Wasn't going to post anything here . . . being OT and all that . . . I wasn't working in Central London today. I know that whole area like the back of my hand! My partner is fine . .. buses are being used outside Central area. Kings Cross does have a serious incident . . oh dear .. not good .. .
6 "incidents"; bus; and underground "incident" of major implications.
Glad you ok Grazie.
Plan was to visit Dorchester Hotel, Mayfair this morning. Glad I didn't go. Filming there Monday evening. Suppose to be filming at the Guildhall Monday morning. One hopes what happened so far is the end of it.
Kids and other Family are all OK (as far as we can tell). Been on IM all morning (no sleep tonight for me). My daughter (Jo - who you met Grazie)...just IM'd me that "a scuicide bomber was just shot dead in Canary Wharf".... that's not being reported YET on any of the channels here.
We shouldn't forget that this madness started well before 9/11 when they targeted moderate Islamic countries. When that wasn't effective they turned their attention to western countries that were supporting the moderate secular Islamic countries.
apit34356 "Grazie, how the cell phone service? I've notifed a lot of busy signals." . .the authorities & cell phone operators immeadiately close-down the networks to "non-essential" users to allow the Services get to do their work.
All due respect Patrick ,
Im sure this had nothing to do with the Olympic choice.
For one, this type of coordinated attack took some time too plan, and I doubt they planned it for all cities in the running. And I seriously doubt they had inside info on London being picked.Besides the terrorists dont hate the Olympics, they hate Freedom.
Besides I know that the terorrists who did this are idiots, but they aren't so dumb as to set detonation timers off by 7 yrs !
More likely to do with G8, but thats just my stupid speculation, its probably just that the U.K. has been one of our strongest allies.
England has had to deal with more terrorism in the past with things like the IRA.
My hat goes off to them in the way the people handled this ordeal today.
