What saddens me is, although the rhetoric is always 'we won't let them win' ... gradually they are winning. Yes in ways that might seem relatively unimportant, however no matter how you look at it, it's a gradual erosion of freedoms we've taken for granted. From relatively innocuous things like having to put barriers up to protect everything from funfairs to London Bridge, to more contentious things like upping surveillance, cameras etc.
Perhaps this is too simplistic a way to look at things, however surely there's a debate to be had around the different societal values of the west compared to some other countries. So when people from said countries settle here, whether first generation or beyond, a small proportion of those people can be predisposed, either through their own beliefs and/or radicalisation, to essentially hate everything the west and democratic countries stand for?
I'm not liking what I'm seeing across the world these days, in many ways we seem to be going backwards not forwards.
