Jihad attacks provoke “Islamophobia,” you see, so these bollards will help Britons, Muslim and non-Muslim, march together into the glorious multicultural future.
The focus is, as always, more on accustoming people to a permanent state of siege than to dealing with the root causes of jihad terror.
No official in Chester recommended any work to understand the effects of Islam’s jihad doctrine on the Muslim community. No one there seems to be pondering why these vehicular attacks happen in the first place.
Because that in itself would be “Islamophobic.” In this war, understand the enemy has been stigmatized as “bigotry.”
“Anti-terrorism measures put in place in Chester city centre to keep Christmas shoppers safe,” by Mark Dowling, Chester Standard, November 25, 2021:
ANTI-TERRORISM safety measures are to be put in place in Chester city centre in the run-up to Christmas.
Residents and tourists visiting Chester for festive shopping and to attend the Christmas market will see the measures in place from November 26.
The bollards, which are in place in strategic locations around the city centre to prevent vehicles entering, are usually raised in the ‘up’ position between 10.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Saturday. The bollards on Bridge Street and Watergate Street usually remain ‘up’ until 8pm Monday to Sunday.
These hours will be extended from November 26 until December 22, to improve security for the crowds who enjoy coming to Chester to visit the Christmas market and city centre attractions.
It comes as armed Cheshire police officers have been deployed at various times in Chester city centre, following a similar police initiative in Cheshire Oaks.
Bollards at the Town Hall Kiosk, St John’s Street, Bridge Street, and Watergate Street will be raised in the ‘up’ position, seven days a week, from 10.30am to 10pm for the duration of this period.
The only vehicles allowed access during these hours will be for exceptional and pre-arranged circumstances. These include bridal cars attending weddings at the Grosvenor Hotel, funeral cars attending funerals at Chester Cathedral, emergency service vehicles, emergency utility works vehicles and council waste collection vehicles….
