Military Personnel In London Advised Not to Wear Uniforms Off Base

In the aftermath of yesterday’s horrifying attack on the streets of London, citizens are being urged to return to a sense of normalcy.

First, Prime Minister David Cameron said this:

… the best response was for everyone to “go about our normal lives”.

Then, London Mayor Boris Johnson said this:

… urged Londoners to “go about their lives in the normal way”.

Yet, after urging people to return to normal, military personnel were advised the exact opposite, and asked not to wear their uniforms off base.

Because as we all know, it’s the uniform that is the problem.

Via the Telegraph:

Commanders have advised troops not to wear uniform travelling to and from work or outside bases following the brutal killing of a member of the military close to Woolwich barracks.

Defence sources said the order had been given that uniform should not be worn by those travelling alone, or on public transport as a “common sense precaution” immediately after the killing

A source stressed the order was temporary while investigations into the killing carried on and the decision would be reviewed in the next few days.

If British troops have to fear wearing their own uniforms on the streets of their city, then this fight may already be lost.
