– David Cameron
This country will be absolutely resolute in its stand against violent extremism and terror.
We will never give in to terror of terrorism in any of its forms. This view is shared by every community in our country.
This was not just an attack on Britain and the British way of life it was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much for our country.
We will defeat violent extremism by standing together.
