To hell with #solidarity. If Europe is willing to accept that Muslim terror is simply the new normal we can’t afford to stay part of it.

After the terrorist attacks in Brussels, columnist Katie Hopkins writes for The Daily Mail,

“The usual suspects from Obama to Cameron to Hollande trotted out well-practised lines about showing solidarity with our Belgian neighbours.

“And the people who say we must carry on as normal or the terrorists win are talking nonsense. Because the terrorists are winning. They won in Paris, they won in Brussels, they won on 7/7 and 9/11 and they will win again.”
