You are outraged!

The events of recent days have only confirmed what you already suspected: you are outraged. You are a reasonable person, but you have been pushed too far by the complete failure to tackle head-on the threat posed by the dark forces that lurk just beneath the surface of our society.

Those responsible must face up to the consequences of their actions. You will no longer put up with buck-passing, and demand that all sides reach agreement before it is too late. You will settle for nothing less.

The authorities can shrug their faces and say "I don't know" all they like: these rehashed old arguments must not be allowed to conceal the real issue, which is that public outrage at the present state of affairs has reached unprecedented levels.

Something must be done. The alternative is too bleak for you to contemplate.
