According to the Mirror, his sister Freddy Dowling said on Facebook: “Doctors are very happy with how he’s come out the other side”. You either repeat all the usual tropes about not letting the terrorists win, or you despair silently.

Before holding a minute’s silence, Khan, the first Muslim to be elected mayor of a major Western European city, said: “I want to send a clear message to the sick and evil extremists who commit these disgusting crimes. It is a close-knit community and I know it has devastated the community”.

“We grieve with the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones, and wish all those injured a speedy and full recovery”, Trudeau said. They want to sow fear and division.
