"I hope and I believe that the attacks on London yesterday will be remembered not for how much they changed Londoners and the world but for how much they didn’t." – Jim Gleeson
"We’ll have a few beers, make as many sick jokes about it in pubs up and down the land as we can, and get on with our lives as normal. Other than causing the grief of too many innocent people, these cunts will have achieved precisely fuck all. We shall not be moved." – Nosemonkey (here are some sick jokes, of varying quality)
"An open letter to the terrorist cunts who tried to kill me today: Fuck you. You missed me. Better luck next time." – Non-trivial Andrew
"What the fuck do you think you’re doing? This is London. We’ve dealt with your sort before. You don’t try and pull this on us" – London News Review.
"If a bloke came at you with a knife, you’d fight him, not the guy down the road that he just asked for directions." – Munky.
"A friend of mine visits a strip pub, once a week, down by Grays Inn Road. Despite the bombs, he went along this afternoon, and was the only guy with four girls. But, he told me, he felt he had to do it – ‘otherwise the terrorists would have won’." – Sean Thomas
"I amuse[d] myself by inventing emergency train actions for all other possible colour codes" – Green Fairy
"Who’d have thought the French would take the Olympics so seriously? And if there’s one good thing about all this, at least 7-7 is a date the Americans can get the right way round." – Dave Weeden
"We should take a moment to pay tribute to the Tube… the Tube is a fundamental part of the fabric and personality of London itself." – Atrios
And you should read Ken’s full speech. I’m proud to have him representing my city.
Oh yeah, and to all you idiots suggesting we’ll cravenly give into terrorism, we won against the fucking IRA. They’ve stopped bombing, and Northern Ireland is still British. That’s a result. No, we didn’t murder every Catholic in Ireland: that doesn’t stop us from having won. Cretins.
While I’m enumerating idiots, SIAW are the most appalling bunch of sanctimonious pricks ever to exist. This isn’t news, and is only tangentially related to the bombing. Fuck them. Although R&B singer Omarion is marginally worse: "Omarion… would like his fans to pray that he has a safe trip and a safe return home". Damn, I hate ‘modern R&B’ and the witless posing arseholes who perform it. Oh, and fuck Fox News, even more than usual.
Digressing from the bombings, but staying on right-wing horrendousness, I hope everyone who supports this egregious and sick piece of legislation gets put to death by mistake. And then fucked by necrophiliacs.
