The United Kingdom Parliament was put on lockdown this morning after armed police arrested a man suspected of carrying a knife outside the gates to the Palace of Westminster, the TIME reported.

London's Metropolitan Police released a statement saying a man "was arrested on suspicion of possession of a knife" near to the Palace of Westminster at 11.10 a.m. local time. "There are no reports of any injuries," the statement added.

There were shouts of "knife knife knife" before the man was brought down by a taser, according to a journalist who witnessed the incident. "Our superb police have handled the situation brilliantly," the witness wrote on Twitter.

    The state the STATE (of UK ) has come to - They should be even looking out for razor blades ! - Question yourselves more on why you'll have come to this situation ? -- "As you sow so shall you reap." Bible, Galatians VI (King James Version)

    If only UK minded its own "business " - then they would have had a peace . Reminds one of the Cole Porter song - "YOUR (UK) BUSINESS IS YOUR BUSINESS AND MY (other country's ) BUSINESS IS MINE "

    If you are so paranoid in looking out for knives (very soon even for razors blades, pins and clips) - please try and experience how the innocent children look up at the sky to try escaping your bombs of mass destruction in the Middle east.

    wonder how the "knife knife knife" shouts originated and causing the man to be " arrested on suspicion of possession of a knife" . and as reported "Our superb police have handled the situation brilliantly," BUT this opens up for more "brilliant" situations when the general public start shouting out at any harmless individual walking on the street - "ELEMENTARY MY DEAR WATSON"

    "Our superb Army handled the situation brilliantly" For Sri Lanka this was branded as HR Violations. Funny...!!!
