英國首相Theresa May(德蕾莎·梅伊)演講

0:00

Mr. speaker yesterday an act of

0:03

terrorism tried to silence our democracy

0:07

but today we meet as normal as

0:10

generations have done before us and as

0:13

future generations will continue to do

0:15

to deliver a simple message we are not

0:19

afraid and our resolve(決定;決心;決意)will never waver(動搖)

0:23

in the face of terrorism and we meet

0:26

here in the oldest of all Parliament’s(議會;國會)

0:29

because we know that democracy and the

0:32

values it entails(使必要;牽涉) will always prevail(佔優勢,占上風)

0:36

those values free speech, liberty, human

0:41

rights and the rule of law are embodied(具體表現;體現)

0:43

here in this place but they are shared

0:47

by free people around the world.

0:50

a terrorist came to the place where people

0:53

of all nationalities and cultures gather

0:56

to celebrate what it means to be free

0:58

and he took out his rage

1:00

 

indiscriminately(無差別) against innocent men

1:03

women and children.  Mr. speaker this was

1:07

an attack on free people everywhere,and

1:10

on behalf of the British people I would

1:14

like to thank our friends and allies

1:15

around the world who have made it clear

1:18

that they stand with us at this time

1:23

what happened on the streets of

1:25

Westminster yesterday afternoon second as all
/ˌɑːf.təˈnuːn/

1:27

while there is an ongoing police

1:30

investigation the house(議會;議院) will understand

1:33

that there are limits to what I can say

1:35

but having been updated by police and

1:38

security officials let me set out(開始,著手) what

1:41

at this stage I can tell the house.

1:44

At approximately 2:40 p.m. yesterday,

1:46

a single attacker drove his vehicle at

1:49

speed in two innocent pedestrians who

1:52

were crossing Westminster Bridge killing

1:54

two people and injuring around 40 more
/ˈɪn.dʒər/

1:57

in addition to 12 Britons(英國人) admitted to(接收…入院)

2:01

hospital we know that the victims

2:03

include three French children, two
/ˈtʃɪl.drən/

2:06

Romanians, 4 South Koreans, one German, one

2:11

Pole(波蘭人, Poland) one Irish(愛爾蘭人) one Chinese

2:14

one Italian, one American and two Greeks.

2:18

and we are in close contact with the

2:20

governments of the countries of all

2:22

those affected. The injured also included

2:26

three police officers who were returning

2:28

from an event to recognize their bravery

2:31

two of those three remain in a serious

2:34

condition. Mr. speaker, the attacker then

2:37

left the vehicle and approached a police
/left/   /ˈviː.ə.kəl/

2:40

officer at carriage gates attacking that

2:42

officer with a large knife before he was

2:45

shot dead by an armed police officer.

2:48

tragically as the house will know forty

2:51

eight-year-old PC Keith Palmer was

2:53

killed.

2:54

PC Palmer had devoted his life to the

2:58

service of his country.  He had been a

3:00

member of the parliamentary and
/ˌpɑː.lɪˈmen.tər.i/
3:02

diplomatic protection command for 15
/ˌdɪp.ləˈmæt.ɪk/

3:04

years and a soldier in the Royal

3:08

Artillery(炮兵(部队)) before that. he was a husband

3:11

and a father killed doing a job he loved.

3:15

he was every inch a hero and his actions

3:19

will never be forgotten I know the whole

3:23

house will join me in sending our

3:25

deepest condolences(哀悼(詞)) to his family and to

3:28

the families and friends of all those

3:30

who’ve been killed or injured in

3:32

yesterday’s awful attacks I know also
/ˈɔːl.səʊ/
3:35

that the house will wish to thank all

3:38

those who acted with such speed and

3:40

professionalism yesterday to secure this
/prəˈfeʃ.ən.əl.ɪ.zəm/
3:42

place and ensure we are able to meet as

3:45

we are doing today. Mr. speaker at 7:30 last night,

3:49

I chaired(主持(會議等)) a meeting of the

3:51

government’s Emergency Committee Cobra

3:53

and we’ll have further briefings(簡報) and

3:55

meetings with security officials today.

3:57

The threat level to the UK has been set

4:00

at severe, meaning attack is highly

4:03

likely for some time. This is the second highest threat level.

4:06

The highest level ,critical, means there is specific

4:12

intelligence that an attack is imminent.(臨近的,即將發生的)
/ˈɪm.ɪ.nənt/
4:14

As there is no such intelligence, the

4:17

independent Joint Terrorism analysis center
/əˈnæl.ə.sɪs/
英国联合反恐分析中心(Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre)

4:19

has decided that the threat level

4:21
will not change in the light of(有鑑於,because of)

4:23

yesterday’s attack.

4:25

Mr. speaker the whole country will want

4:28

to know who was responsible for this

4:30

atrocity(暴行) and the measures that we are

4:32

taking to strengthen our security,

4:34

including here in Westminster.

4:38

A full counterterrorism investigation is

4:40

already underway. Hundreds of our police

4:43

and security officers have been working

4:45

through the night to establish(查實;確定;證實,證明)
/ɪˈstæb.lɪʃ/
4:47

everything possible about this attack

4:49

including its preparation, motivation, and

4:52

whether there were any associates(朋友;同事;(生意)夥伴)

4:54

involved in its planning and while the

4:57

remain limits on what I can say at this

4:59

stage. I can confirm that overnight the

5:02

police have searched six addresses and

5:04

made eight arrests in Birmingham(伯明翰) and London.

