British troops told not to wear uniforms outside army bases
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 killingIf I'm correct, the murdered soldier wasn't wearing his uniform outside the base, so I'm not sure how this makes sense to instruct the troops not to wear their uniforms while off-duty.
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 don’t 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.
The worst part is how the crowds who witnessed the horrific crime went the Kitty Genovese route and did nothing to stop the jihad murderers from executing the soldier. Richard Fernandez says:
This incident illustrates, if nothing else, the endpoint of the social engineering of the West. It has been remarkably effective.But will they be encouraged and counseled to have the courage it takes to prevent more graphic murders like this from occurring if there's a chance they can stop them from happening? Probably not.
From a certain point of view, the British crowd behaved perfectly and this is the way “they” all want us to behave. The populace sheltered in place, didn’t do anything rash, talked to the perpetrators as people. They waited for the police to come and the hospital helicopter to take the corpse away. Some will doubtless get counseling to overcome their shattering experience.
