#1 "Department of Streets? We need marking
For infidel dogs who drive, barking,
Straight onto the pavement,
And rave of enslavement...
Or snark about 'Finsbury Parking!'"

#2 Connected or retaliation?
Posted by: NoMoreBS 2017-06-18 20:57

I'm going for retaliation, NoMoreBS, given subsequent revelations. In checking over yesterday's Burg before I go to sleep, I noticed your link is the same as mine. Next time, go ahead and set up an article as well -- if it turns out to be a false alarm, we can always delete it. ;-) Thank you for being on top of this for us.

#3 We need van controls!

#4 Findsbury park Mosque was a hotbed of radicalism and got shut down. Subsequently reopened under new sweetness and light management or so Wikipedia says.

Given the van was rented 200 miles away in rural Wales, I'd say it was specifically targeted.

#5 van controls!

Yes! My two three step plan:

1) Remove all edged or pointy things from private hands.
2) Assign knife-armed police to butchers, fruit-and-veg vendors, and restaurants. Peelers, like.
3) Replace all drivers with armed police.

phil_b's Wikipedia article. Though with a current stated affiliation as Salafi - Ikhwan, I have to wonder how much bitterness and bile is currently going on there behind closed doors.

Incidentally, Abu Hamza's Wikipedia page is worth reviewing.

#8 Looks like the truck of peace got a turnabout.

I was wondering when something like this would happen to be honest.

There's probably a majority of people who look at this country failing needlessly and wondering WTF is happening. Looking at those who died in the recent fire makes it look like it was a fire in pakistan.

It wasn't outside the mosque and it's in a weird one-way system.
I wonder if this a crash with muslims in the road being engineered into something else?

This is alledgedly a picture of the van driver

The van was hired in Wales 200 odd miles away.

#18 It's looking like an RTA bigged up into terrorism by a screaming MSM.

Apparently, there was a heart attack patient in the road and the guy collided with a crowd around him.

They obviously were not near the mosque as that's 10 mins walk up the road.

Let's see what the MSM spin up!

#23 @Grom Yes! Apparently, the guy who died was from a heart attack and was sitting in the road in a chair!

There was group around him and the van swerved away from them probably into the curb.

This is looking more and more dodgy by the moment.

Picture of crashed van. Front shows no sign of injury so likely low speed.
Sole Death was from heart attack BEFORE crash!
Heart attack person was sitting in a chair in the middle of the road!

#46 If the folks that got plowed into were from the Finsbury mosque, and if it turns out they were making this up, I imagine that it could well blow up in their face. Look for authorities to cover this up in that case.

#47 So, a "hate crime" manufactured from an incident?

It's starting to look like it. I'd assumed it was directly outside the mosque. As it wasn't, how would the driver even know they were muslims?

Someone from outside London, not familiar with area, comes around a corner to find a crowd in the middle of the road. The rest can be put down to the muslim tendency to lie compulsively.

Can't see any of the MSM backtracking on the terrorism narrative as yet.

#49 This is interesting.

Follow the link to the videos and I can see why the eyewitness thought it was just a drill. No urgency and looks consistent with a minor traffic accident with no serious injuries.

Add in police over reaction due to the claim of 'terrorism'. And it looks like the real story is Muslims lying, resulting in a massive waste of police time.

The Daily Express has two bits of video, which don't make it look like a proper jihad attack, and they report the police say it isn't terror. On Bright Pebble's twitter link people were claiming the man was swearing in Romanian, about which I am not qualified to judge.
