UK: British PM speaks to country, says 'enough is enough', blames Islam

(London) The British PM, Theresa May has warned that there has been “far too much tolerance of extremism” in the UK and promised to step up the fight against Islamic terrorism following the London Bridge attack, saying “enough is enough”.
