UK Paper: 'There's Only One Way Brits Should Respond to Such Attacks: Carrying On Exactly As Before'

According to The Independent, there's only "one way" for Britain to respond to the deadly terror attack in Manchester: acting like it never happened and ignoring that there's problem.

At least 22 people, including many children, were killed in the attack and ISIS is claiming responsibility.

Andrew Buncombe at The Independent wrote this gem of an article last night after it became clear the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester was another terrorist attack:

After noting this could be "the deadliest [attack] of its type since the July 7 bombing attack in 2005 that killed 52 people," Buncombe wrote:
...if the intention of those who commit acts of terror is to disrupt ordinary life, than the only possible response is not to let that happen. That is not to say police should not track down who was responsible for such vile murder. That is not to say the security services should step up their efforts to do all they can to stop a repeat of such slaughter.

Nor is it about what lots of Britons like to call the Dunkirk spirit, or about showing a stiff upper lip.

Rather, it is a merely an assessment of the options that are available to us, the ordinary people, those without superhuman powers.

We’re not actually equipped to do that much at all, other than to try to carry on, to not allow ourselves to be terrorised, to stop living our lives. And that means means continuing with the general election May felt obliged to call, or keep on buying tickets to see the likes of Ariana Grande.
While people are being run over with trucks and blown up at pop concerts, all we can do is ignore the problem and carry on like nothing ever happened.

This is the left's only response.

This is "part and parcel of living in a big city," as London's Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan has said.

Here's some of the responses to The Independent's tweet:

The truth is there's a really simple solution to this problem:

Admit this whole open-borders experiment was a giant mistake and tell these people "you have to go back."
