Social media users have requested Thursday’s UK general election to be postponed after a terror attack on London Bridge killed six people, and three attackers were shot dead by police.
Mark Oxley is believed to have started the call on Twitter for political activity to be put on hold.
He tweeted a petition for people to sign and support the delay of the British elections. His tweet was shared by many.
Other supporters for this movement included actress and activist Anna Friel, who supported the call.
Now is not the time for a general election. Just what the perpetrators want, uncertainty, unrest. Call it off!!— Eugene Gaughan (@eugene_gaughan) June 3, 2017
