EVERYONE has been urged to just stop and think about what they are going to say.

Experts stressed that right now there is nothing to be gained from blaming an entire religion for an atrocity or accusing people of being racists or appeasers.

Professor Henry Brubaker, from the Institute for Studies, said: “Right now, all we know for sure is that no-one has faintest idea what to do.

“It is just fucked up and horrible.”

He added: “I know you’re just desperate to say something really emotive and accusatory and maybe even connect it to some other issue. But honestly, just don’t.

“Maybe – this time – we could all just stop for a bit. Who knows, we might even learn something?”
