    BBC news saying it was a concert attacked in Manchester, families and kids

    Confirmation of numerous dead, many seriously injured. Reports of injuries consistent with a blast of some sort. Police are not confirming it was a terror attack, but what can explode in a concert venue entrance hall. Police dealing with car abandoned at cross roads in Manchester.

    No doubt be one of those radicalised British Caucasians the Police keep saying we need to be wary of, yeah right.

    Cowardly C****S, hung drawn and quartered would be too good for them.

    My emotions this morning are with those who will now suffer for the remainder of their lives. Physical scars leading to serious mental scars. I deeply feel for them

    Death toll at 22 now, 59 injured.

    Confirmed now, a sucide bomber.

    Pray for the victims, their families. Hold the emergency workers, police, paramedics, first responders, Drs, nurses in your thoughts too, the horror they have had to see.

    My first thoughts this morning were of compassion for those involved. My second was that whether by design or coincidence May has now won the election.

    There are coincidences and there are coincidences. Two days before this all over the media Corben refuses to contemn terrorism (IRA). Now this. Just who radicalises these people?

    People are considered collateral damage, the same as a bridge or road - that's the ugly truth whether we like it or not. We only have value within our own circle - outside of it we are in fact of very little value - less than an oil refinery - or the outcome of an election.

    My thoughts are with those who suffered - but I'm not blinkered by grief or outrage.

    'Strong Stable Leadership' - now it means so much more. The UK is fucked.
