Mas Sobre Londres

I thought this Wade character's post was pretty funny:

burning in fear??!!? Ha!! Not this Brit. With my upper lip fixed stiff, i hoot and mock these jihadis. Wankers one and all. I’d like to see ‘em on Celebrity Terrorist Island, the IRA’d make mincemeat of them…

This one manages to be rude, funny, serious, and responsible all in a couple of paragraphs.
An open letter

to the terrorist cunts who tried to kill me today:

Fuck you. You missed me. Better luck next time.

Update: I am coping with the shock as only a Brit (and maybe an Irishman...) knows how - I'm getting well and truly pissed.

Update 2: Thanks for all your thoughts and words, everyone. Going to get a shower, get dressed and then get the tube into work. Life goes on.

Update 3: Back home, safe and sound. Can't thank everyone enough for visiting and leaving their thoughts. One last word: Please - no politically charged comments at least until they've dug out the bodies of those Londoners still buried 100ft underneath King's Cross in a tube carriage. Time to grieve, not score points.

Again I go back to the Jon Stewart piece the other day, commenting on the lack of 'country songs' after the attack. More than likely, there will be none of the vulgar 'remembrance' T-shirts either!
