A guy recently launched from jail for a terrorism offence killed two people today in a terrorist assault that has been leapt on by politicians in advance of the election up coming 7 days.
The attacker, Usman Khan, had been attending a meeting on the rehabilitation of offenders. He killed Saskia Jones, 23, and Jack Merritt, 25, and was himself shot useless by law enforcement.
The Guardian’s residence affairs correspondent, Jamie Grierson, tells Anushka Asthana that sentencing, rehabilitation and parole are all emotive topics that are finest debated outside the house of an election.
Also nowadays: the Guardian’s diplomatic editor, Patrick Wintour, on the arrival of Donald Trump for a Nato summit. Will he be ready to resist an intervention in the standard election marketing campaign?
