So the inevitable attack that has been upon us for years took place today. Even though we all expected it to take place in the capital and in an area like The Underground we were taken by surprise, certainly so the World Leaders who in a twisted piece of irony were in Scotland discussing how to make the World a better, safer place.

It was a very chilling day for me, listening to the radio during work, the news coming in every 15 minutes reporting worse events with every bulletin. It was like September 11th all over again. The BBC Website even crashed and then had to resort to a ‘Lite Version’ due to demand.

Although many people were tragically killed and the public transport brought to a stand still for a few hours we are still living our lives and with total respect to the dead and wounded, tomorrow is another day in which the people of Britain will go to work and carry on as normal.

This is certainly the right way to behave after such an event, if we change our routine due to fear and intimidation the terrorist bastards have won. We will not let this happen.

The only worry I have now is that Tony Blair and Bush will start playing ‘Real Life Duke Nukem’ again and order the soldiers in Iraq to start bombing towns unnecessarily. This will create more hate towards The Western World and inevitably further attacks like today. The terrorists must be brought to justice, but in the correct way.

Two final thoughts on the matter, firstly the telephone number in which friends and relatives can trace missing loved ones. It’s a 0870 number – national/premium rate. I know costs have to be covered but surely the money for a freephone number could be found? With the state of the mobile phone networks many people will be forced to use pay phones, 0870 numbers are very expensive to ring and if you have no change how could one find out how their loved ones are?

Secondly, I wonder if Big Brother will inform the housemates of today’s tragedy? While unnecessary panic should not be installed into the house, the housemates have a right to know, especially as many of them are Londoners. I know the rules state “No contact with the outside world” but at the end of the day Big Brother is only a game.

That’s the lot for today; my thoughts of course go out to the family, friends and victims of today’s events.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
