  • "There is currently no specially allocated government funding for victims of terror. While they can claim money…. survivors of the Manchester terror attack say that they are forced to wait years for funds to come through…" — Gabriella Swerling, The Telegraph, March 18, 2020.
  • It is paradoxical, to say the least, that in the era of "victimhood culture" — in which a multitude of identity groups compete for the prize of most victimized — where even subjectively perceived slights are registered by UK police as "non-criminal incidents" — victims of terror, who have suffered severe physical and psychological life-disrupting injury as the result of actual manifested hatred, have to fight for their rights.
