Hard to imagine a more demoralizing order for a soldier than to tell him to take off the uniform and hide after an enemys attack. And the powers that be know it: Theyre stressing that the orders temporary in order to blunt public indignation over their decision.
The twisted punchline here is that the victim yesterday wasnt wearing a uniform. The two degenerates who murdered him apparently targeted him because they saw him entering or exiting a barracks. Theres the next move, presumably evacuate the barracks nationwide until theyre safe. For soldiers.
Defence sources said the order had been given that uniform should not be worn by those travelling alone, or on public transport as a common sense precaution immediately after the killing
A source stressed the order was temporary while investigations into the killing carried on and the decision would be reviewed in the next few days
Personally, I would argue against it, [Col Richard Kemp] told the Today programme. As we saw in this case you dont need to have somebody in uniform, you just need to have someone who knows a bit about soldiers and does a bit of observation in the vicinity of a barracks and you can identify a soldier very quickly
The Ministry of Defence has already announced it is increasing security at all barracks in London.
A lingering mystery: Why did none of the (apparently many) bystanders intervene yesterday to stop the jihadis in the act? By some accounts, it took 20 minutes for the cops to get there. The terrorists took time to chat with people nearby. Unless I missed something, no one laid a hand on them until they were eventually shot by police. Is that the Kitty Genovese syndrome at work or something worse?(continued)

I’m old school. Double-tap works for me.
It’d be way too easy to give them firearms......
How about they just carry their rifles when they wear the uniform?
But any more attacks will be against ‘civilians’ and treated as a crime since the soldier will not be in uniform.
Go back to the armory and dig out all those old Webleys that aren’t being used and make sure everyone is armed and preferably traveling in pairs.
What would happen if this event occurred in an American state that supported the U.S.Constitution?
Do you think that 2,3 or 4 LEGAL gun carrying citizens may have stopped this butchery?
Of course, in New York and other PC places, the citizens would watch, hesitating to go against a machete.
As was shown in England, when danger is present NOW, the police forces are a mere 20 minutes away.
Sounds like an unconditional surrender to me.
an eye for an eye....that is the Mussie war cry...it could be a double-edged sword!!!
One more win for the muzzies.
And on and on it goes.
In a more genteel society, the crowd would have attacked the two mutants and the only thing left for the police to deal with when they arrived would have been piles of assorted body parts and disjointed body organs.
We have to get our manhood back even if it means going right through the maniacs who feel they have a right to “rule” us.
If it’s unsafe to wear your own country’s uniform in your own country...you don’t have a country anymore.
They lost the combination to their weapons locker.
A far cry from the once mighty army of the Brittish Empire.
Forgive me, but I thought it was...
Where are some innocent people? I feel like killing somebody.
Utterly DISGRACEFUL when you are ordered NOT to wear your military uniform in your HOME COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Run Away! Run Away!
This is right out of Monty Python.
This is the ARMY for pete sake! Give them a gun and dare them to even try any nonsense again.
And this is the hacks solution to the problem? Don’t wear your uniform
off base? The once might Brittish Empire has come to this.
This would have not been the solution from Iron Lady Thatcher.
The great Clive Of India facing an army of 100,000 screaming Indians and conquering them with (If my memory does not fail me)about 2000 Red Coats. Sam Houston with about 800 untrained militia defeating 2000 trained Mexican soldiers. Those are the examples of the former Western man. Today our “men” would flee in abject terror.
I e-mailed 10 Downing Street and said that The Changing of the Guard in Blue Jeans should be inspiring.
