Good to hear your troop's doing fine. I've just found out my girlfriend's brother was in one of the areas, yards away when the bomb went off but thankfully unharmed - just stuck in London. Every time I think how lucky I am, I feel sick.brewnog said:I've just finally found out that my other friend who lives in central London is ok too, as are all her friends. It was a close call for her, too; her current art exhibition is in the building opposite the bus bomb, but she couldn't get close to it due to the chaos caused by the earlier bombs! The world works in a funny way, sometimes.
Very true. I've heard quite a few jokes (and seen some cartoons!) about this mornings' events already; many of them in pretty bad taste. The odd thing is, where such jokes might normally be so sick as to have them postponed for a week or so, it serves as a nifty form of relief. Even Blair and Livingstone's messages took the form "don't let the bastards grind you down".
I haven't heard any sick jokes at the expense of victims and their families, I'm glad to hear. Dunkirk spirit is one thing, turning misery into a figure of fun is another.
Did you see Clarke's interview with Paxman? I thought he came across very well. Made me even more glad Blunkett got the elbow.
