DescriptionTimed by ISIS to frustrate Indyref2 vote in Scotland

On 22 March 2017 an attack occurred in central London, when a man drove into a number of pedestrians, killing two on Westminster Bridge.[1] He then reportedly fatally stabbed a police officer, PC Keith Palmer within the grounds of the Palace of Westminster, before being shot dead by other officers.[2]

An intelligence asset?

According to Prime Minister Theresa May, the British-born lone nut, Khalid Masood,[3] was known to MI5 – "but had been dismissed as a 'peripheral figure'.”[4]

In a Veterans Today article, Kevin Barrett suggested that the Westminster attack, coming exactly one year after the Mass murder in Brussels, might have been an Operation Gladio/B operation. Barrett questioned why when wielding only a knife, the perpetrator was shot dead, observing that this would avoid the need of a trial:

Was alleged London attacker Khalid Masood “on the radar” of MI5 (like almost all false flag patsies) because he was an intelligence asset?[5]

Indyref2 debate

The attack coincided with a debate leading to a vote in Holyrood on whether Scotland should hold a second referendum on Scottish independence before Brexit is finalised. The debate was suspended as the attack unfolded, to be resumed on Tuesday 28 March, and the vote in the Scottish Parliament rescheduled for 14:20 hours.[6]
