Very preliminary reports, and an ongoing incident, but it looks like a terrible thing with 20+ dead reported so far.

This is very sad, and hits close to home for me as I used to live in Manchester, and I worked in the Victoria building right next to the Arena.

Needless to say the CT crowd are fairly quick off the mark again. Loads of False Flag talk, expect the crisis actor claims to follow shortly.

One z-list celeb in the UK has implied it was a the result of UK Prime minister Teesa May trying to boost her falling pole ratings

I've seen one presenter on our station mention the murder just before the referendum as there being more to meets the eye. Suggesting a link and sinister intent and presumably false flag but without actually saying as much. Just the usual innuendo

Tensions are very high at the moment. The Andale Shopping Centre was evacuated earlier. Bars and venues within the massive police cordon are to stay closed. The police are using the Etihad Stadium (Manchester City) as a place for loved ones to meet.

Raids have taken place in Fallowfield and Whalley Range which are both hubs for the student and muslim communities. The killer had been named as Salmon Abedi of the Chorlton area who was Manchester born.

I have just returned from the vigil at Albert Square and community support and unity is fantastic.

Slightly off topic but I passed through a main rail station today and there were a number of armed police in view. It was a little disconcerting and to be hoped not a long term thing.

Just got back from a Hawkwind gig. The 02 in Bristol really ramped up security, arch detectors on the way in, full frisks as well, and police outside. They were unarmed, but was chatting to one officer and he said there were two armed response units in the city centre ready to be called.

Snopes has just put together an article debunking the major 'false flag' claims, I am reminded of the nonsense that turned up after Sandy Hook and even earlier after the 11th of September 2001.

On Tuesday evening, within hours of the alert level being raised to "critical" there were already numerous armed police at the main London rail station I use to go home from work. And this morning even at my small suburban station, in a town more than 30 miles outside London, there were two officers patrolling the platform, something I have never seen before.

This really is scraping the bottom of the CT barrel. The Manchester Arena holds 21,000 people. I don't know how many were at the concert, but footage I've seen seams to show the place was pretty full and people, remember a lot of them were kids and young teens were beginning to panic. Of course the announcer was going to try and calm the crowd, the last thing needed was 20,000 people stampeding to the exits and causing a massive crush, that could have lead to an even bigger disaster like the Ibrox stadium disaster of 1971. By staying calm and giving those instructions that announcer saved lives.

Claim that is currently doing the rounds on various conspiracy media. The claim is that the BBC made a "blunder" in uploading what they claim was a "daylight pre-recorded" video. The date on the BBC video is 22 May 2017 with the statement being read out during daylight hours. The bombing took place at around 22:30 (10:30 PM) British Summer Time (21:30 GMT/UTC).

BBC video.


This is easily debunked as the You Tube upload date is based on Pacific Standard Time (PST) which is currently 8 hours behind UK British Summer Time.
