What better symbol of western strength and resilience than a pint of beer?
After a photo of a crowd of people fleeing the terror attacks on the London Bridge last week surfaced featuring a man clinging to his pint of beer, emboldened onlookers have used it as moral ammo against ISIS.
Why ISIS will never win. Attack just taken place but fella on right refuses to spill his pint.

For others, it was needed comic relief after a dark night.
This man paid London prices for a pint. He was not going to let the #LondonAttacks stop him from enjoying it.

And after what has been one of the gloomier months in British history, it was nice to see something seemingly small, a man running with his beer, turn into a symbol that helps thwart the vile fallout of terrorism.

People are hating on this bloke but after the scare he’s had he’ll bloody need that beer!

Nobody is ignoring the spilt blood but humour gives us the strength to fight for those who were hurt and killed. It’s just how we do it here
