I spoke with BBC Radio Coventry yesterday about Sunday’s mass killing at a Texas church which left 26 people dead and dozens wounded, including 10 in critical condition.

The stark assessment — a repeat of the analysis after the October 1 shootings in Las Vegas that killed 58 people, after the Orlando nightclub shootings that killed 49 people in June 2016, after the Sandy Hook killings of 26 children and teachers in December 2012: “Nothing will be done” to limit, let alone prevent, more episodes that will take their place among “deadliest shootings” in US history.

There’s no political will….It gets a bit tiring to hear President Trump and other politicians say “thoughts and prayers” when this is becoming a ritual almost every couple of weeks.

If you believe in thoughts and prayers, then why don’t you believe in action as well to stop this pandemic?
