This Might Not End Well: Journalist Poses With Sword Outside Parliament, Offers ISIS £50K To Fight Him

The bio for Andre Walker on the Observer website describes him as “Lobby Correspondent covering the work of the British Parliament and Prime Minister.” No where does it mention a proclivity for making unwise and hubristic challenges to radical extremists who are eager for a fight.

In the aftermath of the recent terror attacks in London, Walker thought it wise to tweet a challenge to ISIS while posing with a sword. Twitter quickly mocked his decision, but he doubled down, adding “Listen, terrorists are cowards, let’s not be ashamed to say that.”

For the sake of Walker’s safety, let’s hope that nothing comes from this challenge. But as many a parent have told their children growing up, “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.”
