The father of Jack Merritt, a victim in last Friday’s London Bridge terrorist attack, has shared a tweet branding PM Boris Johnson’s response to the vile murders, as “beyond disgusting.” David Merritt, whose 25 year-old son was one of two victims killed by convicted terrorist Usman Khan in a savage stabbing spree, appeared to condemn Johnson for using the death of Jack as justification for harsher sentencing. He shared a tweet on Monday morning from Ash Sarkar, a contributing editor at Novara Media, that also hit out at Home Secretary Priti Patel. Just a day after the murders, Johnson declared that a Tory government led by him would toughen terror sentences and stop criminals entering the UK from the EU. He also claimed there would be a crackdown on early release for convicted terrorists, insisting that “the practice of automatic early release where you cut a sentence in half” isn’t working.
