    I feel safe where I am, but this has chilled me big time, especially with future visiting to London. I guess this was sadly waiting to happen, but the timing is scary. Whether this was timed to co-incide with the Olympic celebrations or whether it was because of the G8 it’s still scary to think that it can happen on our shores.

    At this time my thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of both the injured and dead.

    as long as nothing else happens, we’ve got off lightly. it’s awful beyond belief for those directly involved but in the grand scheme of things.. ….there were no chemicals involved, no bio weapons. the lights are still on around the country, we’re not under threat from planes not in pilot’s control – strike jets are not about to bomb the city as we do to other capitals. there may well still be problems that have to be guarded against.. air traffic controllers could be stuck in traffic, tired – or people doing overtime making mistakes. ..who knows. if we think of what could have happened, it seems pretty light. don’t let anyone say this is our sept 11. if you think spending ?25,000,000,000 on ID cards is a bad idea, it is still a bad idea, even after this. if the capital’s 10,000 cctv cameras haven’t caught anyone creating this carnage, why not? who gains from this?

    and also, which tunnel did blair use to get back to downing st? where did his chopper land? i didnt see his car go through the streets…

    Thought SKY’s coverage was quite good. Did anyone see BBC News 24? They showed a report at 11.50 this morning and told us to “look away”if we thought we would be disturbed.

    What they showed was sick, disgraceful, I have cried all day after seeing one 10 second shot. i will never forget it.

    It was a macabre invasion of privacy that went beyond all neccesity. I have e.mailed them with my views.

    I am a 30 year old bloke and don’t concider myself to be easily shocked.

    Sky News’ coverage has been used on Fox News.

    Being at work during the day, thankfully about 200 miles away from London, I have missed the coverage during thw day. But I have watched the various news networks for updates.

    Needless to say this has been covered, obviously on all UK networks, but also CNN, Fox and Al Jazeera.
