What appears to be a homemade bomb using a white plastic bucket inside a shopping bag exploded in a London Underground station during the morning rush, injuring “a number” of people, according to reports.

London Metropolitan Police have confirmed the explosion at Parsons Green station on the District Line was being treated as a terror attack.
One Twitter user included an anonymous chat room post which read “Because we are a safe haven for terrorists, we are so PC that we accuse the eskimos of terrorism and any other religion/race that has over run the UK, bombs on the trains are all part and parcel of living in a city, pray for the muslims on that train.” Of course such sentiments could be considered illegal in England as “hate speech.”
In England, the word “terror” is a euphemism for people who don’t like the racist, white, non-Muslim inhabitants of the island nation, and wish to show their displeasure at those people by killing them. Everyone condemns terror, but little is done about the root of it.
PM: My thoughts are with those injured at Parsons Green and emergency services who are responding bravely to this terrorist incident.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s statement published on Facebook said:
Our city utterly condemns the hideous individuals who attempt to use terror to harm us and destroy our way of life. As London has proven again and again, we will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism.
The New York Times reported the explosion occurred at 8:20 a.m. on a District Line train as it left the station.
“The train was packed, and I was down the other side of the carriage standing up, looking at my phone and then I heard a big boom and felt this heat on my face,” said Natalie Belford, 42, a hairdresser and beautician who was on the train. “I ran for my life, but there was no way out. The doors were full of people and the carriage was too packed to move down.”
London Metro Police tweeted that this is a terror incident, but that it’s too early to determine the cause.
Too early to confirm cause of fire – now subject to the investigation that is underway. Station remains cordoned off. Please avoid the area

Until they start looking for the motive and take off their blindfolds, they’ll never find it.
