Only one party has called for the continuation of the campaign non-stop, on the basis that this is what the terrorists want: suspend campaigns or postpone elections.

Other parties will suspend, for a shorter period than last time due to the closer proximity of the elections.

Do you think suspending the campaign is an indispensable sign of respect for the victims, or a dangerous yielding to the will of their assailants?

(I voted this morning at the French Embassy, and was very aware of the risk of attacks. Though it seems going early is safer: terrorists seem to very lazy; they are not early birds)

No! You don't suspend democracy because of those who don't want it. It makes these fuckers win. And they should never win!!

How would I vote in the UK elections from a French Embassy? A week ahead of the poll?

[To vote in the general election in the UK, when abroad, it can only be done by proxy or by post (Only proxy for NI). Not at an Embassy.]

I voted in the French Embassy, so it has to be a French election: the general election's first round... a week ahead of the poll... [Second round next week-end]

I was confused when you mentioned London and you were vague about what campaign you were talking about.

Understandably.

But the key was not where and why: it was that whether we want it or not, terror attacks change our minds and attitudes. That, and the fact that terrorists tend to sleep in, probably from all the getting high and doing gay porn all night.

So basically you are asking should elections in every country in the world be suspended until IS stops bombing.

Nope.
1- I am only asking about the current UK situation, or similar situations in the country where they happen. The footnote about the Embassy was just a footnote. The key of the footnote was not the key of the OP/Thread.
3- I am not asking about election suspension, I am asking about campaigning suspension.

Thus the title:
Latest London Attack: Should The Campaign Be Suspended?

At the same time, these campaign events mobilize the police and the army to protect the high-profile campaigners.
Which means that such resources cannot be used to investigate or protect. Thus, it makes sense to cancel a number of high profile events, which are only campaigning after all and not worth the lives they could help protect.

And that energy saved campaigning less can help ensure that the vote itself is much more secure; that the police is rested enough, to ensure the security on the day of the vote itself.

I would oppose canceling or postponing the election itself, but I see the logic of not doing high-profile campaigning events for a day or two. It does not mean door-to-door campaigning has to stop either...
