Terrorists along with their supporters and mentors in Isil would like nothing more than a low turnout in the UK general election on Thursday. It would show that their heinous actions are working, literally terrorising many people to stay away from polling stations.

They don't believe in democracy anyway, yet use its freedoms to peddle their message of hate. Hopefully, the voters will come out in their millions to exercise their rights and show that, for all its faults, democracy is still the best political system we have.

It is also to be hoped that moderate voices continue to make it abundantly clear that the perpetrators of the dreadful killings in London and Manchester were not acting in the name of the vast majority of Muslim families.
