Media alert, 6pm today – An invitation to the Palace of Westminster

Journalists are invited to join survivors of the 7/7 London bombings at a special lecture concerning the threat of “home-grown terrorism”, taking place at the Palace of Westminster on October 15.

The VIP event will take place at the House of Commons tonight.

During the event critically-acclaimed author, former frontline soldier and political activist Neil Blower, who counts Prime Minister David Cameron and Leader of the Opposition Ed Miliband among his fans, will be giving a lecture about the themes of his new novel — Dividing Lines — which tells the story of an advertising executive who is trapped in an elevator with a suicide bomber.

His thought-provoking discussion will consider the threat of home-grown terrorism, address the menace of suicide bombers and question the risk that extremists pose on Britain’s streets.

Survivors of the 2005 7/7 terrorist attack – some of which will be available for media interview – are expected to attend the event, as well as representatives from terrorism victim support charity Foundation for Peace.

The audience will also feature members of the Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) including event sponsor Hazel Blears MP — Member of Parliament for Blower’s home city of Salford — and representatives of the Victory Services Club, the prestigious military member’s club.

Media places are strictly limited so to secure your entry, please RSVP to or by calling 0203 1027935 by 12 noon on Tuesday, October 15.
