Sky News has jumped the shark once again and their latest baffling report has left more than a few perturbed.
Journalist Martin Brunt was reporting on the fallout from the attack on a church in Normandy this week that left a priest dead, and chose to ignore any sense of decency and do so from a churchyard in England. Before entering he tells the camera "this sign at the church door says that everybody's welcome."
Brunt enters the church for a moment and then exits before saying (with utter seriousness): "There are about a dozen worshippers in there and one priest. If I was a terrorist, I could have killed them all."
Most people have come to the conclusion that this is the closest to Brass Eye or Alan Partridge that Sky News has come yet.

Don't worry about Martin Brunt's comments. The German police have a solution. https://t.co/0adCmZ66oK

This is so much like Brass Eye I can't fathom how Martin Brunt kept a straight face. https://t.co/mDcxn4QGrz

If I'd been a terrorist, I could have killed them all. #martinbrunt
