Bombs in London

As everyone probably knows by now, London has just been bombed, although Seb Coe’s jubilant face still lights up BBC News. I heard the explosion at 9.50ish which must have been the bus down Tavistock Place being hit. A colleague had just pointed out the unusual sirens which must have been for the tube explosions. It still seems too early to say who did it and why although the G8 Summit is an obvious reason for the timing. Although, as far as I am aware, no-one I know has been hurt, I did get a horrible feeling when I heard the explosion coming from the direction of Kings Cross where my wife should have been arriving at 9.50ish. She is fine and stuck in north London. The main worry now is how to get home.

And, of course, what really needs to be said at this early stage is that please can we please have no knee-jerk reactions to invade Iran, introduce internment, or think that global warming and poverty suddenly don’t matter anymore.
