Today marks the fifth anniversary of the London bombings, an attrocity that took the lives of 52 innocent people.
People from across the capital and the country as a whole stopped at 12 noon to remember that day, and to show that the lives of the victims shall be forever remembered. The silence also marks a time when we stand together resilient to those with extreme views that seek to harm us, whoever they may be. However, this fifth year, a landmark I would say was missing any official memorial, and missing particularly the Prime Minister. I am the first to defend Mr Cameron – I have always been a supporter, but on this occasion, it is a poor show that he did not make an appearance at one of the memorials that were held in London. To simply write a card on a wreath is not enough, and the families of the dead have every right to feel hard done by.
