Thank you everyone for your messages of support since the terrible events yesterday. It is beyond comprehension that the voices of hate and evil can attack a place that is not only a forum for peaceful debate, but can injure or even kill innocent members of the public - even schoolchildren - all of whom are in our thoughts today.
Yesterday was a vivid reminder of the sacrifice of those who keep us safe, from @metpoliceuk to the @UKParliament staff, whose professionalism was outstanding. The entire @HouseofCommons is united in their thanks and support, and all thoughts are with the family of brave PC Keith Palmer - we will forever be in his debt.
Parliament has been sitting as normal today, with flags flying at half mast - or as close to normal as can be in the circumstances - I have been there, working on your behalf and with all other MPs, ensuring that those who seek to silence our democracy will never succeed. We will all move forward together, and our values will prevail.
