Thousands of police officers lined the streets… – Press Association

Thousands of police officers lined the streets of London ahead of the funeral of PC Keith Palmer.

Police Constable Palmer was the officer who, despite being unarmed, attempted to take down the jihadi terrorist Khalid Masood at the gates to the Houses of Parliament in Westminster (London), after Masood had already killed or mortally injured five people and injured 50 more in a ramming attack with an automobile. PC Palmer was stabbed fatally while attempting to subdue the attacker, who was subsequently shot by other, armed, officers.

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which out techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
