Tubeworker sends its sympathies and condolences to the families of those killed and injured in today's attack at Westminster.
As we write, the identity of the attacker is not public, nor their political affiliations. The police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack. Whatever they are, there is no justification for the kind of wanton, brutal attack they carried out.
We stand in solidarity with our colleagues at Westminster station in particular, whose role in the aftermath of the incident has been praised. Their role shows the vital necessity for properly staffed stations, with staffed control rooms.
If the attacker is, or is assumed to be, Muslim, there is also a need to stand together against racist reprisals that seek to collectively blame and attack all Muslims for the actions of a tiny minority.
