With news that German police have shot dead an axe wielding Afghani, who attacked people on a train, coming so quickly after the murders in Nice. Is it time we had more armed police in Britain.

By all accounts had the lorry in Nice managed to continue a bit further down the road he would have been into the main crowd who completely filled the street so the death toll would have been in the hundreds.

When drummer Lee Rigby was murdered the unarmed police and public had to wait around for 15 minutes for an armed response unit. Luckily for the people of London the killers were more interested in publicity rather than killing more people.

I'm not saying arm the likes of the 'Hobby Bobby' with the blue stripes round their hat but say anyone with a certain level of experience.

By the way I have always thought the old cliché of 'But the criminals will just have to arm themselves too.' to be total rubbish. I myself prefer to see armed police walking round Stanstead etc. What do you good people think?
