    My bad, with apologies
    Just because Kerr does not put his condolences on here does not mean that he has no sympathy for the people involved in this disgusting attack. I don't believe for one minute that Kerr is any less horrified by this attack than you or me.

    Of course we should, but surely extreme views should be challenged. Extremists have carried this barbaric act out.

    Roly, I have never seen anything like Right wing extremism of the kind demonstrated in the appalling acts in Christchurch, on this site.

    To be fair we were talking about what the gunman wrote on his clip and how what happened here and other towns helped radicalise the gunman, not off topic.

    Islamic terrorism is still the bigger problem, in the last 30 days there have been 113 terror attacks in 20 countries, in which 813 people were killed and 818 injured.

    Maybe we should be asking why the media are only interested in terrorism and victims of terrorism in the West?

    3. But it’s John who you seek to shout down and 'police' for suggesting that gf and Jolly/Grist are talking cobblers?

    That’s some weird sense of morality/judgement that you have going on there sota.
    Totally agree with you Kerr.

    John 2 is extremely intelligent and always brings well thought out arguments to these posts. I differ from him politically but it would be a sad day on MM if we can't hear his opinions.

    But where do you draw the line?

    For example there were probably more Muslims killed in the Ethiopian Airlines Max 8 crash than killed in New Zealand.

    A minutes silence for those deaths?

    Or is a crazed gunman killing spree special?

    There's so many disasters globally that you could have a minutes silence every game.

    Which is feasible but it would lose impact.

    Blimey, I'm almost in agreement with you there.

    New Zealand is a rugby nation and so it is clear why the atrocities would have been marked within both forms of that sport in this country.

    There's an argument that the very close links between the UK and NZ might have caused there to be some acknowledgement within the football world, but it's a matter of judgement and I would be slow to say that the FA called it incorrectly.