5:08

Mr Speaker(主席) it is still believed that

5:11

this attacker acted alone and the police

5:14

have no reason to believe there are

5:16

imminent(迫在眉睫的) further attacks on the public.

5:19

his identity is known to the police and

5:22

mi5(軍情五處, Military Intelligence, Section 5) and when operational considerations

5:25

allow he will be publicly identified

5:28

what I can confirm is that the man was

5:32

British born and that at some years ago he
/bɔːn
5:35

was once investigated by mi5 in relation

5:38

to concerns about violent extremism. He
/ɪkˈstriː.mɪ.zəm/

5:41

was a peripheral(次要的,附帶的) figure the case is
/pəˈrɪf.ər.əl/

5:44

historic he was not part of the current

5:47

intelligence picture. There was no prior
/praɪər/
5:50

intelligence of his intent or of the

5:52

plot intensive investigations continue

5:56

and as Acting Deputy Commissioner Rollie

5:59

confirmed last night our working

6:01

assumption is that the attacker was

6:04

inspired by Islamist ideology(思想(體系),意識形態) Mr Speaker
/ˈɪz.lə.mɪst

6:08

we know the threat from Islamist

6:10

terrorism is very real but while the

6:13

public should remain utterly(完全) vigilant

6:15

they should not and will not be cowed by

6:18

this threat

6:20

as Acting Deputy Commissioner Olli has

6:23

made clear we are stepping up policing

6:26

to protect communities across the

6:28

country and to reassure the public and

6:30

as a precautionary measure this will

6:33

mean increasing the number of patrols in

6:35

cities across the country with more

6:37

police and more armed police on the

6:38

streets since June 2013 our police
/dʒuːn
6:43

security and intelligence agencies have

6:45

successfully disrupted 13 separate

6:48

terrorist plots(秘密計劃;陰謀) in Britain following the

6:52

2015 strategic defence and security
/strəˈtiː.dʒɪk/
6:54

review we protected the police budgets

6:57

for counterterrorism and committed to

6:59

increase cross government spending on

7:00

counterterrorism by 30 percent in real

7:03

terms over the course of this Parliament

7:05

and over the next five years we will

7:07

invest in extra two and a half billion

7:09

in building our global security and

7:11

intelligence network employing over

7:14

1,900 additional staff at mi5 mi6 and

7:18

GCHQ and more than doubling our global

7:21

network of counterterrorism experts

7:23

working with priority countries across

7:25

Europe ,the Middle East ,Africa and Asia

7:30

Mr. speaker in terms of security here in

7:33

Westminster we should be clear first of

7:35

all that an attacker attempted to break

7:38

into Parliament and was shot dead within

7:41

20 yards of the gate. If his intention

7:45

was to gain access to this building, we

7:47

should be clear that he did not succeed

7:51

the police heroicly did their job but

7:57

as is routine the police together with

7:59

the house authorities are reviewing the

8:01

security of the parliamentary estate

8:03

coordinated with the Cabinet Office who

8:06

have responsibility for the security

8:07

measures in place around the government

8:09

secure zone all of us in this house have

8:13

a responsibility for the security and

8:15

safety of our staff and advice is

8:18

available for members who need it. mr.

8:22

speaker yesterday we saw the worst of

8:24

humanity but we will remember the best

8:27

we will remember the extraordinary
/ɪkˈstrɔː.dɪn.ər.i/

8:29

efforts to save the life of PC Keith

8:31

Palmer including those by my right

8:34

honourable friend

8:35

the member for Bournemouth east and we

8:39

will remember the exceptional(卓越的,傑出的,) bravery of

8:41

our police security and emergency

8:44

services who once again ran towards the
/ˈsɜː.vɪs/

8:47

danger even as they encouraged others to

8:49

move the other way. on behalf of the
/bɪˈhɑːf/

8:52

whole country I want to pay tribute to them

8:55

for the work they have been doing

8:57

to reassure the public treat the injured

8:59

and bring security back to the streets

9:01

of our capital city that they have lost

9:04

one of their own in yesterday’s attack

9:06

only makes their calmness and

9:09

professionalism all the more remarkable

9:13

Mr. speaker a lot has been said

9:16

since terror struck London yesterday much more

9:20

will be said in the coming days but the

9:23

greatest response lies not in the words

9:25

of politicians but in the everyday

9:28

actions of ordinary people for beyond

9:31

these walls today in scenes repeated in

9:34

towns and cities across the country

9:35

millions of people are going about their

9:38

days and getting on with their lives

9:40

the streets are as busy as ever the

9:43

offices fall the coffee shops and cafes

9:45

Bustling(熙熙攘攘的,忙亂的) as I speak millions will be

9:48

boarding trains and aeroplanes to travel

9:50

to London and to see for themselves the

9:52

greatest city on earth it is in these

9:55

actions millions of acts of normality

9:58

that we find the best response to

10:01

terrorism. a response that deny

10:04

is our enemies their victory that

10:06

refuses to let them win that shows we

10:09

will never give in a response driven by

10:14

that same spirit that drove our husband

10:17

and father to put himself between us and

10:20

our attacker and to pay the ultimate

10:23

price a response that says to the men

10:27

and women who propagate(傳播,散播;宣傳) this hate and

10:29

evil you will not defeat us mr. speaker

10:34

let this be the message from this house

10:36

and this nation today our values will

10:40

prevail and I commend this statement to

10:43

the house
