described the news of the terrorist bombing of London today. "We are all Londoners today," he says.

"I join in the principled and wholehearted condemnation by Tony Blair of this vile act of murder. I am pleased that the Prime Minister, Don Brash and the Green Party have all come out against this attack, which is an attack on freedom, civilisation and humanity. I call upon all political party leaders, particularly the leader of the Mäori Party - who seems reticent when an African leader murders Africans - to join together in unanimous support for Tony Blair and the British people in recovering from and responding to this wholly unjustified attack."

Darnton concluded "The sooner that the murderous scum of Al Qaeda and those that offer them support and succour are eliminated firmly and decisively the better."
