MANCHESTER – 22 Dead And 59 Injured In Arena Explosion, UK Election Suspended

21st Century Wire says…

We’re told that last night another ‘ISIS-inspired’ suicide terrorist attack took place in the UK. Amazingly, this event seemed uncannily timed with today’s OSCE-wide Counter-Terrorism Conference 2017 in Vienna, Austria. 

More incredibly, British Prime Minister Teresa May also declared that the ‘terrorists will never win’ before promptly moving to suspend the upcoming UK General Election.

Currently, the UK Parliament is also dissolved, and so there are no restraints on executive government control in the UK, which means that the UK could ramp-up its military operations in Syria – presumably under the banner narrative of “fighting ISIS.”

Stay tuned to 21WIRE for more investigative updates on this story.
