So this time it is Stockholm. If there is nothing new to say it is because nobody has anything new to learn. On Wednesday of this week what was billed as a ‘Service of Hope’ took place in Westminster Abbey. One hopes that it consoled those injured and mourning. But the tone of the sermon by the Dean of Westminster suggested that the word ‘blind’ should perhaps have been put in before ‘hope’. In the sermon at the inter-faith service the Very Reverend John Hall said that Khalid Masood’s attack had left the nation ‘bewildered’. ‘Bewildered and hopeful’ is as good an epitaph as anyone has come up with for this age.
