London attack cannot divide UK's diverse community, says Ed Miliband

LONDON: Former labour leader Ed Miliband while talking to Geo News condemned the terrorist attacks last Wednesday as horrible, adding that such incidents cannot divide the community on the basis of religion, ethnicity or creed.

He said this in a fund-raising dinner hosted by Labour MP Rupa Haq in Ealing Central and Acton here in London. He recalled the terror attack as dreadful but stressed upon the community to remain calm and patient in these testing times.

Miliband expressed sympathy for victims of the London attack and said that no one can divide Britain on ethnic basis.

Responding to another question, the Labour leader said that from today Labour is focusing to make sure the incumbent government guarantees the rights and protections the party values most. We cannot allow Britain to become a low-tax haven, benefitting a few, he added. “We must ensure that jobs, living standard and your right at your work are protected.”

On March 22, an attacker, later identified as Khalid Masood, sped across Westminster Bridge in a car, mowing down pedestrians along the way, then ran through the gates of the nearby parliament building and stabbed a policeman before being shot dead.
