    I was in london last week at college and Edgware is the station I use to commute there. If I was at college this week, I would have been on that exact train and died! dun dun duuuuunnnnn.

    Let's hope they catch the b****rds that did this!

    Got a text from a mate to say the Police did a controlled explosion aboard a bus on Princes Street in Edinburgh this evening. Said he'd been asked to leave the shop by the back door to avoid the going near the bus.

    We
    Well a nasty day getting from London Bridge to Canary Wharf an dback. 2hrs each way by car.

    We have to expect this but it doesn;t make me any less angry. Or resolute in believing that we must stay the course in Afganistan and Iraq.

    Ok guys i dont know if this is right but an 0870 number is charged expensively isnt it? ( think i saw it in a thread above) and the emergency helpline that has been given out to avoid 999 jamming starts with 0870...if this is right and theyre making money then this is a disgrace.

    rofl calm down, its charged at local rate

    edit: it couldnt be an 0800 as the sheer cost of running it due to the high volume of idiots calling (e.g. my best friends, uncles, dog lives near london is it dead?)

    Crazy!!!!!!! hopefully just a harmless package left by a passenger. Last thing we need is extremists copycating acts across the UK.


    My thoughts are with the people of London who are affected by this cowardly act.

    Luckily i don't work in central london. The bloke who sits behind me at work came in very shaken up this morning, he was in the area as the attacks started happening but managed to get on a train out of london and so got to work.

    I'm just hoping no-one i know was caught up in this (I know lots of people who travel into London through the area affected).

    My thoughts are with all those who have been affected by todays terrible events.

    RIP to those who lost their lives so needlessly, and i hope all those injured have a speedy and full recovery.

    May those responsible be caught and punished, and have the burdon of those lives they took bearing down on them for eternity.

    erm yeh? what you think im just gonna expect it one day and then just forget about it?

    the cops, gov, terrorists, etc been saying its not a matter of IF but WHEN, and every other day they are foiling bad guys like scooby doo and then eventually when they get away with one everyone is like OMG! they hate us!!!

    So i guess you Uker's get a taste of what us Americans felt. Shame it had to happen. I just hope no one twists this attack around to say "OMG it happened because we backed the USA". I also hope that the rest of Europe wakes up and realizes that we are in this together. They don't care who you are. As long as you aren't them [hell you can even be them and they still wont care] they will hate you and try to kill you.

    And how do you expect people to react?

    Like this? : "Oh well, it was going to happen anyway, no loss"
    Or like this? : "Oh my god, those ******s, I hate them"


    Stop being a dick, and understand that people leading an everyday life, do not expect to wake up having London bombed on TV.

    i think it happened because we backed the usa. (since afghanistan, not just now with iraq)

    i think if we didnt back the usa then it wouldnt have happened.

    I hope you wake up and realise that we really don't need another "Either you're with us, or against us", militant, narrowminded polarising rant right now.
