Labour paris attack Charlie Hebdo

Labour parliamentarians and staffers from both Commons and Lords came together this morning to show their solidarity with the people of France in the wake of yesterday’s terror attack in Paris.

Many held pens aloft – a symbol of support for the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists who were murdered – while others held signs that read: “Je suis Charlie”. Click on the image to enlarge.

France held a minute’s silence to honour the victims this morning, with many more around the world choosing to join in simultaneously. This follows a vigil in London’s Trafalgar Square last night.

    Was Keith Vaz there – the guy who demonstrated against Salman Rushdie and wanted to get his book banned? If so then I’m not really interested.

      Nope he stayed away because I suspect Miliband said to him, you go your gone.

      But do not worry the one and only Blair will be making a statement soon about banning pens because they are used as a symbol against the faith.
