Don't Say You Weren't Warned
The evidence of Islamic extremists living and lurking in our communities has been abundant. but few in public life are willing to expose the poison at work within.
The words most people hate to hear are "I told you so."
They smack of smugness and triumphalism as the utterer seeks to elevate themselves over another.
However, there are occasions where these words should be used. Now is one of them.
In saying that, it gives me no joy at having been the canary in the political coal mine warning about some of the dangers lurking within our society.
Those warnings came with a heavy price, as the cultural relativists insisted that there were no links between one particular political and religious ideology and terrorism.
I regret, the price of ignoring the prescient words will cost us even more dearly.
