Camden candidates from all parties stand together in solidarity

Last night witnessed a third major terrorist incident in as many months. Regardless of our political differences, we are united in condemning the attack in South London. Our thoughts are with all of those affected including the injured and the families and friends of those that have died. 

Again, we have seen the very best of our community, offering help to those in need near the scene. Again, the emergency services responded within minutes, placing themselves in danger to help victims and bring the situation to a rapid conclusion. Again, we are united, not divided, by such a terrible act.

Our admiration and thanks go to those members of the emergency services who bravely run into danger to protect us and to the hospital staff who deal with the horrific consequences.

As Londoners, we will not allow hate to triumph over optimism, nor suspicion to triumph over hope.
