Well everyone better start saving for ID cards cos were well getting them now.
Don't get me wrong, I think whats happened today is a tragedy, its awful people have deied and been injured. The emergency services are doing a fantastic job. But this attack has played right into Tony Blairs, blood stained hands. The reporting of this is shocking. I watched it quite a bit this morning and it was just the same images over and over again; the paramedics putting equipment on their backs, ambulances flying round to get to hospital. This will be another 9/11, images will be encoded into viewers brains, and as soon as Blair mentions the word 'terrorist' these images will come pouring back into our brain, thus winning him public support of the liberty eroding ID cards. But the public will be so frightened of this happening again they'll support it. Its authoritarian populism. You'll be able to follow it unwinding over the next few weeks.
Another things thats so shcking, its nooo where near as bad as the Bali of Madrid bombing, if Al-Quaeda wanted to do some damage they really would have, they have the intelligence to and ability ( see 9/11, madrid, bali). This seems to be an attempt to stop things in London, all fact all the bombs were on public transport system won't be coincidence, it'l be calculated.
