Theresa May tribute to country’s “heroes” helped in terrorist attacks in Christmas message

Vastavam web: British Prime Minister Theresa May today paid tribute to the country’s “heroes” who helped victims of terrorist attacks and the fire at Grenfell Tower in London in her annual Christmas message.She also urged Britons to take pride in the country’s Christian heritage at Christmas.”As we gather with our friends and family, I want to say thank you to all those whose service to others means they will be spending time away from their loved ones this Christmas,” she said.The British Prime Minister, a regular church-goer and daughter of a vicar, also made a specific reference to the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

She added: “Let us take pride in our Christian heritage and the confidence it gives us to ensure that in Britain you can practice your faith free from question or fear.”This Christmas, whatever our faith, let us come together confident and united in the values we share.” In contrast, Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s Christmas message made little mention of religion as he said that Christmas was “a time of the year when we think about others”.”We think of others such as carers who look after loved ones, people with disabilities or dementia.”
