Well.....there was that one time where a bomb exploded a bus whilst being transported...killed the luckless Irishman and no one else...


Yeah but I never believed a word of that - only the driver & bomber on bus, bomber transports live, fused bomb!!, bomb explodes, driver walks away. Wasn't it the time of the PIRA/SAS/INLA 'feud'? Always seemed a 'fortunate' story to me.

I just watched Tony Blair address the nation from Scotland. He was visibly shaken. He intends to return to London within the next few hours and then return to the G8 later this evening/tomorrow.

They can't get everyone. Guranteed there are many failed attacks for every successfull one.

BTW Tube stations and the Northern Line were closed at 7.30 this Morning ie 1.5 hours before the explosions - no explanation given!

I hope that they are scouring the airports also...a hit there would be doubly tragic .

dh, subz: I don't agree that this is a ploy to rush through the ID cards. I have more faith in humanity than that.

UK MOD - no military involved in rescue / evac plan. There is a London-based TA QRF force for major emergencies they've not been deployed - yet!

i just watched that also but also noticed how little he looked into the camera as he normally does - seemed to be looking eyes down mostly with occasional glances to the sides

what i will be interested in seeing is what happens with the investigations into camera footage... ALL tube stations and buses and roads in london have so many cameras fitted that whoever did this will have been filmed - no question about that. so, if it turns out that lots of cameras werent working today....

btw, does anyone know what was due to be discussed at G8 today?

I'm in Poole (roughly 100 miles from london) and the train station and bridge going over the station has been closed. no reason given but probably precautionary along the same lines as the closures in brigton and swindon.

Al-Qaida has claimed responsibility for the series of blasts that shook central London during rush hour on Thursday morning. Blair has left the G8 meeting for the capital. At least two have been confirmed dead and scores injured in the seven blasts on the city's transportation system.

Another email just came in, apparently a suicide bomber has just been shot dead by police in Canary Wharf.

Waiting to confirm.

Altogether, there have been 6 explosions, the BBC are saying that 5 underground explosions and 1 Bus explosion, 2 people have already been confirmed as fatalitys, top analysists say that the are "Almost Sure" that Al-Quaeda is behind the bombings, but they are not ruling out Anarchists and other groups.
Paris has raised security and heathrow will be closed. Tony Blair is going to London today to hold meetings and will return to the G8 summit later.
London has Been brought to a standstill, authoritys believe that this was not intended to be a high fatality attack, just that they wanted London to be brought to a halt and for the world to take note.
