a van was roped off and surrounded by police. yay!
of tcr? :s
but more towards the euston road end, by one of the furniture shops.
i like bombs, they're fun, until they kill people, they do great things to cow poo
Kill all doctors!
since Harold Shipman's profile got deleted from myspace... Damn you, Tom...
I think some voiceover thing at Bank was saying something about one at Hammersmith or somewhere too. Or something. Maybe.
I am clearly going to be late for wurk...
all over Cardiff (yes Cardiff) this morning, including the vans with the spinny cameras on the top, and police standing outside churches(?). EXCITING. i mean. scary.
bus drivers in Stockholm have been issue with bullet proof body armour
I kid you not
what a fucking joke - it makes me pretty angry to be honest
to be the most excessive thing ever.
Security is basically a psychological trick, though. You'll never actually create an inviolable security system, after all.
my taxes paid for that body armour! where's my fucking body armour?
driving a bus
A terrorist attack in a provincial city would be considerably easier and would still have pretty substantial impact.
I'd only be flippant if it was somewhere much smaller. Like when the police in my hometown (Morpeth, Population 12k) banned the sixth formers from holding an anti-war demo in the market square on the grounds that terrorist might use it as cover for an attack.
i don't think i was suggesting that.
Just because you said "Cardiff (yes Cardiff)" like it was unbelievable.
what the hell they going to do?
shoot a suicide bomber?
just inevitable jean charles de memezes (i used to be able to spell that) situations
all the trains to and from Paddington were halted because of an apparent lightning strike near southall or slough or some other miscellaneous S type town.
but really, Guns vs acts of God? i think we all know the winner there...
or it's a waste. If they see a bunch of vigilant police with weapons that will easily cut them down they may think twice.
they were photographing a bike with some bent wheels.
Terrsm strikes again!
i know im more likely to be hit by a bus than a victim of terrorism (touch wood, maybe) but i really dont want to die.
especially not by being blown into little pieces. i have so much more to do!
and is there anyway to prevent the little pieces? i'm not ready for kids...
sorry i'll shut up now
