Yet, Jimmy Carter was dumped from the presidency after serving just one four-year term, the first elected president to be defeated in office since 1932. Elder statesman . As Mr Carter continued working across the world, his reputation as a failed one-term president soon began to subside.

Dave Merritt wrote in the Guardian that the death of his son, who worked as a coordinator for the Learning Together prison rehabilitation and education programme, run by the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Criminology, was being used to reinforce the worldview his son had fought against.

“Unlike many of us, Jack did not just go to work. He lived and breathed fire in his pursuit of a better world for all humanity, particularly those most in need,” he wrote.

“If Jack could comment on his death – and the tragic incident on Friday 29 November – he would be livid. We would see him ticking it over in his mind before a word was uttered between us. Jack would understand the political timing with visceral clarity.”

The family of Saskia Jones, also a volunteer on the programme, praised her for having a “great passion” for supporting victims of crime. “She was intent on living life to the full and had a wonderful thirst for knowledge, enabling her to be the best she could be,” a family statement said.

  Head of UK armed forces rejects Trump's claim IS is defeated The head of Britain's armed forces has publicly contradicted Donald Trump's repeated claims of victory over Islamic State. General Sir Nicholas Carter also told an audience in central London that Syria is a "tinderbox that could very easily ignite a wider conflagration".Sir Nicholas, using an alternative name for Islamic State, said during the annual Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) lecture: "Daesh, and the extremist ideas it represents, has absolutely not been defeated."Indeed the threat from terrorism has proliferated - as was sadly demonstrated once again in last Friday's attack at London Bridge.

Johnson, the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, and the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, attended a vigil on Monday in memory of the victims at Guildhall Yard, near the scene of the attack in central London.

Khan, who had been living in Stafford, was given permission to travel to London by the police and probation service. He was wearing a fake suicide vest and was shot dead by police on London Bridge after he was tackled by members of the public, including ex-prisoners from the conference.

The foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, said on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I sympathise with the anguish of the family and can’t imagine what they must be going through. The first duty that we’ve got as a government is to take every measure we can to make sure that we don’t see further families going through that same suffering and anguish.

“Our duty is to protect the public and that’s why, and you mentioned prison places, our manifesto is clear, we don’t want to cut those, we want to increase them by 10,000. Of course, we want to reform and rehabilitate criminal offenders where that’s possible but I think, in this case and in the level of very serious dangerous, criminal offenders, it’s clear that some of those we will struggle to be sure that we can reform, that they will rehabilitate. We are absolutely clear, we will not allow the release of people on to the streets who present a danger.”
