The unexpected Conservative election victory of 2015 transformed British politics. Now an unprecedented Electoral Commission investigation has raised the question of whether it was even a fair fight. A few hours after dawn on 8 May 2015, the morning after his unexpected victory in the general election , David Cameron delivered a celebratory speech to the jubilant staff of Conservative campaign headquarters, at 4 Matthew Parker Street, Westminster. “I’m not an old man but I remember casting a vote in 1987 and that was a great victory,” he said. “I remember 2010, achieving that dream of getting Labour out and getting the Tories back in, and that was amazing. But I think this is the sweetest victory of them all.” The assembled Tory campaign staffers cheered and whistled as Cameron declared: “We are on the brink of something so exciting.” The election result would indeed change British politics, although not in the way that Cameron intended: the obliteration of the ConservativesLiberal Democrat coalition partners cleared the way for the referendum that set Britain on a path to leave the EU and ended Cameron’s political career.

He said he could not go into further details until there was confirmation from the police and security authorities. Prime Minister Theresa May is safe, a statement from her Downing Street office said, and she was seen getting into a car and being driven away from parliament. Lidington said an air ambulance was at the scene to take away casualties. TV pictures showed traffic halted on the nearby Westminster Bridge and emergency vehicles swarming around. The busy bridge was completely shut off to traffic. Armed police swarmed to the area which was quickly sealed off to the public. The incident came on the same day that Belgium was marking a year since its most deadly attack, when 32 people were killed in suicide bombings at Brussels Airport and a metro station. In July 2005, four British suicide bombers inspired by Al-Qaeda attacked London's transport system during rush hour, killing 52 people.

Standing outside her Downing Street residence after an emergency cabinet meeting, May said Britain's alert level would remain unchanged at level four, or "severe". "We will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart," said May, dressed in black. The prime minister was in parliament at the time of the attack and was ushered away in a silver car as gunfire rang out. 'Islamist-related terrorism' Rowley said on Wednesday police suspected they were dealing with "Islamist-related terrorism," adding that investigators believed they knew the assailant's identity. Queen Elizabeth II postponed her appearance on Thursday to open the new headquarters of London's Metropolitan Police, where the force's flag flew at half-mast following the attack. The attack came a year to the day after Islamic State jihadists killed 32 people in twin bomb attacks in Brussels and after a series of deadly assaults in Europe that had spared Britain – until Wednesday.
